Another era-specific list! Somehow, despite my playlists getting smaller... (no, really - look!)

... my song selections get harder - I actually had to add five eight more spots to this list just to add the others I wanted, and I'd already removed duplicates from artists as well. I wouldn't have felt right, leaving them out.

I sympathise! And anyway, top 30, top 33, top 35... Who's counting?! ;)

Nice to see some Traveling Wilburys in there. Not sure if I'd have gone with "Handle With Care" or "End Of The Line". One or the other. Not much of an overlap here with our tastes though. "The Safety Dance"?! Argh! :)

I love the Safety Dance. It's so catchy. :D and Handle With Care is the only TW song I've actually heard. :O I should probably change that at some point...

"End Of The Line" was their other big hit. Nice, sing-a-long stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwqhdRs4jyA

Bittersweet video, though. Roy Orbison died before it was filmed.
