    Eighties Albums

    Here's a list of albums from that decade we all know and love; they're from a list of top / best albums. 

    Each group of two represents a year; all years from 1980 through 1989 are represented.

    Goal:   Put them in order / assign a year to each grouping.    

    NOTE: I don't think this is a breeze (some of you may); either way, good luck.  

     

    Let Love Rule - Lenny Kravitz
    ... But Seriously - Phil Collins

    Combat Rock - the Clash
    Avalon - Roxy Music

    Songs From the Big Chair - Tears for Fears
    No Jacket Requred - Phil Collins

    The Game - Queen
    Zenyatta Mondatta - the Police

    Make It Big - Wham!
    Purple Rain - Prince and the Revolution

    The Joshua Tree - U2
    Bad - Michael Jackson

    Duran Duran - Duran Duran
    Kim Wilde - Kim Wilde

    Let's Dance - David Bowie
    An Innocent Man - Billy Joel

    Different Light - The Bangles
    Graceland - Paul Simon

    Temple of Low Men - Crowded House

    Strictly top of my head...

    1980 - Queen/Police

    1981 - Kravitz/Collins

    1982 - Duran/Wilde

    1983 - Bowie/Joel

    1984 - Wham/Prince

    1985 - TFF/Collins

    1986 - Bangles/Simon

    1987 - U2/Jackson

    1988 - Clash/Roxy

    1989 - House/U2

    At least one of these is way off (I think)

    Not too many takers, but you three are pretty good at this.   :)     

    Either that, or others gave up b/c Matty seemed to nail the entire list.    Nice going, Matty. :)

    I love looking at eighties albums, second only to seventies (as much as I love the nineties, it's just not as much fun).
