Party Like It’s 1984 With Halt and Catch Fire‘s Latest Spotify Playlist

halt-and-catch-fire-episode-110-spotify-1984-200x2001983 proved to be an eventful year for the team at Cardiff Electric, whose venture into the PC market has been fraught with double-crosses, romantic trysts, and hiccups of both the technical and legal variety. Now, 1984 is approaching and the team is poised to unleash their Giant onto the market (the same year that Apple will unveil its game-changing Macintosh). To celebrate such a seminal year in the history of personal computers, Halt and Catch Fire‘s music supervisor Thomas Golubić and his team at SuperMusicVision have created a new Spotify playlist highlighting the pop hits of 1984. While Cardiff’s future may be uncertain, 1984’s place in music history is secure thanks to artists like U2, Depeche Mode, and David Bowie. Check it out below, and get ready to party like it’s 1984 all over again.
