i'm not sure where you get your information from..

opportunities was also released twice, first in 1985, and again in 1986...

so the order for the releases of pet shop boys is wrong... west end girls was a released a couple of times..

I've got all the entries done down to #40. They'll post automatically 1 per day each morning while I am on vacation.

Things get serious when I hit #30. From 30-16 are songs I rate 5 stars and from 15-1 are songs I never get tired of and listen to over and over (i.e. the best of the best).

I'll have more to say about each song starting at #30 on down. They are even in my spreadsheet in a different color.

Please keep commenting and give me your thoughts here and on the blog. Be back soon with more.
