During my vacation I was cleaning around the house and stumbled across some old music playlists from the early part of the 80s. Some of them were year end countdown lists.

I thought since we're coming up on a brand new year that it might be fun to take a look back at the Top 40 songs that were the biggest hits of 1983.

WOW! 30 Years ago. Hard to believe it's been that long. Where has the time gone?

Along with these songs, here are a few other things that are celebrating their 'Pearl Anniversary.'
