Emergency list!

Man, I'm tempted to round up a bunch of songs and make a list just for the heck of it but it would probably be too greatest hitsy for you folk!

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to seeing all your lists!

I wouldn't worry about greatest hits or anything. I have plenty of hits on mine, and let's face it, the majority of songs from this time period were hits in one way or another. You should do it.

One way or another...see what I did there?

I never would have associated punk stuff with "retro", though. I could probably cobble together eighty minutes of punk and post-punk stuff that I really like.

Retro makes me think of cheesy discos playing Abba and Duran Duran.

Oh, it's most definitely part of it. New Wave grew out of the punk movement, after all.

Disco music is NOT new wave. Abba is nowhere near this genre. And Duran Duran isn't disco.

Well, I know new wave had its origins in punk, but the Sex Pistols, retro?

exactly. i mean shit, duran duran (since we're using them as a comparison and all) have said they were a cross between chic and the sex pistols. take from that what you will.

and yes, i am a fan of SOME (some, srsly) disco. but it's nothing like new wave, except that you can dance to it.

It was their manager who coined the term "new wave", after all.
