[Here’s some sad news: Not every song in this playlist is going to be in the playlist! If you haven’t been following my constant whining over the last few days, I’m having some trouble with 8tracks (which I’ve used without any trouble for about 8 years!!!), and I can’t seem to get tech support to get back to me---so I’m just going to take the tracks that won’t load properly out of the 8tracks stack. I’m LEAVING the songs in my list here, though, because I want people to know what I INTENDED for this playlist to be. If you don’t know any of the songs that had to be removed, I recommend just doing a quick YooToob or Gooble search for them and giving them a listen. I only put awesome songs in my playlists, so it makes me sad to have to remove even a single track, but I’m too impatient to wait for I.T. to get back to me, and I want to get this little chapter of my life completed so I can move on to other things. The playlist was supposed to be 101 songs, but now it’s 89… That sucks, but what else can I do??? What follows is my original post, from 24 Feb., that I didn’t get to post… Thanks for your patience and understanding!!! ---RFY]

I’m in a NEW WAVE mood today. I’ve been making a lot of CDs to listen to in my car as I’m driving around making deliveries, and the songs that seem to be giving me the most enjoyment lately are those old, 80’s waver cuts! Of course, I’m never a purist, so there’s also some techno in there, and some industrial, punk, psychedelic and classic rock tracks, songs from the '90s, songs from the 2000s, and songs from the '70s, and so on. Perhaps surprisingly, a lot of the cuts I’ve picked this time were fairly popular in their day---even Top 40, in a few cases---but I think it’s important that people not be afraid of listening to music just because it WAS popular at one time or another.


You don’t have to LIKE everything in my playlist---I would never assume that anyone but me would enjoy EVERYTHING in a giant playlist like this! (101 songs is a LOT of music!) However, if you’re young and feeling adventurous, or if you’re in your 40’s or 50’s and feeling nostalgic, or if you want to do some old-school dancing, OR if you’re just a fan of a VARIETY of music styles and eras and looking for something novel to put in your ear holes, here’s SEVEN HOURS of tunes JUST for you!

That’s probably all I need to say at this point. If you’re a fan of any of these bands, let me know in the comments below. If you remember some obscure song from the clubs in the 80’s or 90’s that you haven’t heard since you were puffing on a clove cigarette and using half a can of Aqua Net to keep those bleached bangs pointed at the ceiling, let me know (I probably have it and I can include it in my next playlist!) And blah blah blah… Let’s just get to the music…

[P.S. - I still have no idea why SOME songs were deemed unacceptable this time around. Some of the tunes were ripped from CDs that I own, some where bought digitally, and I haven't a clue what the platform found problematic. Maybe, if tech support ever gets back to me, I'll add the cut songs back in...]

Wow you got some good stuff on there! I can imagine chilling out in a basement somewhere with you and a bunch of other people I've never met before. Yup, just sitting back and listening to these tunes and having some deep conversation. Like back in the day.

Perfect! That's exactly what I'm going for! (With, maybe, a black light and a fog machine for atmosphere...)
