    One of the best AOTY line-ups.

    But Def Leppard’s Pyromania should have been nominated instead Billy Joel.

    Michael Jackson was only the SECOND black artist to ever win AOTY. Thriller was truly undeniable and Michael Joseph Jackson was the King of Kings. The greatest of all time…

    MJ’s sweep is still unmatched.

    1984 had phenomenal winners:

     

    aoty- thriller

    roty- beat it

    soty- every breathe you take

    bna- culture club

     

    while I do praise the work, I have not listened to thrilled in years. while we might not know if MJ assaulted those kids, it was morally wrong to have young children sleep in his bed in his mansion

     

    but eurythmics should have won BNA against culture club

    Crazy that the Michael’s songs probably split, avoiding a 9th win that night.

    1985 line-up, Album Of The Year

    The nominees were:
    Lionel Richie – Cant Slow Down (WINNER)

    Bruce Springsteen – Born in the USA


    Cyndi Lauper – She’s So Unusual


    Prince and the Revolution – Purple Rain


    Tina Turner – Private Dancer

     

    In retrospective, the 1985 AOTY looks like the clash of the titans, the winning Album was the hit-packed Diamond certified sophomore album of Lionel Richie, against the titanic albums Born in the USA, She is so Unusual and Purple Rain. BITUSA is certified x15 Platinum and Purple Rain x13 Platinum and She is so unusual x6 Platinum.  Cyndi became a pop culture phenomenon, setting new highs for female artists with all-time classic anthems Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Time After Time. Bruce was at the highest hights of his career with that album and Prince became a legend with Purple Rain. The album spent 24 consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 from August 4, 1984 to January 18, 1985, and more than 32 weeks in the top 10, becoming one of the most successful soundtracks ever.  It traded the number-one position on the chart with Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A. twice, during 1984 and 1985.

    Lionel is a legend but his win in this line up is straight booty.

    Prince obviously should’ve won. Hell even Bruce Springsteen would’ve been an OK, if not safe, choice.

    Private Dancer & She’s So Unusual are more iconic & better albums than Can’t Slow Down too.

    Probably one of the most underwhelming winners ever.

    Honey; it’s Can’t Slow Down, NOT Can’t Slow Us Down.

    The Icon Prince was robbed!

    Richie win is much underserving. Dame Tina Turner and Prince were robbed. Still, a solid line up and I love Springsteen’s album too.
