Publication of A Generative Theory of Tonal Music by Fred Lerdahl and Ray Jackendoff.

February 11 - The Rolling Stones concert film Let's Spend the Night Together opens in New York

Diana Ross performed in Central Park in the pouring rain

Highest point of the 1981–1985 Menuditis and Menudomania all over Latin America.

ZTT Records founded

The UK singles chart starts to use electronic terminals in selected stores to gather sales information. The old "sales diary" method will be gradually phased out over the next few years

19 August : Radio Caroline broadcasts from MV Ross Revenge with a new mast

Steve, Bob and Rich (soon to become The Rainmakers) release demos for Mercury Records

The Police's Synchronicity was their final release together before breaking up, and was enormously popular, including one of their more popular songs, "Every Breath You Take"

Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) was their breakthrough success, and included their signature tune, the title track

Mötley Crüe's Shout at the Devil was their breakthrough, and included "Looks That Kill", though they would go on to greater popular and critical success in the later part of the decade after recovering from the shock of member Vince Neil's near-fatal car accident

Nena releases 99 Luftballons and its English version, 99 Red Balloons, generating her fame in the English-speaking world

Tom Waits' Swordfishtrombones was his first album for Island Records, and the first in a series of three thematically and stylistically linked albums that established him as a critical darling and cult favorite

New Order's Power, Corruption & Lies was the second since forming from the ashes of Joy Division (after the suicide of Ian Curtis) and the first to achieve critical or popular success, as it was a stylistically innovative mix of synth vocals and dance-heavy beats. In some countries included the best-selling 12" record of all time, "Blue Monday"

Duran Duran scored hits from three separate albums in this year (Rio, the reissue of Duran Duran, and Seven and the Ragged Tiger)

Merle Haggard began a run of chart success in this year, which continued for about two years. His duet album with Willie Nelson, Pancho & Lefty, was an enormous critical and popular success and did much to revitalize the careers of both entertainers, especially with the hit title track

Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood was more popular than any blues album since the late 1960s, and did much to establish country-blues as a commercially viable genre

George Strait's Right or Wrong sold extremely well, and was a pivotal album in the development of the honky tonk revival during the rest of the decade.

Now That's What I Call Music! off the long-running compilation series in the UK

Metallica and Slayer kicked off the thrash metal era with Kill 'Em All and Show No Mercy.

R.E.M's first full-length album Murmur was one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the year.

The Carpenters' Voice of the Heart was released after Karen Carpenter's untimely death which contains material from some of her last recording sessions, as well as previously unreleased tracks from sessions over the years.

The Depeche Mode single Everything Counts achieve a great popularity and is considered the first industrial Pop music.
