I used to be disgusted, now I just try to be amused
My Bloody Valentine, "What You Want"
Violent Femmes, "I Held Her in My Arms"
Elvis Costello, "Red Shoes"
The Waterboys, "The Whole of the Moon"
Lone Justice, "After the Flood"
Peter Gabriel, "Games Without Frontiers"
Mirah, "Don't Die in Me"
T'Pau, "Heart and Soul"
Tom Waits, "I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love With You"
If you're keeping score, that's eight songs from the '80s, one from the '90s, and only one from this century. I can offer no defense for the inclusion of that T'Pau track, and especially not for its one-note drum machine. I can't even point back to some relationship from 1987 that might provide a nostalgic halo of positive association to justify my liking this song.
