Playlist: Where I Was In… 1988?

Back to the late eighty’s for Monday morning blog post playlist! So got to ask? Are you or is everyone still enjoying these yearly music list still? Or it all getting too boring now? I am bounding around like a yo-yo or tennis ball just too hopefully keep things interesting? What years have I done? 1995, 1985, 2000, 1971, 1994, 1984,  1974, 1999, 1970, 2001, 1989, 1993, 1992, 1975 well, so far!

god forbid, I remember this was Australia’s Bicentenary year which was a very big deal here or you could say it’s been 200 years for white men too fuck it all up! Anyway I’ll just talk about the music and not the history, OK? But do you need a run down or not? Ask any questions? So keeping the intro short!
