"Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis (f/Jeff Wendle)

This week, Jeff Wendle sits in for our first episode ever about an INSTRUMENTAL one hit wonder. Greek composer Vangelis hit the top of the charts with the theme from the 1981 film “Chariots of Fire”, unseating Joan Jett from the #1 spot and becoming a staple of running montages for decades to come. Regardless of knowing the title of the song, EVERYONE knows it…but is it deserving of such high praise? That’s what we try to figure out this week.
