Ten random things: April 8

Ten songs that reached number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart in 1989:

  1. XTC - The Mayor of Simpleton
  2. Julian Cope - Charlotte Anne
  3. Hoodoo Gurus - Come Anytime
  4. Love and Rockets - So Alive
  5. The Replacements - I'll Be You
  6. Tears for Fears - Sowing the Seeds of Love
  7. The Cure - Fascination Street
  8. Ian McCulloch - Proud to Fall
  9. Camper Van Beethoven - Pictures of Matchstick Men
  10. The B-52's - Love Shack

I don't think I really needed to be reminded that "Love Shack"—or any of these songs, really, but that one in particular—is more than 20 years old.
