    I have never listened to an 80s stones record after Tattoo You . I guess there’s what ? Two or three from the 80s?

    Oh - I just looked - there’s 4 !!! :eek:

    I put them on my Spotify list and I’ll listen tomorrow and see how bad they really are. I know that Harlem shuffle sucks big time so there’s that...:confused:

    Dude Run DMC/Aerosmith made it acceptable for urban black dudes to listen to rock. That jam had cultural aftershocks.

    DJ’s had big ears and had been using that and Levee Breaks for years before.

    And , that jam got rural white mullet heads into hip hop.

    It’s a scientific fact !

    I don't think anyone got better in the 80s...it was about overproduction and MTV. Poor Geezers didn't stand a chance.

    Sequencers/drum machines suck.

    Mostly yes, but sometimes a sequencer can be fun.

    The Police, Peter Gabriel, Joni Michell, Thomas Dolby, Robert Palmer (excluding Addicted To Love),
    Donald Fagen, Larry Carlton, Squeeze, Devo, Marvin Gaye, Albert Lee, Steve Morse, Eric Johnson, all got better IMHO

    Songs In The Key Of Life is the Sgt Pepper of the 70’s. Infinitely influential. I Just Called To Say I Love You sold phones at best..... Even Stevie cringes on that one...

    Well, Paradise Theater was '81 and so just over the line.

    And Mr. Roboto is a masterpiece compared to Music Time.

    To me, Neil always tapered off then comes back every few albums.

    And yes, (Jefferson) Starship.
    We always sang it "We built this cash grab and sold right out."
