Grauzone's Eisbär and Anne Clark's Sleeper in Metropolis?





I decided to go listen to my CDR with 80s mp3s, and these were shortly after another. OK, so Grauzone's track is from '81 and Anne Clark's from '84 - whatever. What can sum 1982/1983 up better than those?

i love sites that give lists of the top songs for various years, sometimes i know quite a few (rarely like, but know) and other years it's like, was i in a coma, i don't remember any of those tunes, this happens more as the 80's move towards the 90's and i stopped listening to most music on the radio, and started going through other avenues to find music i liked (indie record stores, non mainstream press, college or university radio, and eventually the net)
