Very Special

With Bottom Feeders: The Ass End of the ’80s, Dave Steed of is cataloging every song that charted outside the top 40 but within Billboard‘s Hot 100 in the ’80s. This is a fascinating, if huge, project that I’m overjoyed that I stumbled upon. Steed has been at this for a year, but he’s only up to the “L” artists in the alphabet. A lot of good stuff falls in this area — R&B, Hip Hop, Metal, Adult Contemporary and Country hits with limited mass appeal, obscurities from outside the U.S., movie soundtrack junk, lesser-known singles from big name acts, etc. If anything, it allows me to hear previously unheard gems like Stacy Lattisaw’s “Attack of the Name Game.”

  1. Awesome. I’m glad you stumbled across it and hope you enjoy the next year as well. Thanks for reading and spreading the word.

    This is a great find! In approximately 15 seconds of skimming, I was reminded of 1987’s “Boom Boom”, and I’m not going to be quite the same for a while. Love it!

  3. Songs from the fringe of the Billboard charts are usually my favorites. That site is great. And I love Stacey Lattisaw’s ‘Attack of the Name Game’. I found a 12″ vinyl copy last time I visited New York. It was 1.99 in a bargain bin. The rapping robot is, of course, amazing. Though I still can’t figure out how to play the Name Game. :/
