1983: After cracking the Top 20 a year earlier with "The Break-up Song", San Francisco's Greg Kihn Band reaches #2 on the Hot 100 with a song called "Jeopardy". A year later, Weird Al Yankovic will parody the song as "I Lost On Jeopardy", which has since been referenced several times on the game show itself.

1984: Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do With It" is released. The song would eventually climb to number one, win Grammys for record and song of the year and established Turner as a major solo star. When Tina left her husband and former band mate Ike Turner in 1975, she was carrying nothing more than thirty-six cents in change and a gas station credit card.
