TURN UP THE VOLUME Listens Back To The Year Of GEORGE ORWELL – 25 Ace Tracks From 1984

25 April 2021

1984 – The year of George Orwell‘s dystopian social science fiction novel published
in 1949. A visionary book focused on the consequences of totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of persons and behaviours within society.

Musically 1984 was a year of sonic eclecticism. Folk, punk, classic rock and pop, ska,
soul, post-punk, new wave. Turn Up The Volume‘s 1984 list has that diversity too.

And the 25 winners are…

NME‘s best 1984 albumThe Poet II by Bobby Womack

Rolling Stone‘s best 1984 albumBorn In The U.S.A by Bruce Springsteen

NME‘s best single of 1984 – ‘Love Wars’ by Womack and Womack

Rolling Stone‘s best single of 1984 – ‘When Doves Cry’ by Prince and The Revolution
