    Anyone have the track listing for maf's Best of the 80s comp? (ca. 2002?)

    It's been getting a lot of play here lately because I only have a cassette player in the car (which is itself a product of the 80s, so it feels especially appropriate). It was pretty much glued in the tape deck this week when I realized that it had that seasonal favorite "Fairytale of New York" on it. I can pick out most of the artists but I'd still appreciate a complete list.

    maf's was one of the best of the 80s. Don't know how many times that cassette provided the soundtrack for my drive down the boulevard.

    I'd use it this time

    Sorry, got me some Mirror Pond Pale Ale fueled Catherine Wheel flashbacks. But just re-upped it, so long live comp-4-trade ... http://members.mailaka.net/davey/com...e.htm#maf_more .. though he apparently had multiple Pogues. Think I got yours too.

    Hmm... that's not the one I have. It starts with Flat Duo Jets - "Wild Blue Yonder" on the A side and ends with the Cowboy Junkies on the reverse.

    Oh, sorry, he had a few versions. I think that's the Screaming Blue Messiahs it opens with. He just changed some of the songs.

    Geez, there hasn't been this much discussion about something I did since I smashed my SUV into a fire hydrant and was caught cheating on my hot sedish wife with 14 or 15 of the finest skanks ... errrr barmaids in the state of Nevada.

    Props to Mr Stone for finding that track list - God knows I wouldn't have come up with it. Davey's was the CD version - and even that would have been a stretch for me.

    Now, who's got the 8-track version?

    Yes!! Thanks, Stone.

    That Lionel Richie demo is especially haunting. I heard he was listening to a lot of Suicide at the time, a big influence on the stripped-down, hypnotic arrangement.

    Hey Rae!

    Dood, I've got all of the 80's comps and the tracklists. Glad I didn't have to do all the typing though. There's some mighty fine toons in that crop of comps.

    All I need is to see the title of a totally shitty song and the tune stays in my head for days. Arggggh!
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.
