With major love for:

"Kosciusko" - Midnight Oil
"Cloudbusting" - Kate Bush
"First and Last and Always" - the Sisters of Mercy
"Little By Little" - Robert Plant
and "Mother's Talk" by Tears For Fears, this was like the national anthem here in Detroit in the summer of '85. Even the goths, punk rockers and metalheads f-ing loved it.

"The Show" - Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick



Album of the year for me...either Midnight Oil's Red Sails In The Sunset or Kate Bush's Hounds Of Love. Whichever of those was first, Tears For Fears' Songs From The Big Chair was second.
