Signals From Mars – Episode 329 – 1984

Signals From Mars Episode 329 1984


During this episode of Signals From Mars, my Patrons join me to discuss their favorite albums of 1984.

The way it works is they submit a list of 10 albums. Each album is assigned a set of points. Number one gets 10 points, number two gets 9 points all the way down to their number ten which receives 1 point. I sum all of the points up and whichever album comes out with the most points ends up as number one.

They also picked a track to represent each album. We also created an Ultimate 1984 Playlist based on their selections.

Did your favorite make the list? Should it have ranked higher? What’s that album even doing on the list?



Join us live for Signals From Mars. Ask questions, talk to others, and partake!

Signals From Mars Trivia Tuesday on Twitch is a weekly live show where I throw out a bunch of hard rock and metal trivia questions to the audience.

Not only do you need to know the correct answer, but you also need to be the quickest to answer correctly. The faster you answer, the more points you obtain. But answer wrong, and you’ll lose points.
