    33 years ago this week.

    Nice diverse chart. I own 16 of these. Many accumulated over the years.

    How many do you like and/or own?

    Pick as many as you like.

    I own three: Born In The U.S.A., She's So Unusual and Purple Rain. I used to own Centerfield also, when I collected vinyl.

    I remember this lot because it was the early years of CDs and many were in the new release lists.

    If you love pop and the 80s, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better week than this.

    And we had to wait for the CDs to come out. Often many weeks after the LPs and cassettes. If at all!

    Unreal a plethora of multi million selling albums on this chart some carried from the pop explosion of 1984.

    Great list. I have most of these, some on vinyl, some on CD. Picked up a Japan for US of Pointer Sisters' Break Out a few weeks ago. Had forgotten what a good album it is.

  20. Could this list be any more ‘80s? No, none more ‘80s.

    Definitely a great period for pop music. Some of my favorites on the Top 200 at the time: REM, The Smith’s, U2, Los Lobos, Richard Thompson are a little further down the list

    Decent chart. My faves are:

    REO Speedwagon - Wheels Are Turnin'
    Foreigner - Agent Provocateur
    Bryan Adams - Reckless
    Chicago - 17
    Lionel Richie - can't Slow Down

    Normally, I'd pick Don Henley - I think he's usually top notch - but outside a few tracks, Building The Perfect Beast is the closest he ever came to ordinary.

    Yeah, that album to me defined the 80's. If you did a top 10 of 80's defining albums you could probably pull at least 1/2 of them from this chart.
