Oh, Huey Lewis and The News, it’s only fitting that you’d help kick off this countdown since you sang the very first song I blogged about on here. And Debbie Gibson, so glad that you made it on here, too, mostly because I recorded “Lost In Your Eyes” so many times. And hey, Bobby Brown, even though we’ve had our issues, you made some damn fine music. INXS, you also made some damn fine music, so I’m glad we get to celebrate together.
And lastly, Prince, I was never as into your music as your hardcore fans, but I was always proud that such an innovator lived in the same state that I did. And of course you made “Batdance”, for which I will be forever grateful.
