The Year in Music-1985(Site not responding. Last check: )
1985 was the year that the Second British Invasion reached its pinnacle -- and then began a precipitous decline, as New Wave/New Romantic music suddenly lost much of its glitter.
Speaking of heavy metal, all those who had previously proclaimed that heavy metal was dead had egg on their face; in fact, 1985 marked the beginning of a renaissance in hard rock that would thrive through the end of the decade.
The Second British Invasion reaches its high water mark in 1985; as summer begins, Madonna is the only all-American act in the US Top Ten, the rest being British (except for The Power Station, which is Anglo-American.) Non-Americans have a record eight consecutive US chart-toppers and seven of these are British.
