Some great choices there! Big Country ... what a band. Miss Stuart Adamson every day. And love, love, love General Public. Wish Mick Jones had stayed with them instead of forming Big Audio Dynamite. And love the choice of Hard Promises by TP. And great choice with Kate Bush. She's such a genius. And, London Calling, of course ... hard to beat that one.
