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.)
The project continues with my favorite songs of 1977. Read the first post for the detail on this project.
I’m now getting to the point where I’m having to make tough choices about what makes the top ten instead of trying to find songs to pad out the list. 1977-82 is a period of great music making, in my opinion.
Action Time Vision – ATV
Another Girl, Another Planet – The Only Ones
Chinese Rocks – Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers
Don’t Worry About The Government – Talking Heads
(Get A) Grip (On Yourself) – Stranglers
Lust For Life – Iggy Pop
One Love/People Get Ready – Bob Marley
Sheena Is A Punk Rocker – The Ramones
Solsbury Hill – Peter Gabriel
Turn the World Around – Harry Belafonte
And my song of shame for 1977 is Jet Airliner by Steve Miller Band
