The project continues with my favorite songs of 1979. Read the first post for the detail on this project.
I think this may be the most unlikely collection of songs I’ve brought together yet. My eclecticism is showing, but all of these are special to me in some way.
Bela Lugosi’s Dead – Bauhaus
Hammond Song – The Roches
Heart of Glass – Blondie
Logical Song – Supertramp
Lost in the Supermarket – The Clash
A Message to You, Rudy – The Specials
Oliver’s Army – Elvis Costello & The Attractions
Redemption Song – Bob Marley
Theme From New York, New York – Frank Sinatra
We Are Family – Sister Sledge
And my song of shame for 1979 is You Don’t Bring Me Flowers – Neil Diamond & Barbra Streisand
(I went through a Neil Diamond phase as a child. I was a strange youth.)

How about “Galway Bay” since that was your first time being across the sea to Ireland? Your song of shame is like fingernails on the blackboard for me — my two most annoying singers…..
Anonymous must know my Mom.
Bing Crosby’s “Galway Bay” was from 1949, a bit before my time.
