The project continues with my favorite songs of 1982. Read the first post for the detail on this project.
I remember the music of 1982 well, because I received a portable radio/tape player as a first communion gift. That radio and I were inseparable, and every Sunday I would listen to America’s Top 40 with Casey Kasem. Looking at the Billboard charts for 1982, I’m familiar with pretty much every song, which I can’t say for a lot of years.
Come On Eileen – Dexy’s Midnight Runners
Gardening at Night – R.E.M.
I Melt With You – Modern English
1999 – Prince and the Revolution
Our House – Madness
Pass The Dutchie – Musical Youth
Save It For Later – The English Beat
Sexual Healing – Marvin Gaye
Steppin’ Out – Joe Jackson
Straight to Hell – The Clash
And my song of shame for 1982: Pac-Man Fever – Buckner and Garcia
