Playlist: Where I Was In… 1987?

It’s back to the eighty’s today for my yearly playlists! It’s finishing off a little before the mid to late 80’s with this post too, you know?

The years 1984, 1985 are 50 track playlists now. 1986 was posted just a few days ago, 1987 is what you are looking at right and I almost forgot that myself. Both the years 1988, 1989 are now 50 tracks but I’ve not updated the blog post list yet, come-on what the bloody hell have you been doing?

Yet again like 1986, well almost it’s all Aussie’s songs but at the tail end Kiwi, German, Irish and Swiss have slip into my 30 fave tracks! Both 86 and 87 playlists will be updated to 50 at some point, you know? I stop flag counting at some point as well but the Poms and Yanks are coming soon!

  1. Another nice list William.
    1987 was my first full year outside Australia, so I don’t recognise everything, but I’m still fond of the songs by The Widdershins, The Triffids, the GOBs, Ed Keupper and of course U2 and Midnight Oil from their respective best albums (IMHO).
