Every artist can only chart with one song.

Didn't know "Rhythm of the Night" was 80s hit. I always thought it was Cascada's single.

The Cascada remake is another song, "The Rhythm Of The Night", which was originally recorded in the 1990s, by Italian band Corona.

Corona - "The Rhythm Of The Night" (1994)

From the first batch I like Bronski Beat, George Harrison, and Eddy Grant. #94-#90 are all good. I don't know #89 :)

I much prefer the DeBarge song to the dance one. It's such cheese but its a likable fun song.

DeBarge and REO are my faves so far.
