Flashback Cafe Flashback Facts: 1985 in Music

Get your old school education on with Flashback Facts!

Today it’s all about the music as we go back to 1985 in music!

This week in 1985, ‘We are the World’ by USA for Africa was number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, soon to be replaced by Madonna’s “Crazy For You.”

Tears for Fears had the biggest song of the year with ‘Shout.’

In rock news, David Lee Roth left Van Halen to start a solo career.

And Madonna made waves when she launched her first ever tour in Seattle, named ‘The Virgin Tour’ after her Like a Virgin album.

We’ve come a long way!
