RPM Canada's National Top 25 from January 26, 1980.


25. Streetheart - "Under My Thumb"

24. Frank Mills - "Peter Piper"
23. Joe Jackson - "I'm the Man"

1. The Sugarhill Gang - "Rapper's Delight"

It was the first time a rap song went to #1 in any country in the world. Much like other paradigm shifting occurences, once this moment happens pop music completely changes though we didn't recognize the moment as such at the time.
