I heart Martha (and hope she doesn't mind me doing this)!

I love Martha, I really do. And I love her even more after discovering a 1983 Readers’ Poll from Creem magazine that she never mailed in. I have this big stack of older magazines from Martha: Creem, Rolling Stone, Musician, Record Review. All issues that well, being born in 1980, I never had the chance to read. A lot of them contain articles on some of my favorite bands and musicians from “back in the day”. But somehow when I first thumbed through the issues of Creem, I must have missed this readers poll. Are therein lie a few more reasons why I love Martha:

Top 3 Albums
U2 – War
X – New World
Ramones – Sub Jungle

Top 2 Singles
“Breathless” – X
“New Year’s Day” – U2

Top 3 Live Groups
Eric Clapton
U2
Ramones

Biggest Disappointment of the Year
No new Springsteen album

Hero(ine) of the Year
Mick Jones

Ripoff of the Year
Police Stadium tour

Most Pathetic of the Year
Boy George

Fad of the Year
Boy George Look (yuk)

Sex Object of the Year
Simon Le Bon

Best Tour
Asia – CANCELLED!

How many concerts did you attend in 1983?
13

How many LPs/Tapes did you buy in 1983?
45 +

The mags she sent me are in a safe place at my mom's. I remember her sending me all the Keith Richards goodness.

Ripoff of the Year
Police Stadium tour




Creem sounds like one of those magazines where the readers or the writers hate anything that becomes massively popular.

Rolling Stones readers voted the Police the band of the year by a significant margin.

That was my vote. They sucked at the stadiums; they were much better indoors.
