The missing piece of your collection, and the whole 80's spirit in one collector track.
Now that's a real banger here !

I have to feel a little bit sorry or the 80s.

They spent 10 years knocking out hit after hit after hit, and at the last moment ended up getting topped by what is basically a 1990s record.

The rules are the rules though so...

The 80s list is OK but I've done a MASSIVE disservice to Iron Maiden.

Nice tune. Thanks for sharing. :thumb:

Not my one though. It was more of a banger tbh. It's weird, I know as soon as I hear it I'd recognise it but not got the faintest idea how it goes !

They used to play it all the time in Cheers (Char Bar !! :) ) in Siem Reap, and also in Pontoon. I know it because the first time I heard it I was making out with the bird I met on Valentines, who I think was my first girl in Cambodia. We were against the bar in Char and it was pumping out of the speakers (sorry, none of this helps !!).

My remaining lists should be up shortly in case of interest.
