Playlist: Where I Was In… 1983?

So I might as well continue my yearly playlists for my Friday morning blog post. After giving these post a break for a week or two or more? I’m on a roll now so I might as well keep going and make it three in one week. The 80’s I done are everything after this year but nothing before it, if you need a recap? I’ve being going only 30 songs as a starting point but 1989, 1988, 1985 and 1984 are all 50 songs now, well so is 1986 and 1987 but I’ve not updated the list on the post!

Right, the countdown to my birth year is on? I have said this before on my blog but because I’m so bad at math I fuck it up all the time. What differences does it make anyway? If you don’t know it yet and you follow this madness called a blog you can figure it out by the ones I haven’t done yet! Because I’m going to be counting the years backwards to it from now on, OK?
