Class of 82' this song and awesome memories. Brings back so much!

13 Down Home Blues - Z.Z. Hill
14 Don't You Want Me - Human League

Great song released here in the U.S. in 1982. Late 81 in the U.K.
Songs 1- 10 none really from 1982. Maybe 1999 which was very late 82 more 83 though. Same with the MJ songs listed here. Cyndi Lauper is 83-84, Superfreak and Down Home Blues are 1981. The top 10 does not represent 1982 at all.
