The project continues with my favorite songs of 1983. Read the first post for the detail on this project.
This is another year where I remember the music well, especially the music I heard that summer in the car on my family’s Friday night outings to Lake Quassy amusement park in Connecticut.
Ashokan Farewell – Evan Stover, Jay Ungar, Matt Glaser, Molly Mason & Russ Barenberg
Blister In The Sun – Violent Femmes
Cruel Summer – Bananarama
Electric Avenue – Eddy Grant
Let The Music Play – Shannon
Let’s Dance – David Bowie
Shipbuilding – Elvis Costello & The Attractions

And my song of shame for 1983 is Never Gonna Let You Go by Sergio Mendes
No wonder why people hate the music of the 80s <shudder>.
Nevertheless, you probably have a favorite song or two from 1983. Let me know in the comments.
