Excited to get a Versatile Fleece Vest in 1983.

The year 1983 saw both the official beginning of the Internet[1] and the first mobile cellular telephone call. I was already a master of the Speak and Spell and was taking computer classes on a Mac, so technology grew up with me, I suppose.

Music in 1983 was all about Michael Jackson, The Eurythmics, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, The Police, and Duran Duran. Perhaps the biggest year for post-punk. Here are a few songs from the year because it’s one of my favorites. And let us not forget, it was the release of R.E.M.’s Murmur, which is stil amazing.
