Today in Music news - November 26th, 1982
Ah, November 26th, 1982. A day that will live in infamy. Or, at least, a day that will live in the annals of music history. Why, you ask? Well, let me take you on a journey back to a time when shoulder pads were in, hair was big, and the music was even bigger.

First off, let’s talk about the chart-toppers. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” was released on this very day, and boy, did it make a splash. The King of Pop had already been reigning supreme with hits like “Billie Jean” and “Beat It,” but “Thriller” was the cherry on top of his musical sundae. The album would go on to become the best-selling album of all time, and the title track’s iconic music video, complete with dancing zombies, is still a Halloween staple to this day. Talk about a thriller, indeed!

But let’s not forget about the other musical gems that graced our ears on this fateful day. The Clash released their hit single “Rock the Casbah,” a song that had us all bopping our heads and tapping our feet. With its catchy tune and politically charged lyrics, it was a song that was both fun and thought-provoking. And who could resist that infectious piano riff? Not me, that’s for sure.

Meanwhile, over in the world of country music, Willie Nelson was making waves with his album “Always on My Mind.” The title track, a cover of a song originally recorded by Brenda Lee, tugged at our heartstrings and had us all reaching for the tissues. Nelson’s soulful rendition of the song earned him numerous awards, including the Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. Now that’s what I call a country classic!

And let’s not forget about the ladies. Pat Benatar was rocking the charts with her hit “Shadows of the Night.” With its powerful vocals and anthemic chorus, it was a song that made us all want to stand up and shout. And shout we did, as we sang along to Benatar’s empowering lyrics. Girl power, am I right?

But perhaps the most memorable musical moment of November 26th, 1982, was the release of Prince’s “1999.” With its futuristic sound and apocalyptic lyrics, it was a song that had us all dancing like it was, well, 1999. And even though the year 1999 has long since passed, the song remains a party anthem to this day. So let’s party like it’s 1982, shall we?

So there you have it, folks. November 26th, 1982: a day of unforgettable music hits. From pop to rock to country, it was a day that had something for everyone. And while the fashions of the ’80s may have faded, the music of that day remains as timeless as ever. So let’s raise a glass to November 26th, 1982, a day that will forever be remembered in music history. Cheers!
