Unfortunately, time has caught up with the Bottom Feeders camp, so there will be a one-week delay for the 45th installment. (Dave just wants everyone to read the 44th installment again, but if you interpret this delay as a tribute to our 44th president, Dave and his teething infant son won’t mind. —Ed.) To hold you over until we continue next week, I give you three songs from the Billboard Hot Dance/Disco chart during the 1980s.

Indeep
“The Record Keeps Spinning” — 1984, #32

I.R.T.
“Watch the Closing Doors” — 1984, #6

India
“Dancing on the Fire” — 1988, #15

Finally, while this has nothing to do with the ’80s, it screams out what Bottom Feeders is all about. Until Monday night I thought no one would ever be able to wiggle under the bar that was set so low by D4L’s “Laffy Taffy,” but by the grace of God, I present you with what is probably the lowest point of the entire decade — maybe all of music history, for that matter. Feast your eyes on the G-Spot Boyz and their “hit” song, “Stanky Legg.”

You have to wonder why more people don’t just pick two notes on their Fisher-Price keyboard and any two random words and have a hit record.

Please forgive me for the sin of “Stanky Legg” and come back next week, when we continue with the letter J and I premiere my video for “Do the Douchebag Crunch.”
