    Yes we need to preserve the stellar songs of the 80s for future generations!

    We have lost, and are still losing color photographs and movies to fading and deterioration. Before the 40s, people tended to shhot

    "The loss of that song is really a comment on how our collective memory has been affected in the last twenty years by the World Wide Web. There are many examples of this phenomena that I can cite, as my little axiom wasn't born in a vacuum."

    Um, you're the one that can't remember a song YOU played a lifetime ago. I'm thinking this may be an internal problem. :p

    Color photographs are also inpermanant. Color photographs fade badly over time. many of the color family photographs and snapshots taken since the 1960s are becoming unusable due to color fading. This is especially affecting color movies, color slides, and color Polaroid pictures.

    My experience is different. Thanks to web resources, I can locate songs played by regional bands when I was going to school dances in high school! For instance, try Googling the Wildweeds playing the fantastic "No Good to Cry," an Al Anderson performance pre-NRBQ. I think much more has been saved and made accessible than lost. And wow, do I hate generalizing about "decades" in music as though it works that way. It simply doesn't. Those labels are applied after the fact by simpletons who apply artificial categories. Norma Blake played some of his greatest acoustic guitar in the 80s, for crying out loud. Uh... you can find out on the Web.

    Back in the eighties I has no grey hair, no pot belly, played guitar in a hot rock and roll band, and got laid all the time. Damn right I'd go back.
