Following on from our favourite albums of the Nineties, today it’s the turn of the Eighties.
Because this is, arguably, a tough one, nobody will blame you if providing a list of ten albums is pushing it a bit and you can only think of three or four. Really.
A few things by Michael Jackson, Kate Bush, U2 and Pink Floyd – not forgetting David’s second solo release, ‘About Face’ – and that was about it, wasn’t it? I think I remember seeing some tumbleweed, too. Driven mad by electronica and trying to escape from striped leggings, probably.
Please prove me wrong by casting your vote in this poll… But I don’t think you can.
Once you’ve done that, to bring you back to better (well, you tell me) musical times, have a look at this. It’s one of the first of many ‘Live in Gdańsk’ interviews, as David begins the amusing routine of answering the same question repeatedly.
Thanks to Tom for bringing it to my attention.
Let’s see which albums you like from the Eighties, then.
