Playlist: Slicing Up Eyeballs’ Top 100 Songs of 1982 — minus the 3 that aren’t on Spotify

To coincide with our just-posted Top 100 songs of 1982 readers poll results, we’ve created this accompanying Spotify playlist. As you can see (and hear), the playlist opens with The Jam and closes with Tom Petty, and includes everything on our list except Peter Gabriel’s “Shock the Monkey” and the Thomas Dolby songs “Europa and the Pirate Twins” and “She Blinded Me with Science.”

So here are 7 hours of classic tracks from 1982 for your streaming pleasure:




  1. Thank you very much! I got “only” 89 songs off 100, but I guess that’s because some songs on Spotify are not available in my region/territory. Terrific list, anyway!

  2. Why not play it countdown style?

  3. Very cool, thanks!

    • Dang. I just did this and sent it to Matt. I should have looked here first! Have you made Apple Music playlists for any of the other best of lists?
