We’re shifting the focus of the latest Briefs List back to the greatest aspect of 80’s pop culture … the music, which remains the ultimate pop music decade. For this list, we’re going to focus on the ladies, and countdown the The Top 100 Hits Of The Ladies Of the 80’s. There are only two rules: all the songs had to hit the Billboard Top Ten, and they’re all from women … whether solo or with a group. Ready to jog your memory?

At #81 is … “Change Of Heart” by Cyndi Lauper . The first Cyndi song on the list, it was the second single from True Colors, and features The Bangles on backing vocals. It peaked at #3 in February 1987.
