Well, by the mid-80`s the musical climate was changing and chart success became less relevant for musical value, I think. Remember that records by Tom Waits and R.E.M. in the 80`s, to name a few, didn`t chart very high either. But those records are classics these days anyway. And the most exciting records in the 2000`s, by artists like The Flaming Lips, Wilco and Arcade Fire, are not big commercial successes either. To me, the combination of a cathcy tune and charting high was more relevant in the 60`s and the 70`s. The last McCartney number 1 single was "Say Say say", in America, and "Pipes Of peace", in the UK. But it`s not like McCartney didn`t keep on turning out catchy songs. To this day! But the general public, or marketing, was looking going somewhere else. Eurodance in the 90`s, for excample. And hip hop. : )
