The top ranked song for 1979, numero uno, defined one of the new directions popular music was headed as the next decade beckoned. A quasi punk song and Number One for six weeks, it was as far removed from disco as one could imagine. For your lyrical clue, we provide three lines repeated at the end of each of the three verses. You can't ask for more than that! What hit was it?|
"Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up for the touch of the younger kind
My, my, my, aye-aye, whoa!"
Ranked third for 1978 was a disco oriented number with a show-tune motif that was the surprise sensation of the year. It never reached the top of the Billboard charts, stymied at Number Two for three weeks behind the hit that would ultimately rank 6th for the year. It did, however, make Number One in Canada, the U.K. and Australia and probably many other places around the globe. Let's see if you get it, and I'm sure you will, from this slice of the lyric.|
"Young man, there's no need to feel down
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground
I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town
There's no need to be unhappy"
