A “free-for-all” after Disco implodes! Michael Jackson spectacularly survives “Disco Sucks” but the Bee Gees and Chic have to retreat behind the glass to the producer’s booth. New Wave isn’t the next big thing (yet), but Queen and Pink Floyd are charting #1 singles, John Lennon is back in the studio, and Adult Contemporary continues to thrive.
