American Top 40 PastBlast: 7/30/83

One of the great kiss-off songs of the 80s. Lots of good venom here! This was Briley’s only American hit.

Several years ago I assembled the tunes on this countdown into a playlist; a primary reason was for some of the songs present at the bottom: this one (it’s at its peak of #36), “Slipping Away” by Dave Edmunds (its only week on, at #39), and “Pieces of Ice” by Diana Ross. Lots of fun stuff towards the top, too. 83 is turning out to be one of my favorite years for popular music as I look back.
