This week in music: 1984

(KFVS) -

Let's drop a few quarters in our jukebox of memories.  This morning we travel back 31 years to this week in 1984.

And what a week it was with some of the biggest stars of the 80's charting hits on Billboard's Hot 100.

At number 5 was Madonna with Lucky Star. It was the singer's first single to crack the top five.

Wham! held down the number four spot with Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go which was written by Wham member George Michael.

Prince had a hit movie and a hit single.  The title track from the movie Purple Rain was at number 3.

In the runner up spot was another song from a movie out at the time.  I Just Called to Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder was featured in The Lady in Red.

And Billy Ocean was at number one with Caribbean Queen.  It spent two weeks in the top spot and was a hit around the world with different titles for different areas such as European Queen or African Queen.

That's a look at this week in music, 1984.
