I faired a bit better with that list:

JOHN LENNON - IMAGINE
JOE DOLCE - SHADDUP YOU FACE (okay, forgive me please!)
DAVE STEWART & BARBARA GASKIN - ITS MY PATY (just about anything released on Stiff Records was a winner!)
POLICE - EVERY LITTLE THING SHE DOES IS MAGIC
QUEEN & DAVID BOWIE - UNDER PRESSURE

Speaking of "Bette Davis Eyes", I thought the parody version was funny.

I got married in December of that year, so much of it was spent in getting ready,,,,but I did manage to remember over half of that list. Many brought a smile and fond memories to mind.

I have to agree with you on that one George, I had it bad for Sheena Easton.

Not really much on that list I listened to. I was big into Pink Floyd's The Wall. I have always been more into hard rock or heavy metal than the top 40 pop stuff.
