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.

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?
