Re: Final 1980s Poll: Instructions and Links

I feel a bit like the teacher who had bad reputation for assigning too much homework!

I am more than happy if people want to submit lists based on just the albums/songs they know. I’m not expecting anyone to listen to all of the albums and songs, or so any additional listening if they don’t want to.

I have a preference for the 2010s. Part of it is for selfish reasons, as parenthood meant that I missed out on a lot and I'd like to discover stuff sooner than 2023. I suppose if we are going to do a 2010s poll, it might be a bit superfluous, but my vote is still for the 2010s.

In additional to the great company, I especially enjoyed the bright yellow buses despite the fact that each one we took seemed to "freiner brutalement". https://www.tourisme-sete.com/medias/images/prestataires/multit...
