Thursday 13

Thirteen Most Influential Bands (that I listened to in the 80s) and the songs that rocked me...

These are, of course, not all from the 80s. And they are not in any kind of order.

1.) Blondie - Rip Her To Shreds

2.) New Order - True Faith

3. Depeche Mode - Lie To Me

4.) Jane's Addiction - Jane Says

5.) The Go-Gos - Fading Fast

6.) The Cure - Lullaby

7.) The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?

8.) Danzig - Mother

9.) The Sex Pistols - Steppin' Stone

10.) Book of Love - I Touch Roses

11.) REM - Swan, Swan H

12.) Soft Cell - Tainted Love

13.) The Pixies - Where Is My Mind?

And of course, no proper 80's album is complete without that added bonus track!

14.) Violent Femmes - Add It Up Day, after, day...I will walk... and I will play... ^_^


Happy Thursday, everyone!
