– Is it wrong that like this as well?Just 40 songs for 1988 in my favourites list, another shite year for good tunes. I think I found a few gems though.


Hat tips to:

The above is probably only of any interest to Pommie expats. Sorry about the formatting, I just couldn't be Ar$ed spacing all those paragraphs !


If there is any interest in these posts they are made each Friday. Let me know. I actually like the way that Phil includes the history of events at the time these songs were released. They are archived right back to the original 1955 and may be accessed directly by going to the site and selecting 'Phil the Test Manager' from the article Author list on the right hand sidebar. <going-postal.com>


( PS, if you read the BTL comments on this site, make sure there isn't a young child, or the local Vicar / Priest /Imam in the room with you at the time, as, being Political site, the vernacular can be quite raw. . . being mainly a Brexit supporting site, there are a lot of angry people on it. . . .including many Aussie posters too )


The author works as a Contractor / test Manager for large scale complex IT systems, and debugs them. . . the music stuff is just a Hobby.
