#3? Really?

I hosted a Twitter-based game tonight that really had about five players, with one consistent player throughout the evening. I called it "Lyrics Showcase" and you can see it here. Basically, I would tweet lyrics from an 80's song and players had to name the song.

In the process, I learned that the awesomely 80's Patti LaBelle & Michael McDonald song, "On My Own," was the #3 song on Billboard's Hot 100 songs for 1986.

Really, 1986? That's the best you could do?

Anyway, by request of the good folks at Universal Music Group, embedding the original video is not allowed. BUT! Here's a live performance from 2000, which is still pretty 80s. Enjoy it in all its wondrous glory:
