    Home alone and having put the kid to bed, I've been passing the time using my general favorites spotify list to create a top ten songs playlist by decade. Actually rather fun to see what you end up with when forced to pare it down to ten songs. I thought maybe that could be a point of departure for an entertaining thread, or rather, for a number of threads. Just one rule: Only one song per artist/band.

    Well anyway, here's mine, in no particular order;

    Wire: A touching display
    Kate Bush: Breathing
    Kate & Anne McGarrigle: Complainte Pour Ste Catherine
    Roxy Music: Editions of You
    The Stranglers: Golden Brown
    Gang of Four: Love like Anthrax
    Carpenters: Rainy Days and Mondays
    The Stooges;: Search and Destroy
    David Bowie; Subterraneans
    Marvin Gaye; What's Going on
