    1. Wow – Kate Bush @Ome
    2. Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd @Angela Channing
    3. Boys Don't Cry - The Cure @Toni
    4. Da Ya Think I'm Sexy-Rod Stewart @jessie
    5. Bat out of Hell – Meat Loaf @Ome
    6. I Was Made For Dancin' - Leif Garrett @Willie Oleson
    7. This Is It - Dan Hartman @Mel O’Drama
    8. Born To Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez @Emelee
    9. Lydia - Dean Friedman @Willie Oleson
    10.Pop Muzik – M @Mel O’Drama

    I didn't realise how much I enjoy music from 1979 and I've had to leave a lot of other favorites out of my top ten.

    I'm going to guess this was @jessie 's choice.

    The title means "After school", and the song is a classic. :)

    In that case I'm glad I've picked a true classic (albeit unknown to the rest of us).

    Agreed :D

    It's also nice to see a song get the recognition above all the usual big hits that keep winning.

    Miss Piggy wants me to make a statement for her saying that she was too young at the time to even remember that year, so she wasn´t among the Muppets who "brought us" this option. Anyway, she wishes the Soapchat Forum well and suggests a new name for it: "Soap Chops". :cool:

    :rolleyes: Are you saying that's she younger than Victoria Principal? Big deal! Everyone's younger than Victoria Principal.

    But anyway, thanks @jessie for choosing 1979 for this Top Ten. I hope it was a good year to you, like it was to me.
    There were many other great tunes we couldn't nominate because they weren't in the charts.

    1979 was a great year for music, thank you @jessie for picking this year and giving me a reason to listen to some great songs I've not heard in a while.
