1984 Special at How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

1984 Special. We've done a ton of album and artist specials at HDIF, but never a year special so let's celebrate 40 years since 1984 by playing a load of songs that came out that year, alongside our usual mix of indie pop and soul. What an odyssey of riches to choose from! R.E.M., The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Go-Betweens, The Redskins, The Style Council, Husker Du, Orange Juice, Bronski Beat, Echo And The Bunnymen and loads more.

We play:

Belle & Sebastian * Dusty Springfield * The Magnetic Fields * Love * Orange Juice * The Ronettes * Ramones * The Supremes * Aztec Camera * Beach Boys * Buzzcocks * The Cure * The Temptations * Velvet Underground * Felt * The Shangri-Las * R.E.M. * Allo Darlin' * Otis Redding * The Field Mice * Dexys Midnight Runners * Camera Obscura * The Four Tops * The Go-Betweens * Pixies * Tammi Terrell * Jens Lekman * Jonathan Richman * Le Tigre * Pat Powdrill * The Sea Urchins * Sleater-Kinney * Os Mutantes * Neutral Milk Hotel * The Left Banke * The Associates * Martha Reeves & The Vandellas * Thee Oh Sees * Teenage Fanclub * The Pastels * Shop Assistants
