  1. Sorry I’m late…been a busy week. I remember some of the names but that is it…after listening to a few I know why. I was heavily into Henley around this time and that album.

    • I am so happy next week I will be back in 1980.. I didn’t realize how turned off I was back then by pop music. Most of these songs I don’t recall.

    • For good reason you were turned off. Yea the 80s didn’t become the 80s until around 82 to me…I’ve gone back and forth with friends on the year…when it shook off the 70s for good.

    • I would say for me it was around 1985 when the tide turned. There was still a lot of good stuff in 1984-85 then -not so much and it got worse with each year.
