Top 10 Music Movies Ranked 1981 You Must Watch

Unwrapped’s Offical 10 Best Music Movies of 1981 list is finally here (I know it’s been too long). At Unwrapped, we have had the entire team, which part of the employment criteria is a love of movies, make a list of  The 10 Best Music Movies of 1981. We then put our heads together for over six months and have come up with what I believe are the most significant, most watchable  Music Movies of 1981. Ultimately this is my opinion, and I am open to feedback; however, I am pretty sure any true movie fan will agree with me. (Yes, that’s designed to irritate you, so you comment.)
