While you’re all anxiously awaiting for that second part of our SNES VS Genesis episode, I figured I’d share what was up until now a secret Wolfman’s Lounge artifact. This, dear WML fans, is the 80s playlist we frequently listen to in our travels together, usually on our way to see a horror double feature.
The 80s were the era of excess and, let’s be honest, cheese. I love a lot of that cheese, but I avoided many of the longstanding “essentials” in lieu of some different and, I think, better options. There’s hits galore on this thing, but I’m going to pick “Girl U Want” over “Whip It” when I’m selecting Devo tracks. I also give 1979 a pass. It’s close enough and there’s some great stuff in that one year.
So roll down the windows, blast these tunes and wish you had a new episode of ALF to watch on the tube tonight. Use the shuffle button! I didn’t order this at all.
