DANCE MUSIC REPORT 1985 YEAR END Hi-NRG TOP 80

First published in 1978 as Disco News, Dance Music Report was an American twice monthly music magazine focussing on the music played in nightclubs and for radio DJs who promoted dance music. It continued to be published until 1992. Alongside reporting about dance music, DMR published various charts, including a Hi-NRG chart, throughout the 80s. Here is DMR’s Hi-NRG top 80 for 1985:

Although many of these tracks appear in the other Hi-NRG charts I have posted from the UK and Europe, here are ten tracks, including a brilliant U.S. remix of Fun Fun’s “Give Me Your Love”, that didn’t make an appearance in the Record Mirror or Radio Stad Den Haag charts.
