Top Songs of 1982

1982 was a transition year for modern popular music. Radio stations were caught between the disco era and a new wave of international synthesizer-based artists. The hard rock (hair metal) era had not yet begun, but several rock songs dented the charts such as our #1 song of 1982: "I Love Rock & Roll" by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. Several new wave bands made the top 10 such as The Human League and Soft Cell. We've updated our 1982 chart after hundreds more votes, but the 80s polls are always going - we are always adding more of them.
