When's the cut-off day? I might nominate 1 or 2 but,the weather here is not too good :( I already have 65 hours at work and I'm scheduled this weekend :(

Could I maybe nominate 1? And, if time allows 2? If not I apologize to everyone :( I was really looking forward to this one

chutz, we'll wait a few days for you, too. Make it a good'un. ;)

Also, Ace ..... Since MC changed his nomination, you're good with Master of Puppets. If you'd like to give us 1 other, that would be great, but you certainly don't have to, you can just go with 1 nomination as well.

wow... in researching '80s albums, I am amazed that I'd forgotten how much good music came out of the early '80s - particularly, for some reason for me, 1982 stands out. Pat Benatar - Get Nervous, Rick Springfield - Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet, Michael Jackson - Thriller...

So it was tougher than I bargained for picking just two, but I went with two that mean a lot to me for one reason or another...

Hurts So Good

Jack and Diane

Hand to Hold on To

Danger List

Can You Take It

Thundering Hearts

China Girl

Close Enough

Weakest Moments

and

Caught Up in You

Back Door Stranger

Back on the Track

Chain Lightnin'

Rough-Housin'

You Keep Runnin' Away

Breakin' Loose

Take 'Em Out

Firestarter

Both from 1982

I always thought the 80's were terrible years for music until we did this 80's special. One of the worst years for music ever and it got even worse later. Or so I thought :laughing:

I had forgotten how awesome some of the music back then really was :bow: :bow: :bow:

I'm having a seriously hard time picking just ten. Every album nominated so far is awesome. Not a bad one among them :crazy:

I truly hope the 90's special we'll be doing has the same effect on me ;)

I mean, in my opinion, and this is my opinion, music's music. I always like it and there will always be good music out there :D

I still do, Lea... :couch: Actually I missed the sixties while I was working in the music scene during the 80s and was friends with the musicians and even maried one (and date many of them)

But there was some very good stuff too...

I'm not going to be able to do this one :( Just too much stuff going on (the weather)and lots of work

I'm sorry I held everyone up,and I apologize

You didn't hold us up .... and you will take enough time pop in and vote, right? Voting is open to everyone, no matter if they nominated or not. We'll be expecting you. ;)

Viaene, I'm sure the voting will still be open when you get back. Unless you don't make it back until December. ;)
