Favorite Songs of 1984


The project continues with my favorite songs of 1984.  Read the first post for the detail on this project.

I sense the quality of music is dropping into the mid-80s trough.  Looking at lists of songs from 1984, I can make a top ten list of songs of shame, and not even ones that are still guilty pleasures.  But there’s still enough good stuff left to make an interesting top ten favorites list as well.

Free Nelson Mandela – The Special A.K.A

Glory Days – Bruce Springsteen

How Soon Is Now? – The Smiths

Jam On It – Newcleus

Let’s Go Crazy – Prince and the Revolution

[Seek this song out on your own, but with caution as Prince does not like sharing on the internet]

The Milkman of Human Kindness – Billy Bragg

People Are People – Depeche Mode

Run Run Away – Slade

Skankin’ To The Beat – Fishbone

Stick ‘Em – Fat Boys

And my song of shame for 1984 is: Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer – Elmo & Patsy
