(Cuz it’s my list)
My wonderful wife tells me that I have a lot of 80’s records, she’s right.
The Cure – Staring at the Sea/Standing on a Beach: Whatever you call it, this compilation puts the black eyeliner on my eyelids. Great stuff.
Something Wild – Movie Soundtrack: David Byrne/Oingo Boingo/Fine Young Cannibals/UB40/Jimmy Cliff etc. etc.
The Go-Go’s – Beauty and the Beat: They’re definitely a real band and they definitely rock!
Pixies – Doolittle: The more you play this record, the more you’ll find something new to love about it. Debaser would be a great song for a closer to exit the bullpen and walk to the pitcher’s mound.
The Police – Synchronicity: I probably could’ve picked any album in their catalog(they’re all great) I picked this one because I’m the King of Pain.
Pretenders – Pretenders: Probably one of the greatest debut albums in rock ’n roll history.
David Bowie – Let’s Dance: It’s David Bowie and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Hell Yes!!!
Prince – Purple Rain: Just ask Wally$ how great this album is.
The Replacements – Pleased to Meet Me: “Ashtray floors, dirty clothes, and filthy jokes.” Paul Westerberg is a lyrical genius.
Midnight Oil – Diesel and Dust: It is arguably one of the greatest albums to come out of Australia. Shout out to @Aussiesoxfan
Bonus Cyndi Lauper – She’s So Unusual: you know that you know every word to a lot of these songs, it’s a great album.
next up, Jack’s hodgepodge!
