The Top Billboard Hits on November 10th, 1982: A Look Back

Ah, the 80s. A time of big hair, neon colors, and music that was so catchy, it’s still stuck in our heads today. Let’s take a trip down memory lane to November 10th, 1982, a day that was particularly noteworthy in the music world.

On this day, the Billboard charts were dominated by a mix of pop, rock, and soul that perfectly encapsulated the eclectic spirit of the 80s. At the top of the charts was none other than the “King of Pop” himself, Michael Jackson, with his iconic hit “Thriller.” This song was so popular, it was practically a national anthem. You couldn’t walk into a grocery store, a dentist’s office, or even an elevator without hearing that infectious beat. And let’s not forget the music video – a cinematic masterpiece that had us all practicing our zombie dance moves in front of the mirror.

But it wasn’t all about MJ. The second spot on the charts was held by the Australian rock band Men at Work with their quirky tune “Down Under.” This song was as catchy as a kangaroo with a boomerang, and it had us all dreaming of Vegemite sandwiches and men chundering. Whatever that means.

Meanwhile, the third spot was occupied by the sultry sounds of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing.” This song was so smooth, it could make a porcupine feel like a silk pillow. It was the perfect soundtrack for those romantic candlelit dinners, or for when you just wanted to groove around your living room in your underwear. Not that I’m speaking from personal experience, of course.

And who could forget the fourth spot, held by the one and only Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes with “Up Where We Belong.” This song was so uplifting, it could make a lead balloon feel like a helium one. It was the kind of song that made you want to stand on a mountain top and belt out the lyrics at the top of your lungs. Again, not that I’m speaking from personal experience.

Rounding out the top five was the unforgettable “Truly” by Lionel Richie. This song was so sweet, it could give a sugar cube a toothache. It was the kind of song that made you want to slow dance with your high school sweetheart at the prom, even if you were actually just slow dancing with your mop in your kitchen. Yet again, not that I’m speaking from personal experience.

So there you have it, folks. The top Billboard hits on November 10th, 1982. A day when the music was as diverse and vibrant as the decade itself. A day when we were all united by our love for catchy tunes and questionable fashion choices. A day that will forever be remembered as a golden era in music history. And if you’ll excuse me, I have some dancing to do. With my mop, of course.
