"You can't look trashy until you spend a lot of money." Billy Joel tops the pop chart with "It's Still Rock & Roll." It's his is his first #1.




Also, Queen's "The Game," containing "Another One Bites The Dust" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" (both eventual #1s), enter the LP chart. 1980 

Do the charts really matter? The best track on Van Halen's "5150" album, "Dreams," can only get to #22 on the pop charts. Meanwhile "Invisible Touch" from Genesis is #1. 1986
