Welcome back to this week’s episode of Uncle Bing’s Favorite Songs. We have a new number one song this week — Asia’s big hit from 1982, “Heat of the Moment.” You may remember the song from its stark portrayal of a young couple who begin a hasty relationship and then worry about what their future will bring. I’ve provided a link to the music video for the song (along with a few others).
There are two new songs on the chart this week, one of which is called, ironically, “New Song.” One of the biggest movers of the week is by “Sneaker.” It’s a nice mellow ballad that no one else but me seems to ever heard of, even though it was a Top 40 song in 1981. There are also a lot of “lame duck” songs falling down the chart this week, so I expect a lot of new songs next week.
Which of these songs do you like and why? Look for another update next week.
