The votes are in!
Last week, with a lovely €25 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you to name the most underrated song of the 1980s.
The response once again provided an amazing playlist of overlooked gems. Thank you.
But there could be only one winner.
Higher Ground by The Feelies
I’m not sure how this band aren’t more well known, so I could pick any of their songs, but I love this one.
All Her Favourite Fruit by Camper Van Beethoven
I could also pick one of many many Camper Van Beethoven songs; they’re best remembered for “Take the Skinheads Bowling” but their image as a novelty band doesn’t do justice to their superb songwriting and eclectic instrumentation. This is from what turned out to be their last album (prior to a 21st century reunion)…
Keeping You In Mind by Mary Margaret O’Hara
When I first listened to Mary Margaret O’Hara’s Miss America in 1988, I assumed I was listening to the first of what was going to be a long list of great recordings from the Canadian singer songwriter. Inexplicably she only made one more album, years later. Anyway, here’s my pick from a stone cold classic.
