When talking about the chronological history of music and its importance, more often than not a few years, in particular, will come up. Though all music history and the timeline overall are extremely important there are a few periods that absolutely stand out and outshine the rest.

1984 is one of those years.

You may be thinking to yourself, "well yeah, but there are a ton of different times in music how can you just focus on one in particular?" Well, the short answer is, we absolutely agree, but in order to prevent us from joining the likes of Joe Rogan and hoping you'll listen to 3-hour episodes of our podcast, we have to pick and choose to focus on certain things. Furthermore, more often than not topics like these that we focus on are brought to us by you, the listener (which is the case here).

With that being said, 1984 was such a monster year in music that we've had to break this episode into two parts, similar to how we handled our discussion about 1991. So this week we're diving headfirst into Part 1 and will continue trucking along into Part 2 next week.

To some of you, 1984 might have been the year you graduated high school, the year you were born, or the year you trusted that fart and shouldn't have. To others, this is one of the most powerhouse years that the music industry has had to offer us, and with good reason. Instead of spoiling this entire episode by listing off what we talked about, how about you just go listen so that I can keep my internship.

It's season 5, episode 8 of Kurt Loder's cat sitter's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!
