Hit Rewind 80s – #TheNext40 Recap for Week Ending July 26, 1986

Hello fellow 80’s Music lovers! This concept is so simple:  Each week, we will be rewinding back to “The Next 40″ of one week in the 80s. Rather than stopping at the Top 40, we will be rewinding back Billboard hits from Nos. 41 to 80.  This will allow us all to get a better look into those hits that have bubbled just under the Top 40 charts, as well as some that are moving up or down the list, and throwing in a few more that made a quick visit never to return again. This week, we rewind back to July 26, 1986 to check out #TheNext40 hits!  Click the Song Title for a link to YouTube clips along with a Spotify playlist at the bottom to listen along during your upcoming work week (titles with asterisk are not found currently on Spotify):
