    "Shadows in the Moonlight" is a song written by Charlie Black and Rory Bourke and recorded by country and pop music singer Anne Murray. Released in 1979, the song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart that July, and was one of three chart-toppers for her during the year. "Shadows in the Moonlight" was Murray's third No. 1 single on the country chart and fourth overall (counting "You Needed Me," which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978).
    "Shadows in the Moonlight" was released during Murray's peak as a crossover artist, and the song was one of several that also charted on the Hot 100. The song peaked at #25 in July, around the time it topped the country chart. The song also spent three weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart in 1979.

    "Top of the World" is a 1972 song by The Carpenters. Originally recorded for and released on the duo's 1972 studio album A Song for You, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in late 1973, becoming the duo's second U.S. number 1 single. Originally intended to be only an album cut for the Carpenters, country entertainer Lynn Anderson covered the song and her version nearly topped the U.S. country singles chart (reaching #2). Karen Carpenter re-recorded the song for the band's first compilation as she was not quite satisfied with the original. Brother Richard Carpenter has remixed the song's vocals, most recently for their 35th Anniversary Gold compilation.
    In Japan, the song was used as the opening theme song for the 1995 Japanese drama Miseinen. In 2003, it was used for another drama, this time as the ending theme song for Beginner. The song is sung by Monica, Joey and Phoebe in the 7th episode of the first season of TV series Friends, while Ross is attacked by a cat out on the balcony.
    It appeared on the 2010 soundtrack of Shrek Forever After, as well as in a prominent scene of the 2012 film Dark Shadows, with a performance by the Carpenters seen on a television screen; its use in the latter film is slightly anachronistic as the movie is set in 1972, yet the song didn't become a hit until the fall of 1973.

    "Yesterday Once More", written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis, is a hit song by The Carpenters from their 1973 album Now & Then. Composed in the key of E, "Yesterday Once More" features a long middle section, consisting of eight covers of 1960s tunes incorporated into a faux oldies radio program. The work takes up the entire side B of the album.
    The single version of the song peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 1 on the easy listening chart, becoming their eighth number 1 on that chart in four years. It is the Carpenters' biggest-selling record worldwide and their best-selling single in the UK, peaking at number 2. Richard Carpenter admitted on a Japanese documentary that it is his favorite of all the songs he's written. He has performed an instrumental version at concerts.
    According to Cash Box, on June 2, 1973, "Yesterday Once More" was the highest-debuting single, at No. 71. By August 4, it had reached No. 1.
    Dionne Warwick, a close friend of The Carpenters, performed it live in Las Vegas the night before Karen Carpenter's untimely death in 1983

    "When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman" was a popular single by Dr. Hook. It was recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, Alabama.
    Written by Even Stevens, When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman first appeared on the band's 1978 album Pleasure and Pain. Riding the disco wave in 1979 it belatedly became an international hit, reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the USA and doing even better in the UK where it spent three weeks at number one in November 1979. The song was subsequently added to the band's 1979 album A Little Bit More

    "What's Another Year" was Johnny Logan's first Eurovision Song Contest winner, achieving success in the 1980 edition of the Contest. This was Ireland's second Contest victory. Composed by Shay Healy, the song reached number one in the UK for two weeks in May.
    The song is often misinterpreted as a power ballad, sung from the point of view of a man who has been waiting for the girl of his dreams to fall in love with him. On some level, he seems to recognise that she will never share his feelings, but he still holds them regardless. The title appears in the chorus, specifically "What's another year/To someone who is getting used to being alone?" In other words, he is prepared to wait as long as it takes. In reality, the song was written by Shay Healy (who also wrote "the Ultimate Country and Western Song" performed by Billy Connolly) about watching his father coming to terms with the death of his wife and companion, Mairin
    When showband frontman Glen Curtin, the original choice of singer, turned down "What's Another Year", the song was rearranged by Bill Whelan to suit Johnny Logan's singing style. Whelan later composed Riverdance for the interval entertainment slot at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin. Musically, the song is easily identifiable by its saxophone introduction played by Scottish musician Colin Tully, who now lives and teaches in Wales. The success of "What's Another Year" launched Logan's Eurovision career (he would go on to success in 1987 with "Hold Me Now"). In addition, the song was selected as one of the 14 greatest Eurovision entries in a special to mark the 50th anniversary of the contest. It was covered by Shane McGowan of The Pogues in the "Song for Eurotrash" cover album of 1998.
    Famously, after being announced as the winner of the Contest, Logan was overcome with emotion and could not achieve the high notes near the end of the song in his reprise. Instead, he called out "I love you Ireland", a phrase he would repeat seven years later.
    The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following France's Profil with "Hé, hé M'sieurs dames" and preceding Spain's Trigo Limpio with "Quédate esta noche"). At the close of voting, it had received 143 points, placing 1st in a field of 19. The song was succeeded as Eurovision winner at the Eurovision Song Contest 1981 by British band Bucks Fizz and the song "Making Your Mind Up". It was succeeded as Irish representative at the 1981 Contest by Sheeba with "Horoscopes".
    In Germany, Johnny Logan released a German language version of "What's Another Year", entitled "Was ist schon ein Jahr". In Portugal the single was released (in English) with a minor typing error on the front sleeve as "What's Another Year!"

    "Always" was the second single from All in the Name of Love, the seventh album from R&B group, Atlantic Starr. The song went to number one on both the Hot Black Singles and Billboard Hot 100 charts in June 1987. The song also spent two weeks atop the U.S. adult contemporary chart. In July, it also topped the Canadian RPM 100 national singles chart, where it remained for two weeks

    Atlantic Star - Secret Lovers



    Here we are, the two of us together
    Taking this crazy chance to be all alone
    We both know that we should not be together
    'Cause if they found out, it could mess up
    Both our happy homes


    I hate to think about us all meeting up together
    'Cause soon as I looked at you, it would show on my face, yeah
    Then they'll know that we've been loving each other
    We can never no, no, no, no, we can't leave a trace


    Sittin' at home I do nothing all day
    But think about you and hope that you're okay
    Hoping you'll call before anyone gets home
    I'll wait anxiously alone by the phone


    How could something so wrong be so right?
    I wish we didn't have to keep our love out of sight, yeah
    Living two lives, just ain't easy at all
    But we gotta hang on and after fall


    Secret lovers, yeah that's what we are
    Trying so hard to hide the way we feel
    'Cause we both belong to someone else
    But we can't let it go 'cause what we feel
    Is, oh so real, so real, so real


    You and me, are we fair?
    Is this cruel or do we care?
    Can they tell that's in our minds?
    Maybe they've had secret love all of the time


    In the middle of makin' love, we notice the time
    We both get nervous 'cause it's way after nine
    Even though we hate it, we know it's time that we go
    We gotta be careful so that no one will know


    Secret lovers, yeah, that's what we are
    We shouldn't be together but we can't let it go
    'Cause what we feel is, oh so real
    So real, so real, so real, so real

    "Tell It to My Heart" is a song recorded by dance-pop vocalist Taylor Dayne, released as her first single from her debut album of the same name in late 1987. The single was Dayne's first major exposure, and she soon became known for her up-tempo, dance-oriented music.
    In 1995, "Tell It to My Heart'" was remixed and re-released to promote Dayne's Greatest Hits package. This version climbed to #23 on the UK Singles Chart.
