Wednesday, June 11, 2003 VH1 lists its Top 100 Songs of the past 25 years, and not surprisingly, only two or three would be on my play-list from the same period (which, of course, contains few entries post-dating 1987.) Started working on a list in the car this morning, and may post something in the near future. Nominations accepted.
For inspiration, listen to some of the RAMs at this music appreciation page that offers a better sampling of the zeitgeist (IMHO) than the MTV types. Me, I've had "Blitzkrieg Bop" in my head since hearing it the other day on the new AT&T wireless commercial. Madison Avenue embraces the Ramones: Who would have thought it?
