lol...it's the people on the NW facebook group that are totally useless. One numpty told me he didn't want to comment on my blog because he "didn't want to add to my hit count." Huh?

This place is fine. :)

Anyway...

Time for songs 5-1 as we finish my Top 200 list.

5: B-Movie - Nowhere Girl
4: Bill Nelson - Flaming Desire
3: Trans-X - Eyes Of Desire
2: A Flock Of Seagulls - Modern Love Is Automatic
1: Blue Peter - Water Off The Moon

Hope everyone enjoyed reading my picks. Maybe someone else will follow suit!

I read the blog and enjoyed it. I commented on a pages for a few of the songs. While I certainly didn't agree with the whole list, I did get to discover some really good New Wave songs I was unfamiliar with, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
