Playlist: Where I was In… 1989?

So Tuesday morning or sometime at least! It’s test run for later but more about that later. I’m going to post up the year just before the 90’s. Finding something from everything in just thirty tracks and narrowing it was a little tricky, you know? A lot was going on and I could easy add to this year of 1989 and will do later but it’s a great start and I’m please with my picks, I do love all these tracks too, no joke! It seem one really knew what to do for the close of the 80’s and the then coming decade.

The opening songs are Aussie yet again, please do give them a go if you haven’t before? I double dare even triple dare you to listen to track number five, all almost sixty minutes of Sex by The Necks! I’ve mixed it up with a lot of stuff I remember and you get some punk, pop, rap, metal, industrial, rock, even John Lee blues with a Latin feel thanks to Carlos Santana which is my most fave song he’s played on ever, that’s who’s playing the guitar. Off course more indie rock too but maybe, this is more mainstream than some of the other lists I’ve made?

So I’ve auto set today’s post as test run for later in the week because I’m going away but lucky everyone who reads, looks, listens to my blog I’ve got some posts coming while I’m away! It should pop-up Tuesday morning around 8:30 AM my time but could be later or not at all if I fuck it all up! Enjoy!
