Porn for BYH

    On the road home today, I was listening to Sirius/XM's MTV veejayed version of AT40. Apparently, Casey Kasem wanted too much money or something from the bastards at Sirius. It's no Casey, but it's passable radio fare.

    (How sad must it be to be the original MTV veejays? I think they already died and we're all reliving their hell of constantly having to relive the 80s)

    Anyway, I heard a NIGHT RANGER nugget I had completely forgotten about ... Goodbye. I forgot how much I liked that song at the time.

    Also, this countdown from '85 had a double-whammy of lyrical suck -- Burning Heart and We Built This City -- within a song or two of each other. I came really close to driving into a bridge abutment.

    No. 1? I'm not going to say other than I have to admit its one of the guiltiest of pleasures.

    1985 was the nadir of 1980s music — it also gave us Mr. Mister, REO Speedwagon, "Party All The Time," "St. Elmo's Fire," "Sussudio," and at the tail end of the year, "Say You, Say Me." Hurl-tastic.

    It had its moments, though, like the guilty pleasure "One Night In Bangkok" and the breakouts by Dire Straits, Simple Minds and Tears for Fears. I'd been a Mark Knopfler fan since middle school. And we all dug the a-ha video on Night Tracks.

    "Broken Wings" is a great song. I will fight anyone who even attempts to argue otherwise.

    But, yeah, "Take On Me" rules. Song and video.

    Disagree. I think it was the last gasp good year of the decade. Other than rap, the 1986-91 era, basically spanning my high school years, was unmitigated shit.

    I disagree now. I am a bit older. But 1986 and 1987 were NOT terribly bad musical years. Just off the top of my head, I will throw out songs like Bizarre Love Triangle, New Order, Dear God, XTC (but the whole album, Skylarking), Just Like Heaven, The Cure and Stranglelove, Depeche Mode (the most overplayed song in history, but still was damned good the first 2,000 times I heard it).
