DEF: Mike + The Mechanics “Silent Running”
British band Mike + the Mechanics have hit the Top 40 four times, with three of those hits reaching the Top 10 and all of them appearing onÂ Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart during the 1980s. The group’s very first chart appearance turned into their first Top 40 and first Top 10 hit. Exactly 30 years ago, that song — “Silent Running” — climbed to a peak position of number 6, where it spent one week. Today, “Silent Running” by Mike + the Mechanics is the Daily Eighties Flashback.
