Below, I mentioned Pitchfork’s list of best songs from the 1960s. And now I find that Treblezine has a list of best songs EVER of the 1980s.
Too many Smiths songs for my taste, and no mention of ABC’s “the Look of Love”? For shame! But they do include Translator’s “Everywhere That I’m Not” and Billy Bragg’s “A New England” (ever hear my version?)
