Four CD set. Now Yearbook presents a stellar selection of 1983's biggest and best hits... 80 huge chart hits from the year, alongside enduring and well-loved classics. 1983 saw British artists achieving unprecedented success across the world with 'Every Breath You Take' from The Police being the year's biggest seller in the U.S., and 'Karma Chameleon' from Culture Club being the top seller in the U.K. Breakthrough acts, achieving their first big hits - all here - include a staggering line-up of future superstars: U2, Eurythmics, Wham!, Paul Young, The Style Council, Marillion and Thompson Twins, to name a few. 1983 also saw a number of artists who had seen previous releases on the fringes of the chart achieve mainstream success including The Cure and Echo And The Bunnymen, and former punk and new-wave chart regulars saw renewed success including Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Stranglers, Public Image Limited, and Elvis Costello. Synth Pop continued to dominate and Howard Jones, Tears For Fears, The Human League, Heaven 17 and Simple Minds all enjoyed a hit packed year... alongside electro-dance smashes from Freeez, Malcolm McLaren, Rock Steady Crew and Laura Branigan... whilst New Order delivered a genre defining classic and a truly iconic 12" single. NOW Yearbook 1983: 80 songs that reflect the charts in the year that NOW began... and celebrates the diversity of those charts - from the huge hits that are still played on the radio today alongside lesser compiled but equally cherished tracks.
