We then put our heads together for over six months and have come up with what I believe are the most significant, most watchable  Music Movies of 1980. Ultimately this is my opinion, and I am open to feedback; however, I am pretty sure any true movie fan will agree with me. (Yes, that’s designed to irritate you, so you comment.)
