Twenty Songs from 1981

Wherein More Details are available

Like 1980, mostly retreads with a couple interesting ripples. Just a reminder, that Rick Springfield first charted in 1972; I don't mind Jessie's Girl, but everything else of his makes my left eye twitch. And I can’t explain it, I Love a Rainy Night is fun to listen to.

First concert I went to was REO Speedwagon, with .38 Special opening. I slept through half the concert and have never again listened to Speedwagon. Or, .38 Special, come to think of it. I blame my friends. After high school concerts were much better when I ditched my friends and went on my own.

I miss the Kenny Rogers chicken restaurants.
