My wife and I went down to The Record Guys to get a needle for my dad's record player.

While we were there, we looked through thousands of albums. Then, from across the store, Donna yells "honey look, do you remember this one?" as she held up the vintage Steve Wariner album "One Good Night Deserves Another". That was the album that had his first number one hit "Some Fools Never Learn". The summer of '85 also had other amazing songs like it.

Check out the top 5 songs from the summer of 1985
