Now that I’m listening again, I can judge . . .

A wonderful post from Mark Griffin: “The Sounds of 97X WOXY, 1985.”

182 songs from ’85 – do I agree? I set myself a high bar, counting only those songs I recall as songs, not as elements of albums I recollect. Well, I only remembered 34 of the 182, and of those 34 tunes, I only “liked” 27. 1985 doesn’t reverberate as memorable to me. But I have to say, this 182-song playlist is very indie with numerous songs I don’t specifically recall but from bands I admire. Put it another way: the list contains surprisingly few top-40-crap selections. Perhaps the middle year of the 80s wasn’t so bad after all.
