Why 1984 was my favourite year in music

As a 13-ear-old boy back in 1984 my parents were a bit worried about me. Firstly I sucked at playing rugby, I weren't interested in girl and that I spend all my pocket money on buying 7 singles, 12" singles and vinyl records (yes, that was still years before CDs were released in South Africa. Besides being labelled the 'odd one out' in school, my little universe were populated my Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson, Depeche Mode, Ella Mental, Juluka and many more. Those were the most exciting times in my musical upbringing. Here I'm sharing some of my favourite songs from 1984.

Juluka - Kilimanjaro

Depeche Mode - People Are People

Madonna - Into The Groove

Michael Jackson - Thriller

Prince -Let's Go Crazy
