  2. All right, let's do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-0E2oFhPwQ Yeah, I know what I said, but... since doing the shorter reviews for songs that you requested, I figured it just isn't fair to go by without giving a year its full day in court. And boy oh boy, if there's a year that deserves it, it's 1989. 1989! Where the gaudy glamour of the 80s was just about reaching its breaking point, and near everything seemed to be going to shit. The bad songs this year were baaaad. And while I still found some good songs to make up a Top 10, the amount of mediocrity and lack of care scattered throughout this year is staggering. This is a year where Prince failed to impress. Prince! So I realize this is going to be a bit of a weird one since I've already shown the list, but believe it or not, this isn't the first time I've done something like this. Waaay back in this thread, I put out a 1959 list before writing about it, and I think that one actually turned out pretty well! Maybe this one will too. We'll see. In any case, I'm writing this under the assumption that you haven't seen the full list nor my opinions, because that's the only way to create any sort of suspenseful atmosphere. Of course, that won't stop me from lampshading here and there. Ooh, what's going to be the number one? Well, let's find out... together. First, it's... Wumbo's Bottom 10 Hits of 1989
  3. Welcome to the Jungle/Paradise City: Guns n' Roses fuckin' rule, and these are some of the best rock anthems of the 80's. Make no mistake! Love Shack: Totally fun song that just feels like you're in the middle of a party, Impossible not to sing along, if incoherently. Express Yourself: Good year for Madonna! This is one of her most fun, uplifting songs, and I do quite like it. Funky Cold Medina: I don't know how well Tone Loc has aged among his peers, but this is still a fun if slightly simple and corny song. Every Little Step: Bobby Brown has had a lot of success this year, probably one of the first and best to really perfect that new jack swing R&B. The Promise: Decent song. You'd think that the one guy could spare some hair for the other, though. Once Bitten Twice Shy: The very worst hair metal bands are the ones you've never heard of. I mean, yeesh. Milli Vanilli: Okay, let's just nip this one in the bud: Milli Vanilli are absolutely insufferable, with and without the lip-syncing scam. This is the most hack 80s pop I've heard in quite some time, and part of why I delayed this so much is that I was wondering how to say "these guys suck" four different times. "Lovesong": The Cure's breakthrough year-end hit, and one of my favourite songs by them. Call me a normie, I don't care. "On Our Own": For a Ghostbusters II song, this ain't half bad. Batdance: Absolutely hilariously bad mess of a song. No idea what Prince was thinking here. Stand: I genuinely didn't know that R.E.M. crossed over before "Losing My Religion". This is another great song to file in their catalogue of great songs. What I Am: I've always kinda liked this off-kilter song, especially in the context of 1989, when everything was smooth and polished, here's this song that just revels in its angst and quirkiness. You can really see the seeds of adult alternative in the 90s sprouting here. I was floored when I found out this was from the 80s, no joke. Sowing the Seeds of Love: A wee bit self-indulgent looking back, but I kind of appreciate Tears for Fears' attempt to recreate Sgt. Pepper all the same.
  4. Much love to you all ❤️ It's a difficult decision for sure. I think for now, I just can't find the energy or time to do the write-ups. So maybe I'll post the year-end countdowns I have in their barest form, and if you guys want to know about any particular choices, just let me know (I do ask now that you keep it brief, though. Maybe 5 songs a person?) 1989
  5. So I guess it's only fair to be honest to you guys, and... the drive's kinda gone for this. I'll put it this way: A Michael Jackson song is my #1 for 1989. So... yeah. How do I even navigate around the minefield that is Michael Jackson's legacy, particularly in the age of this documentary exposing all the terrible things he did? Granted, we've known about his shadiness for years, but it feels particularly uncomfortable right now to sing his praises. And... well, it's all just hypocritical. I go on and on about how terrible people like 6ix9ine and Chris Brown are, but let's be real: it's because I don't dig their music. It's not like I've gone on the same about Michael Jackson, or Aerosmith, or any of the other talented musicians who unfortunately did very bad things. So I'm in a bit of a weird place with this thing right now. I don't really want to stop, because I'm so close to the end. But it's starting to feel less and less right for me to go on with this, too. It doesn't help that I've been busy with school and honestly I generally don't feel like I fit in with you guys anymore. Nothing any of you have done, I just wonder if I've outgrown the community. Oof. That was a mouthful. Idk, let me know what you guys think.
