Gacked from poisontaster and a bunch of other people, because I like the overall idea. Although as you’ll find, I dislike many of the bands.

In summary, the 80s were evil (apart from New Wave and Ska), and I really don’t like “pop” much (and Country, Rap and Disco not at all). And for some reason, picking a single favorite anything is usually really hard for me…

1. Favorite Beatles song: She’s Leaving Home/Eleanor Rigby
2. Favorite Rolling Stones song: 19th Nervous Breakdown
3. Favorite Doors song: Riders On the Storm
4. Favorite Bob Dylan song: ummm… Blowin’ In The Wind (but not as sung by him)
