DEF: Miami Sound Machine “Conga”
Miami Sound Machine hit the Top 40 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart with all nine songs they placed on the chart. That success started with “Conga,” which was not only the band’s first appearance on the Hot 100 and first Top 40 hit; it was also the first of their seven Top 10 hits. On this date in 1986, “Conga” climbed to its peak position of number 10. Today, “Conga” by Miami Sound Machine is the Daily Eighties Flashback.
