  2. I can't quantify how many times I listened to this song as a teenager. And I still remember de lyrics…

  3. J avais 19. Je m en souviens comme si c'était hier. Belles années que j ai pas oubliées.

  4. Another home run some random guy.

  5. Boy, going back 40 years brings back so many memories associated with these great songs. Mostly I now realize how dumb, immature and pimply I used to be.🤣

  6. This is awesome. Also…INXS "The One Thing" 😉

  7. Tell me that you're European without say "i'm european":
    To put THIS song at the first, having another most known songs

  8. Thanks for putting these great lists together! I wonder if you might already have one which covers the best year of the 80’s in terms of biggest hits? The 80’s had the best hits of all decades (copied / sampled so often) but which year had the most hits of the 80’s? 82 must surely be in the mix!

  9. This was the year I graduated from high school (in May), turned 18, and my parents paid off the house we were in at the time (both in June). Good times and good memories.

  10. This look like European releases for '82 because I remember some being hits later

  11. This is AWESOME!!! I was born in 1982 so it’s neat to see what songs I know from my birth year.

  12. Per una ricerca delle song è perfetto!!

  13. Qualidade e quantidade! Vivi essa época ! Uma explosão de músicas maravilhosas!!!

  14. Where was "Save You Love" by Renee and Renato?

  15. I love the 80’s generation! I’m making my own 80’s playlist from ‘80-‘89 and I’m at 700 hundred videos and I’m trying to put them in order by Alphabetical Order. Been having problems with the list it’s moving by itself when moving the videos, wondering if you been having this problems also. I love your list on how you put them in sections.

  16. Glad to see some fleetwood mac appreciation ✨
