Billboard Dance Chart for Jan. 15, 1983: Get Up and Do Your Thing

Looking at the past through rose-colored glasses might not always be fair. 

But there's no doubt that popular music -- where a pre-Top 40-fame Thompson Twins, Patrick Cowley, Sylvester, Weather Girls and an unknown chick from Detroit co-mingled with the likes of Prince, Marvin Gaye, Grace Jones and Hall & Oates -- used to be insanely good. 

BTW: I didn't even mention Indeep's "Last Night a D.J. Saved My Life," which may just be the best song the week. That might explain why it's been sampled a million times since!
