Why do I have this vision, while reading this thread, of someone putting on a clear raincoat, picking up an axe and dancing around behind me?

because every single one of the acts mentioned so far pales in comparison to the greatness that is Huey Lewis and the News.

Certainly an interesting take, fb.

I was just browsing my "70s" playlist in iTunes (572 songs) hoping to come up with a defining twenty songs...as that is the decade during which I came of age. I'm amazed at the diversity. ABBA to Yes, with Leon Russell, the Allman Bros., Zeppelin et al thrown in for good measure.

I can't begin to "define" the 70s with twenty songs. I'll leave that to greater (and less drug-addled) minds than mine.

A slightly different take on the 80s:

"Radio Free Europe" REM (1981)
"That's When I Reach for My Revolver" Mission of Burma (1981)
"The KKK Took my Baby Away" The Ramones (1981)
"Moon Over Marin" Dead Kennedys (1982)
"Blister in the Sun" Violent Femmes (1983)
"Never Understand" The Jesus and Mary Chain (1985)
"Bastards of Young" The Replacements (1985)
"Here it is Tomorrow" Game Theory (1985)
"Looking for Lewis and Clark" The Long Ryders (1985)
"Shop it Around" Jason and the Scorchers (1985)
"Places That Are Gone" Tommy Keene (1986)
"Fourth of July" X (1987)
"Debaser" The Pixies (1989)

Another Jason and the Scorchers fan! I used to be really in to them. Another great '80s college band was the Bodeans. Remember them?

Man talk about my illusions being shattered. D. Rube is into Abba and Tokyo Slim is into Night Ranger and Driztt is into Air Supply. Jeez, might as well tell me there is no Santa Claus.

Hehe my music is pretty varied so that's not particularly significant. Looking at my current playlist it has stuff from Justin Timberlake, Air Supply, Nine Inch Nails, Alexander Scriabin, The Game, The Scorpions, and Kelly Clarkson.

Hey.....who said I was into Abba? I know some secrets about you, too, Stu, so let's just keep things civil here, huh?
