"From 1982 Favorite songs: Baby Be Mine, Human Nature I love this whole album. As a child, I religiously listened to the vinyl record of this. Lots of Halloween memories with the title track! I bought the cassette of this album as an early teen, and later on, the CD. Michael Jackson's blockbuster album never gets old."

"From 1987 Favorite songs: With Or Without You, Trip Through Your Wires The Ireland band's most successful album. With Or Without You was a Billboard top hit in 1987. Both of my favorite songs listed hold significant meaning to me"

"From 1984 Favorite song: Rock Box Run DMC is one of the pioneers of rap. Although the album is not their best, Rock Box is an awesome song. I first heard it on the Playstation 2 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and I fell in love with it's funkiness!"
1984

"From 1983 Favorite songs: Jump, I'll Wait I grew up with the 45 record of Jump. I'd never heard such cool synthesizers at the time! Later on in my life, I found I'll Wait on the b-side of a cassette single of Jump and loved it. Van Halen's 1984 album is a classic rock masterpiece."
Van Halen: 5150

"From 1986 Favorite song: Dreams I've never been a huge fan of Sammy Hagar, but he kills it on this album. Powerful rock from Van Halen."
Innocent Man

"From 1983 Favorite song: Uptown Girl Another staple of my childhood; I listened to the 45 record of Uptown Girl constantly. It's a song you can really sing to and nod your head to. It's kind of a diamond among this otherwise average album in my opinion."

Against All Odds
Against All Odds
"From 1983 Favorite song: Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now) by Phil Collins Phil Collins yanks at your heartstrings with this one. Still makes me tear up. It holds significant meaning for me and is hard for me to listen to at times. Wonderful work by Collins though."

"From 1989 Favorite song: Living In A World (They Didn't Make) This song tells a story and there's a sad overtone to it. Great song. The whole album is fantastic; by far Janet's best work. She has her brother's influence with her own style included."
Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston
"From 1985 Favorite songs: How Will I Know, All At Once Back in the day before Whitney got mixed up with Bobby Brown and drugs, she was an absolute marvel. Crisp, soaring, beautiful voice and magnificent soft pop songs. This is another album I grew up with in the 80's."

"From 1981 Favorite songs: YYZ, The Camera Eye Rush is truly a 'rush' of progressive rock magic. YYZ is one of my favorite instrumentals of all time. The song always gets me pumped. It's fast and powerful. The Camera Eye is fast and unique. The album itself is probably Rush's best work"

"From 1982 Favorite songs: Wandering Stranger, Round And Round Lionel's debut solo album is wonderful! He is one of my favorite singers of all time and was a huge part of my childhood. I heard Round and Round on the b-side of the 45 single of Stuck On You and really liked it. Wandering Stranger is one of my favorite soft rock songs of all time. It's a tearjerker for me, but is a beautiful song."

"From 1985 Favorite songs: Dancing On The Ceiling, Ballerina Girl, Deep River Woman This entire album is a work of art. My parents owned this vinyl too. Dancing On The Ceiling was another one of my mom's Jazzercise songs. Ballerina Girl makes me choke up, it's just so melodic, heartfelt and gorgeous. Deep River Woman unique with a country feel. The harmonizing will give you goosebumps."
