The Eighties begin.  It’s the decade where my childhood memories of music come into clear focus.  A lot of people say that there was no good music in the Eighties, but I’ve got 100 songs coming up that will prove them wrong.

Academy Fight Song – Mission Of Burma

Another Nail In My Heart – Squeeze

Do Nothing –  The Specials

Hungry Heart – Bruce Springsteen

I Will Follow – U2

Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division

Mirror In The Bathroom – The English Beat

Once in a Lifetime – Talking Heads

Three Minute Hero – The Selecter

What I Like About You – The Romantics

And my song of shame for 1980 is Funky Town by Lipps Inc.
