The year in music – 1984 – was voted on by the WXPN listeners as one of the greatest years in music, and for good reason. There were many notable releases from big stars as well indie artists, which spoke to the tension between big corporate rock and the indies that were starting to gain popularity.
From Bruce Springsteen’s Born In The U.S.A.,Purple Rain by Prince, and Let It Be by The Replacements, to Run D.M.C.’s self-titled debut, The Unforgettable Fire by U2, and Like A Virgin by Madonna, 1984 is being featured all day long today on WXPN for #tbtXPN. Below, watch ten of our favorite videos from 1984.
