A Failed Attempt at Picking Six Songs

So, my friend lizardprincess complains that she can't do the six-song meme because she's got at least 79 songs from her well-organized iTunes database that rank in her upper echelon. I can respect that. It's a well argued point.

I don't think I can do it either, so I'm going to instead list my top six albums from the 1980s, defined as 1980-1989. That's a bit more limited in scope, and I think I can manage a pretty good list, although from my results, I couldn't just pick six. I guess I'd be a bad lottery player.

Top Six:
"Time and Tide", Basia
"Stop Making Sense (Soundtrack)", Talking Heads
"Solitude Standing", Suzanne Vega
"Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart", Camper Van Beethoven
"Life's Too Good", Sugarcubes
"Lincoln", They Might Be Giants

Honorable Mention:
"The Raincoats", The Raincoats
"It's Better to Travel", Swing Out Sister
"In My Tribe", 10,000 Maniacs
"The Innocence Mission", Innocence Mission
"The Indescribable Wow", Sam Phillips

Worthwhile Compilations:
"Singles 45's and Under", Squeeze
"The Whole Story", Kate Bush
"Eponymous", R.E.M.
