That's kinda what I'm getting at. I think the super groups of the 60s and 70s were awesome, but I actually liked the top 40 pop music of the 80s. That's why I appreciate the 80s so much is because the 60s and 70s artists still got a lot of airplay AND pop music was great and diverse as well. I know ...

No, but Auburn fans seem to be some of the worst about getting super defensive if anyone suggests they cheat. Alabama and most SEC fanbases let the accusations roll off their back because they don't feel the need to defend the pristine virginal virtue of their school the way a lot of Auburn fans do....

Yeah, don't understand Tyger's point at all. Literally 90% of popular music produced the last 15 years wouldn't even meet "sh###y" music standards of the 80s. That's how bad music post 2000 has become by comparison. The 70s were great beca use of the super groups that continued from the 60s but ther...

I haven't been to Fort Morgan itself in years. There is an annual Civil War reenactment in my hometown that I'very been to once and have to admit it's pretty cool. You can always tell when it's going on because you can hear the cannons going off from the other side of town. It's amazing how loud tho...

"real one hit wonders"
I heard a song that epitomizes a true one hit wonder. I almost forgot about the song before hearing it on 80s on 8 and they didn't have another hit that I know of. The chorus in this song is catchy and addictive as heck and puts you in a good mood.

What about these songs that are better imho? Assuming you're fairly young, do yourself a favor and listen to these great songs. SM is arguably the most underrated British new wave band of the 80s.

It's hard to take what you say seriously when you equate metro Birmingham with "Huntsville, Montgomery Savannah, Tallahassee, and yes Augusta".

So? Lowly Montgomery is 202,000 and isn't close to Augusta and is nowhere even remotely close to Birmingham. Mobile (metro) at 600,000 (based on same criteria you judge Augusta) is as important as Augusta and has a port as big and important as Savannah ...

This is true. Atlanta is it's own entity apart from Georgia. Atlanta is the Southeast's version of the Los Angeles area except that it has even less of an identity than L.A. Atlanta is a sprawling bloated soulless monster of a metro full of transplants with no identity. It's why it's considered one ...
