Smokey Robinson is known for quite a few songs. One of which comes from his 1978 disco album "Love Breeze", which debuted the start of his disco phase, possibly his best phase in his entire career. "Why You Want To See My Bad Side" is the first track from the album and it is truly the best in my honest opinion. Featured as well in GTA V on WorldWide.FM, the song has made its way into the modern era. (This is the absolute best quality video I could find of the song)
November 18, 1978 - Billy Joel went to No.1 on the US album chart with his sixth studio album, '52nd Street'. It was the first of four Joel albums to top the Billboard charts.
Three songs reached the Top 40 in the United States, contributing to the album's success: "My Life" (No.3), "Big Shot" (No.14), and "Honesty" (No.24). It was similarly well received by critics, earning 1979 Grammys for Best Pop Vocal Performance - Male and Album of the Year. This 'Best Album' Grammy was presented to its producer, Phil Ramone. Upon Ramone's death in 2013, 52nd Street's Album of the Year Grammy was passed on to Joel.
Allmusic praises Joel for expanding stylistically on 1977's The Stranger, describing 52nd Street as "more sophisticated and somewhat jazzy." (Jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard guests on "Zanzibar".) The title is a reference to 52nd Street, which was one of New York City's jazz centers in the middle of the century. Joel's label was headquartered on 52nd Street (in the CBS Building) at the time of the album's release. The studio in which 52nd Street was recorded was also on 52nd Street, a block away from the CBS Building.
On October 1, 1982, 52nd Street became the first album to be commercially released on compact disc by Sony Music Entertainment when it went on sale in Japan. In 2003, the album was ranked number 352 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

This is one I did a while back of Michael Myers from 'Halloween' Back then, I thought this looked amazing. Looking at it again made me have second thoughs. So with that said, I'll probably redo it.
I hated The Decline because it caught the end of the movement rather than its peak, when it was something really good and hopeful. That feeling of anarchy and tearing down the Establishment – to me, those were positive things. - from an interview with details magazine. #fbf#1978
