Thanks for checking out our little show at 7:10am daily for I Know That Song!
Today's number one song (and best selling single) from 1980 was about a "working girl." It was written for the film American Gigolo, where it plays in a scene where the lead character is "working."
In addition to American Gigolo, This song has been used in these films:
Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)
For the Love of Money (2012)
Bride of Chucky (1998)
And these TV shows:
Mindhunter ("Episode #2.2" - 2019)
RuPaul's Drag Race ("New Wave Queens" - 2016)
Family Ties ("Double Date" - 1984)
The writer of the song, Italian Disco King, Giorgio Moroder, had originally wanted Stevie Nicks for the song but she declined due to a record label conflict.
If you haven't guessed it yet, it's Call Me by Blondie. (and for fun check out their performance with the Muppets)
