Holy Godiva and I picked five songs each that reached the UK Top Ten for each year in the eighties... and this is what we ended up with.

Given that a Yeti used copy and paste from other entries before editing them, there might be errors in some of the information here, if you spot something, let me know and I'll get my golf club back out to smash randomly against the keyboard.
