dudes: i wasn't mad. however, it did sound like you guys were arguing against the likability of the 80s, and since music is a personal choice, i didn't understand what you were getting at. tried to explain that point to ya. that thread was for posting 80s stuff. so, it stands to reason, if you didn't like the 80s, why post there? telling us why it sucked (to you)doesn't change the fact we liked it. anyways, i have started threads for the preceding and subsequent decades. that should take care of most everyone.
