I'm working on compiling all or most of those songs into a YouTube playlist, but lemme say that, in my admittedly somewhat uneducated opinion, 1984 was a hell of a year* for new music as well.
"Against All Odds" by Phil Collins, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper, "God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood, "Hello" by Lionel Richie, "I Want to Know What Love is" by Foreigner, "Like a Virgin" by Madonna, "Shout" by Tears for Fears, "Smooth Operator" by Sade, "Sunglasses at Night" by Corey Hart, "Thriller" by Michael Jackson, "What's Love Got to Do With It?" by Tina Turner, "When Doves Cry" by Prince... some damn good stuff there.
Not to mention Chicago 17,
which debuted both "Hard Habit to Break" and "You're the Inspiration".
*-- of course 1984 also featured the death of Marvin Gaye, the breakup of The Police, the alien abduction of Michael Jackson (Robot Chicken reference) and the births of Avril Lavigne, Ashlee Simpson and Kelly Osborne, so I'm not saying it was all
good for the music industry. And yes, I did
have Wikipedia help on this one.(edited by ekedolphin on 4.8.07 0229)

|This is the reason right here I need to avoid the mainstream radio. Are any of these cool songs from these cool bands going through my radio stations? Am I getting the Smithereens, Amy Winehouse, or They Might Be Giants? Nope! All I get on my radio is total junk like Sean Kingston, The Killers (a good band with a BAD sophomore album), Nickelback, Fergie, and Will.i.am (and if you haven't heard THAT insipid song yet, you will. Start coping with the fact that THIS will be the new club anthem). And on an aside, the top three slots for Worst Song of the Year might all come from various Black Eyed Peas.|
I really should start listening to Indie 103.1 FM.

|Not sure where you're getting your info on the new U2 album, but it isn't expected until 2008 at the earliest.
