Favorite Songs of 1983


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

Sunday Bloody Sunday – U2

Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) – Eurythmics

White Lines – Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five

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.
