Twenty songs from 1985

Wherein More Details are available

Ah, the year Sheena Easton becomes a scuzzy Prince skank. I’ve waffled on Madonna over the years. Finally concluded her early releases are decent. Like a Virgin is a witty song, but she lost me when she tried to sing in Dick Tracy. Stephen Sondheim did the music and that role should have gone to Bernadette Peters. End. Of. Discussion.

No idea who I saw in concert. Lots of local bands like the Wallets and Urban Guerillas, plus just hanging out at First Avenue or Duffys. Ended up with some seriously effed up roommates and I consider myself lucky not to have been the innocent bystander gunned down during a drug raid.

I never like Born in the USA and I've never been much of a Springsteen fan. Just throwing that out there.

I don't think you're being fair to Wham! They're not that bad. Not on par with "I'm Your Man," but still better than "Dress You Up". Show some silly 80's pop song respect, Bill!

... and no, I can't believe I just typed that.

Fair to Wham? How about this, if they were on fire I'd piss on them, which is more than I'd do for Phil Collins.

Bill, you lie! We know you'd piss on Phil Collins if he was on fire. You'd just piss gasoline.
