Why 1982 was the best year in UK pop music history

Because the Top 30 best-selling UK singles of the year included the following.

1. My favourite song of all time:


2. Tears for Fears' paean to mental breakdown:


3. An unbeatably wonderful slice of German electronica:


4. The fabulous Basildon bond of Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke:


5. The Jam getting deliciously malicious:

 
6. Some bloke from Wolverhampton dressed head to toe in denim:


7. Some bloke from London dressed head to toe in, well, a nightie:


8. The only number one by one of the best British bands of all time:


9. A century of haircuts, and a bit of extra love:


10. And another classic from Yazoo:



And, just for good measure, it also included these crazy pop classics:

I. A basil-flavoured song about a Monkee:


II. Seven Teutonic tears which flowed to number 1:


III. And of course, this piece of youthful musical exuberance:


So if you don't agree with me, I'm afraid you are wrong.  1982 rules!
