Re: Albums and Songs of 1989 Poll

I'm being persuaded that it is wise to hold back on the 2010s until 2023, I feel that my 2010s lists will be rather preliminary at the end of this year, but maybe a breathing space will provide a better perspective than launching straight into year polls. Anyway, I do love the music of the 1970s.
