The SBC Community Block Party 2: The Squeakquel

Steel Sponge

Recommended Posts

Hey all, with one of this month's big holidays already on the horizon, it felt like a good time to do another one of these, especially with the success of the first block party collab. This time, I thought I'd do a theme, and the theme will be...


For this SBC block party project, I'm combining one of 91x's general events with the special events that my local classic hits stations enact. As it should be telling, my classic hits radio stations LOVE 80s music and during holiday weekends, such as for Veterans Day, they host a marathon with a lineup mostly consisting of 80s music, but can we make something better with that idea? That will be the main topic for this SBC block party.

So, the rules are as follows:
-You need to make your playlist through Spotify. but as long as the songs are all available on Spotify, I will accept it entries without an embed playlist.
-Pick 3 music acts with 3 songs for each corresponding artist, with each entry being up to 9 songs total.
-Per rules of this playlist's theme, all of your songs selections must be from 1980-1989. Anything from before or after that period will have to be replaced.
-No repeat songs/music artists, or joke entries.

The current deadline for this playlist collab is currently November 10th, the day before Veterans Day. If interested, be sure to post your Spotify playlist to this thread before the deadline. So go ahead, put on your rollerskates, your parachute pants, and your walkman, and get to building your ideal 80s throwback playlist.

Here's mine lol


(a quick note about "I'll Sink Manhattan" - while it was released on the Miscellaneous T comp in 1991, it's originally a b-side from the "They'll Need A Crane" EP from 1989. Maybe a bit pedantic on my end, but figured peeps should know :funny: )
