Italo Disco Songs from 1984 Part 1

1984 is possibly the year with the most Italo Disco releases of any year.

According to Discogs.com, there were over 3,200 Italo-Disco records released in 1984. This includes different variations in different countries, so actual individual releases is probably somewhere around 500 or 600 releases.

In 1985, there were over 3,700 Italo-Disco records released, however, if you take into account that some of those are re-releases from the years prior, it seems like 1984 may have seen the highest production of Italo Disco in history.
