Billboard Hot 100 #1 Singles 1980-1989

Billboard Magazine was founded in 1894 as a general entertainment publication, but by the 1980s it had narrowed its focus exclusively to music. Each week, Billboard publishes the Hot 100 and Hot 200 lists both for specific genres of music and for popular music overall, ranking the top singles in the United States for that week. The following list is every single that reached #1 on the Hot 100 chart for the years 1980 through 1989 in chronological order.
