I just spent that last few minutes looking over my 1986 playlist. I know that after listening through the 1985 playlist and being pleasantly surprised by how good it was, I was really excited to get to 1986. And while 1986 looks like it was pretty damn good for music, I really didn't buy much of anything that year. I don't know where my head was, but it really wasn't on music. Most of what's on that playlist I picked up well after 1986 was over. There may be other releases, but after a quick review, it looks like the two albums I bought that year were Tina Turner's BREAK EVERY RULE and Basia's TIME AND TIDE. But upon further study, I find that I have TIME AND TIDE in the wrong playlist, as Wikipedia states the album came out in 1987. I need to fix that right now. It seems to me like it was awfully early for that album. I have definite late 80's memories of it. 1986 seems too early.
I have no idea what the hell else I was doing in 1986. I know I was addicted to Dynasty, so maybe my head was stuck in the nighttime soaps. I wasn't hanging out with the group of friends I was about to make yet, so most of 1986 was solo time.
What a suck ass blog entry. I'm sorry, 1986, but you aren't inspiring to me at all.
