The Top Chart Hits of October 31st, 1981: A Look Back at the Music Scene

Well, well, well, if it isn’t October 31st, 1981! A day that will forever be etched in the annals of music history. Not because it was the day that the world was introduced to the musical stylings of a certain British band called Duran Duran, but because it was the day that the Billboard Top 100 was graced with some of the most iconic songs of the 80s. So, let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

First up, we have the one and only “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” by Christopher Cross. Now, if you’re scratching your head and wondering who the heck Arthur is, let me enlighten you. Arthur is a lovable drunk millionaire from a movie of the same name, and this song was the theme tune. It’s a classic 80s ballad that makes you want to sway gently while holding a lighter in the air. Or, if you’re Arthur, a martini glass.

Next on the list, we have “Start Me Up” by The Rolling Stones. Now, this is a song that needs no introduction. It’s the kind of song that makes you want to jump up, grab your air guitar, and start strutting around your living room like Mick Jagger. It’s a rock anthem that has stood the test of time, much like the Stones themselves.

Then we have “Private Eyes” by Hall & Oates. This song is a classic example of the 80s pop-rock sound, complete with catchy hooks and a chorus that you can’t help but sing along to. And let’s not forget the iconic music video, which features the duo in trench coats and fedoras, looking like they’ve just stepped out of a film noir.

But let’s not forget about “Endless Love” by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. This song is the epitome of a power ballad, with Ross and Richie’s voices blending together in perfect harmony. It’s the kind of song that makes you want to grab your loved one, look deeply into their eyes, and declare your undying love for them. Or, if you’re single, it’s the kind of song that makes you want to grab a tub of ice cream and wallow in self-pity.

And finally, we have “Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie. This song is a masterpiece, plain and simple. It’s the kind of song that makes you want to bang your head and sing at the top of your lungs. And let’s not forget that iconic bassline, which was later sampled by Vanilla Ice in his hit song “Ice Ice Baby”.

So there you have it, folks. The top chart hits of October 31st, 1981. It was a time when music was fun, catchy, and unapologetically 80s.
