I spent the Summer of 1980 as an intern for my small town newspaper and having massive amounts of sex. The latter part of that sentence isn't true, but I did learn from a reporter at the Shore Line Times that sex sells, which is why I guess I did an article on motel vacancies in our little town. I would ride up and down miles of hills on my bicycle to get to the newsroom, with a portable radio playing the top hits of the day which were not particularly exciting. If Rocky Burnette's "Tired of Toein' The Line" came out, I'd perk up a little. Anyways here's the list, on this particular week:
1. Paul McCartney "Coming Up"
