FLASHBACK: America's Top 10 August 16, 1981

DO NOT ADJUST YOUR VOLUME!
According to burtiscurtis09, our benevolent video benefactor for these episodes of America's Top 10, the show was originally broadcast and recorded with silence until 1:45 into the show, when the sound suddenly comes back. The Pop Spotlight video was "Elvira" by the Oak Ridge Boys though it is unclear what the Soul Spotlight video was.  The LP Spotlight is by Kim Carnes though the song's title was cut out and no portions of the video are shown.  There is a brief interview with Rick Springfield but not much else to the episode, based on the Billboard charts for the week ending August, 15th, 1981.  Watch it after the following countdown-style playlists and then check out even more playlists after the video.
