Put your dancing shoes on and groove to #1 hits from 30 years ago. Consider this your Flashback Friday fix!
It’s kind of a surreal feeling, realizing how 30 years is indeed a lot of time, and how it’s exactly been this many years since the year 1984. ‘80s music has such a distinct sound, easily distinguishable from those that came from the decades before and after it. It’s groovy, it’s fun, and no matter how “cheesy” some might say it was, we can’t really deny how awesome it was.
For this week’s playlist, we’ve consulted the Billboard archives to check out which songs were #1 hits in 1984, and it’s amazing how it seemed to be such a good year for music. Most of the songs were hits that even the younger generation are familiar with, an equal mix of party hits and power ballads.
And so without further ado, here’s our 11-track playlist to cap off the week! (Oh, and if you’re feeling a little more nostalgic, you might also want to check out this Mental Floss list of things that celebrate their 30th birthday this year!)

Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!

Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
We have moved towards an age built on convenience. Even fashion has followed this social pattern. There is now an option to dress without premeditated effort. Roomy shirts, versatile jeans, and soft shoes conform to our ever-busy schedules. On the other hand, a vintage sensibility is about polish. The lesson from men of yore? Tailored fit makes all the difference.
