    If any of them appeared on pop idol they'd be booted out straight away. Sad state of affairs nowadays.

    4. Van Halen - 1884

     
    They were a bit more up to date than that!

    That's a pretty good list. Even the ones I wouldn't listen to are still good artists.

    Yep that a pretty impressive list and sad to see that guitar based music plays second fiddle to some real sh*t at present !

    ITT: Midlife crisis victims yearning for the 'good old days'.
     
    If you can't look further than the top 10 for music, you don't deserve to find it.
     
    Plenty of specialist support and following for genre specific stuff, you just have to be proactive, rather than expecting it to be delivered to you.
     
    All those pining for 30 years ago: How many new albums have you listened to this year? Last year?
     
    The charts just represent what teenage kids listen to. No doubt in 20 years time, they will lament the passing of the very acts you lambast.

    Out of curiosity what did the singles chart look like? Was it not full of Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet? I have to say I hate that sh*t.

    Consumers with the largest disposable income and likely to buy pop music are yong teens, particularly girls. Lots of New Romantic stuff in the charts at that time. Have to say that Duran Duran still stands up though! (Guilty pleasure or what??? )

    All the No.1's from 1983. Not a classic selection IMO, but then I was only 5 at the time so slightly before my era.

    Not a bad list. Is that the actual top 10 albums of 1983 or just your pick of the albums from 1983?
     
    1983 actually was a very good year for metal and rock, here would be my top 10:
     
    1. Sonic Youth - Confusion Is Sex
    2. Metallica - Kill 'Em All
    3. REM - Murmur
    4. Depeche Mode - Construction Time Again
    5. Philip Glass Ensemble - Koyaanisqatsi
    6. Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
    7. Pink Floyd - The Final Cut
    8. New Order - Power, Corruption & Lies
    9. Yes - 90125
    10. Talking Heads - Speaking In Tongues
     
    Lotsa good music that year

    Metallica wishes they had the top selling album of that year, doubt it was in the top 1000!

    I'd say there's 10-12 good songs there, though musical taste is highly subjective.

    Very much so. Now if someone could post the top country songs from 1983 then we'd be talking. I bet most on here wouldn't agree though.

    The only good song on that list IMO is Give It Up by KC and the Sunshine Band, what a classic!

    I'd say the majority are amazing. The Men At Work tune is a classic.
