PYHOF: 1984

2014-07-11 1

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!)
