Don't. There's other ways to get kicks that don't give you cancer.

OK. Three votes and I'll stick with coffee and sobriety. :)

I was still dwelling on whether as Switch says in the DDP team submitted that 1982 was indeed the best year for pop. I still say 1984. Anyway, in a totally unscientific manner and given I now have completed lists for top 30 hits in the UK charts for 1982, 1983 and 1984 (I still have my 1981 list too if you'd like that list too), I thought I'd have a go at completing a representative chart of the year.

 

Now this isn't by sales, that would be too easy. What I have done here is pick acts who have at least one living member today. Then I have chosen that act's highest charting position in that year. So if an act's best position was #30, it appears at #30 in the list and so on.

 

There obviously has been some competition and debate as to the higher positions where acts are more likely to be tied, so in that case, I've gone with my choice. If anything, it gives you a playlist of that year but it's a fair representative sample of each year which doesn't depend on sales only.

 

So they follow in the next post. Enjoy listening to anything you haven't heard before....

Ah, Kim Wilde...

 

Interesting to see Maiden had a top ten hit other than Bring your daughter to the fucking slaughter. Of course, it'd have to be RttH.

I do listen to those albums.

More or less.  I have an embarrassing number of late 70s/early 80s compilations.
