Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

VH-1 came out with a list of the top 100 one hit wonders of the 1980s. What I have here are the top 10 of that list. Now I do not agree with at least three on this list, but that is just me.... but what do you all think??

Surely we know better than the folks at VH-1 do. We should form a GOS-1 Top 10 list..... Get off my lawn!....that will show them!

Anyways, there list for the top 10 one hit wonders of the 1980s is:

01      Dexys Midnight Runners "Come on Eileen"
02      Flock of Seagulls "I Ran (So Far Away)"
03      A-Ha "Take On Me"      
04      Tommy Tutone "867-5309 / Jenny"
05      Soft Cell "Tainted Love"      
06      Toni Basil "Mickey"  
07      Modern English "I Melt With You"      
08      Bow Wow Wow "I Want Candy"    
09      Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"  
10      Frankie Goes to Hollywood "Relax"      

So, what do you people think? Where did they go right or wrong? (Personally I find fault with....no, no, I shall stay out of this one.....lest my personal feelings cause me to fling myself off a rooftop on such an important issue.)

But pull up a seat and let us know what you think.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
