Here is the first of my "all 80's music doesn't suck" not in any particular order. Just one song from each record but you should check out each complete record.

Skafish - Skafish

This is the ultimate bully song from the punk era. I can't believe it's still available in ewetuba never mind being reissued.

The Smiths - Hatful of Hollow

This is NOT the album version but it is Johnny Marr's song anyway. And besides Morissey is a twat no matter how great this record is

Lloyd Cole and the Commotions - Easy Pieces

This is unprecedented in this list... back to back of the same artist. Lloyd still stands out from the era. Such a great artist.

@bufordk @SamiOh โ€” good stuff! :D

Curious to see if The Fixx makes it on this list. ๐Ÿ‘€

@bufordk @SamiOh โ€” well, you know, one thing leads to another. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

@bufordk @SamiOh This list is so good! Blasters and Beat Farmers were local-ish so fun filled small venue shows were abundant.

@bufordk @SamiOh Mine was a 1st batch US pressing. I think it may have been too expensive to dribble the marbling color thru it and made later pressings plain white.

@bufordk @SamiOh I saw them live back in '89 in Chicago. What a great live band (even while Westerberg was almost fall down drunk). Probably ranks in my top 5 bands I've seen live
