• Was 1983 the Greatest Year in Music History?

    Here’s a list of just some of the great albums that were released in 1983. These are so good and so well-known, that I bet music fans of my generation don’t need me to put the artist’s name next to each one. How amazing is that? All 42 of those albums came out in 1983. …
