This was really challenging. I hadn't realised just how many songs from 1982 I know and like. 1. Old And Wise - The Alan Parsons Project @Willie Oleson A new discovery for me. This is so beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for sharing it, Willie. 2. Starmaker - The Kids from “Fame” @Barbara Fan A firm favourite of mine since the first time I heard it. Happy memories of singing along as I played the album ad infinitum. Somehow it never got old. We should have a singalong sometime BF. 3. Abracadabra - Steve Miller Band @Emelee One of those songs that transports me back to 1982 and the radio in my grandparents' kitchen on a Saturday morning. Happy memories - thanks Emelee. 4. I Won’t Let You Down - Ph.D @Long Lashes I didn't recognise the name of the group and thought this was going to be new. As it turns out, it's another that takes me back in time. I haven't heard this one in forever. It's been too long! Thanks for bringing it back, LL. 5. Lies - Thompson Twins @Ome 1982 was such a great year for chart music. I found myself singing along to this one without even realising, so in it goes. An excellent choice, Ome. 6. Head Over Heels - ABBA @Toni Along with most songs from their final album, this song passed me by until the ABBA Gold/More ABBA Gold compilations of the early Nineties. And I didn't even buy those until 1997. Fortunately, The Visitors tracks made a huge impact and have been favourites ever since. And Head Over Heels is a cracker. It's the early ABBA sensibilities with late ABBA production values: a winning combination. Bravo, Toni. 7. I Can Make You Feel Good - Shalamar @Angela Channing Another one that passed me by until the late Nineties when Kavana's cover brought it to my attention. I've grown to love the original version so much it was very nearly in my nominations. Thanks for nominating it, Angela, so I get to vote Shalamar. 8. Get Down On It - Kool & The Gang @jessie This takes me right back too. I swear I can remember this being sung in class a few years later. Probably with some crude lyrics substituted for the original. A corker of a song. Thanks, Jessie. 9. Menergy - Patrick Cowley @Willie Oleson Definitely the best title of all the nominated songs. And a great sound too. Another of Willie's choices that's expanded my musical knowledge as I hadn't heard this one before. 10. Memory - Barbra Streisand @Toni A great version. The only one that I think can almost touch Elaine Paige's version. A perfect fit for Babs, and another perfect choice from Toni. As for who chose it: @Ome - are you still in the running? If so, I point my finger in your direction.
