This week in music: 1985

(KFVS) -

Let's take a trip back in time and check some entertainment headlines from 1985.

Vince Coleman was stealing bases, Jack Clarke was supplying the power  and nobody could beat John Tudor on the mound.  The Cardinals would go on to win the National League pennant only to lose the the Royals in the World Series.

Among the best selling books of that year was Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry.

The biggest movie of the year was Back to the Future.

Here on KFVS12 people were tuned into Murder She Wrote and Dallas.

And these were the hit songs being played on the radio this week 31 years ago.  Billboard's Hot 100 had a big comeback song for Aretha Franklin at number five. Freeway of Love was the queen of soul's first top ten hit in 13 years.

Sting was going solo at the time.  His hit If You Love Somebody Set Them Free was in the number four spot.

At number three was Canadian singer Corey Hart with Never Surrender. It was Hart's biggest chart hit.

We mentioned Back to the Future earlier, a song from that movie was in the number two spot.  The Power of Love would go on to become the first number one hit for Huey Lewis and the News.

And in the top spot was the British band Tears for Fears with Shout.  It's one of the most popular songs from the mid-1980's and is considered the group's signature song.
