In your Eyes - Peter Gabriel

First Chair. Last Call.

With mad respect to the following albums:

Master Of Puppets - Metallica
Peace Sells, But Who's Buying - Megadeth
Reign In Blood - Slayer
Parade - Prince
and The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths, my Album of the year was So by Peter Gabriel. As for the song of the year, I thought it was going to be horrendously difficult to pick anything less than a 5-way tie (which would've included Madonna's "Open Your Heart" for sure), but it turned out to be quite easy.

"Is Your Love Strong Enough" - Bryan Ferry (feat. David Gilmour)
