"Rolling Stone" Calls 1984 Pop’s Greatest Year … and Lists Its Top 100 Singles

"Rolling Stone" has determined what it believes is pop music’s "greatest year," and not surprisingly it is NOT this year … or last year … or 2008, despite BEYONCÉ’S "Single Ladies", which is obviously one of the best singles OF ALL TIME.

It’s 1984. And to back that up, they’ve listed the year’s “Best 100 Singles.” To qualify, the song had to be released in 1984 or have significant chart impact that year, appearing high on the Billboard Hot 100. Here’s the Top 20:

1. “When Doves Cry”, Prince and the Revolution
2. “Borderline”, Madonna
3. “I Feel for You”, Chaka Khan
4. “Let’s Go Crazy”, Prince and the Revolution
5. “Thriller”, Michael Jackson
6. “Time After Time”, Cyndi Lauper
7. “The Boys of Summer”, Don Henley
8. “Purple Rain”, Prince and the Revolution
9. “Born in the U.S.A.”, Bruce Springsteen
10. “The Glamorous Life”, Sheila E.
11. “What’s Love Got to Do with It?”, Tina Turner
12. “Pride (In the Name of Love)”, U2
13. “Jam on It”, Newcleus
14. “Missing You”, John Waite
15. “99 Luftballons”, Nena
16. “They Don’t Know”, Tracey Ullman
17. “Smooth Operator”, Sade
18. “Take on Me”, A-Ha
19. “Solid”, Ashford & Simpson
20. “Panama”, Van Halen

Photo of the Day: A Family Lets Their Baby Wander Near the Edge of a Cliff

I know that in 2014, getting an AMAZING photo is pretty much the most important thing in the world … but it should come secondary to “keeping your child ALIVE.”


Fred Sirevag is a photographer in Norway. And he was hiking at a place called Pulpit Rock in southern Norway earlier this week … it’s a major tourist attraction there because it has spectacular views of cliffs and the water below.


But some parents were letting their baby crawl RIGHT next to the edge of the cliff … just so they could get a cool photo of her.


The drop off the cliff is 2,000 feet straight down, there’s no railing, and if you fall, you DIE. The tourist association that manages the cliff won’t put a fence up because it would ruin the views and the experience.


Fortunately, the baby did NOT fall off the cliff. But, you know, be careful and don’t let your baby die for the sake of Instagram. You’re welcome.

where is “comfy guy”

WHAT HIS FASHION SENSE SAYS ABOUT HIM

You can tell a lot about a man’s personality just by paying attention to his sense of style. Here’s what his fashion sense says about him:

The Designer Guy: He wears an expensive watch, designer shoes, and tailored suits. He’s never messy and his hair is always in place. If you date this guy, expect to be wined and dined and swept off your feet. Just be careful. Sometimes guys that are obsessive about how they look on the outside are a little too self-centered to be doting and appreciative boyfriends. He might only be looking for some arm candy, so get to know him before falling head over heels.

The Messy Guy: He’s wearing a beanie in the summer because his hair is likely a mess. His jeans are frayed or ripped, and his T-shirt is thoroughly worn in, but obviously well-loved. He is effortlessly sexy in his disheveled state. This guy is most likely passionate and probably artistic or creative in some way. A date with him might be having beers at a low key bar and listening to a local band that he knows a few members of. He is a great conversationalist and dating him will be really fun. However, he might be the kind of guy that makes you feel bad because your iPod has current music on it and the last book you read was 50 Shades of Grey.

The Jock: He is most comfortable in sneakers, a T-shirt and, of course, a baseball cap. He loves sports – he loves to play, watch, tailgate and talk sports. If you love sports, this might be the perfect guy for you. But if you don’t – you have to be willing to either put up with it or spend lots of weekends apart, especially during football season.

The Trendy Guy: He looks like he just walked out of the mall and he is wearing the hottest trends and pulling it off flawlessly. This guy can charm the pants off you …. and he knows it. He knows exactly how to portray himself to whomever he is talking to, so it can be hard to figure out who he really is. This guy could make you fall for him, but never actually fall for you back so you need to be careful!

The Regular Guy: He dresses nice, but not flashy. When you see him you don’t notice his clothes but you notice that he looks good. He is the most well-balanced of all the styles. He might not be the most exciting or passionate, but he is the most reliable and stable. If you are looking for a long-term relationship, this is the guy for you. (College Candy)

Restaurant Workers on the Five Dumbest Customers Ever

If you’ve ever worked at a restaurant for more than four minutes, you’ve encountered a DUMB CUSTOMER. And that means it’s going to take some EPIC dumbness to make the list of the DUMBEST customers.


Restaurant workers have been sharing their stories online about the dumbest customers they’ve ever had. Here are the top five …


1. “I had a woman at a fast food restaurant ask me to clarify whether ‘fat free’ means there’s no fat, or she doesn’t have to pay for the fat.”


2. “When I recommended our artisan pizzas to a woman, she yelled at me that she can’t have pizza because she has an allergy. I asked what kind of allergy, so we could work around it … she said she’s ‘allergic to crunchy.’”


3. “A guy argued with me for five minutes that we were a doctor’s office and not a pizzeria.”


4. “I worked at Arby’s. A guy asked our cashier what mozzarella sticks are. The cashier said they’re like cheese sticks. The guy asked what kind of cheese … and the cashier said, ‘Um, Swiss I think.’”


5. “I worked at a nice restaurant and our pork chops came with polenta. A guy asked me what it was and I explained it’s made from cornmeal. He said, ‘I thought polenta is what comes out after the baby is born’ … and ordered something else.” (Jezebel)
