    on a more serious note, I can't believe I didn't mention this one...



    and there's an album I should have mentioned - The Moody Blues' Long Distance Voyager

    I wore this bitch completely out back in the day

    Eh.

    My musical tastes are certainly not edgy, never have been. But you like me in spite of it.

    maybe it's my built in misogyny, but chicks get a pass on music.

    so I was scrolling through the Wiki pages for the year-end Billboard top 100 charts and I find that over the last 25 years, there are roughly 9-10 songs on each list I can even remember, and around half of those I actually like.

    I'm assuming that for the 20 years previous to that I'll remember almost all of them and like, at least to a reasonable degree, over half of them. I may or may not make an obsessive post at some point in the future about my take on each year's list for the 80's
