Top 5 One Hit Wonders Of 1983

I thought about making this a top 10 because there were a bunch of really good one hit wonders in 1983, but I decided to stay with the top 5 theme that I started with 1982. Eventually I'll get back to 1980 and 1981.

1) Der Kommissar - After The Fire (Man, I love this song. Falco originally did this, but After The Fire's version just kills it in my opinion.)

2) She Blinded Me With Science - Thomas Dolby (If you've never yelled "SCIENCE" before you didn't grow up in the 80's. I'm pretty sure that at least 98% of the people who hear this song immediately think of the old professor in the video.)

3) In A Big Country - Big Country (When this song first hit the radio I didn't really care for it. It wasn't untill years later that I loved it. Very strange, but that happens to me often. This song reminds me of going to the hospital to see my dad when he was on his death bed because it was on the radio a lot during that time. It's one of many many songs that remind me of that time period.)

4) Major Tom - Peter Schilling (This was Peter's answer to David Bowie's Space Odyssey. I like it way more than Space Odyssey though. It's a great song to sing along to. The chorus is anyway.)

5) Puttin' On The Ritz - Taco (Such an oddball song, but really cool. It's even kinda eerie in a way.

Anyone trying to look like Metal Trooper is so not Supa Dupa! LOL

I never noticed the resemblance untill you mentioned it, but yeah they could be long lost brothers.

3 and 4 were ok, the others were not to my liking at all.

Big Country and Major Tom, yes.

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
