    1. Panic not my friend, the image is from Pixabay, hower looking at the small collection there, l can assure you, that you had two more than l had 🙂

      I mostly collected 45’s and not so much the 78’s 🙂

      Although l think l recognise most of them, l can clearly see Madonna, Rick Astley, Status Quo, The Police, Alison Moyat, Hall & Oates … do you recognise the others?

  1. I’ve got a list 🙂 for 84: “Dancin in the Dark” Bruce Springsteen; “Oh Sherrie” by Steve Perry; “An Innocent Man” by Billy Joel. For 85: “I Want to Know What Love Is” by Foreigner; “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits; “Crazy for You” by Madonna; “Take On Me” by a-ha; “Shout” by Tears for Fears; “Would I Lie to You” by Eurhythmics; “Fortress Around Your Heart” by Sting. I’ll look through 86-89 and maybe send more. Let me know if these are too many ok?
