I'll say it anyway

Question for everyone to ponder and cast a vote on.

Following Weezer, my fellow law slaves and I stopped for a drink. The bar where we wound up played a strange mix of music (Dre & Snoop's "Next Episode" and G n' R's "Sweet Child o' Mine"). Anyhoo, when we entered, they were playing Simple Minds's "Don't You (Forget About Me)."

Phil was all about the hyperbole last night (Different Class is the best album of the '90s! Happiness is the greatest New Jersey movie ever!) and I suspect that it was done partially to irk me. The point is, he declared "Don't You" to be the greatest song of '80s. When I disagreed, and was subsequently told to "Name one song that's better!" I came up with A-ha's "Take On Me." Daniel wisely sided with me and Phil's buddy came up with his own selection of Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine."

Any other selections?


  1. I vote for "Pour some sugar on me" because I'm hot, sticky sweet.

  2. "Don't You Forget About Me" is certainly a great song, but it's not even top 10 material!

    I'd have to put some thought into a list, but there's "Blue Monday" for starters. It's the best-selling single of all time for a reason.

    Dave and I brainstormed last night and came up with "Material Girl," "99 Luftballoons" or "Living on a Prayer"
