We've covered all the songs that reached No. 2 but no farther in the United States - our Close But No Cigar series - but what about the UK? This episode of Stuck in the '80s is our debut of the new series: Just Missed the Biscuit. We begin with songs from 1973 to 1975 including tunes by David Bowie, Queen, the Carpenters and more.
The Stuck in the '80s podcast is sponsored by The 80s Cruise. Join all your '80s friends on the Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas on Feb. 29 to March 7 for a weeklong trip back to the '80s.
