Pop music wasn't too shabby either that year...It's one of my favorite years in music..I was 11, but had
a Vic-20 at that time, not a C=64..It was the golden time for the Atari 2600 too..But of course we also
all had to worry if at any minute the Russians and Old Ronnie were gonna get us all vaporized..

1983 was also a banner year for heavy metal albums:

Kill 'em All
Bark at the Moon
Piece of Mind
Pyromania (yeah, it's not metal but it's still a great album)
Show No Mercy
Suicidal Tendencies
Shout at the Devil
Holy Diver

My neck's getting sore thinking back to those days...

The '83 NFL draft was also arguably the greatest of all time. It was the famous QB draft of course, but besides, there were 7 Hall of Famers, 15 of the 28 first rounders had at least one Pro-Bowl, 12 rounds and at least one Pro-Bowler in every round, and 4 Pro-Bowlers went undrafted.
