Playlist: Where I Was In… 1982?

Right, I think I’m going to run out of thinks to say about the bloody 80’s because I don’t really remember that as a little kid, maybe just bits and pieces. Just to be clear this is what I’ve listen too since I grow-up and discovering my own taste in music but a few mainstream hits are included which I still dig. I was a very big Billy Idol fan as a little kid but these days now I love the Rowland S. Howard’s cover of that song more!

It’s worth or not worth saying, Molly and Countdown show up here today in my list. My own little opinion is one man shouldn’t never have had some much influences over the local music here in Oz then. He had the power to make or break a band back then, you know?
