Still in Style: The 1989 Rate, Part 2 - Rateaway Horses

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by VivaForever, Apr 26, 2017.

    In another place and time (fall of 2015), @Jeffo ran the glorious 1989 rate, which I helpfully finished for him, pitting the Big Pop Girls of the day against one another. Unsurprisingly, voters began asking why certain albums hadn't made the cut, but the good sis had a heart of stone and refused to budge on ha selections. Even when the voters realized they couldn't fight fate (or Jeffo), they kept their suggestions for a future rate coming like a pack of runaway horses...

    This is that rate.

  6. Taylor's Heart of Stone and Cher's Heart of Stone both hitting the Top 20 of the Hot 100 within six months of each other in 1990 remains confusing and iconic.

  7. Oh my. Rhythm Nation. Like A Prayer. And seeing several others here. 1989 was lit! I am here. There is definitely a lot of new stuff, but I am here to find the treasures.

    LESSER for Liza??????????

    I refuse to vote if my 11 ("If There Was Love" or "Don't Drop Bombs" or all other Results tracks) is not included.

  10. This also meant Diana Ross was left out, which is a pity, but I had to draw the line somewhere.

    @VivaForever I actually haven't realised you're back!!!!!!!

    Missed you half-nemesis!!! Now go include Results. Or at the very least "Don't Drop Bombs".

  16. ^Not available in the UK.

    This is brand new information to me!
     
  17. Oh my!

    My favourite Donna Summer and Cher albums plus Taylor Dayne and guest appearances from Tina, Neneh and Dame Liza! Count me in.

    Only one I am not familiar with is the Belinda album but looking at the singles that should be a pleasure to get to know.

    My 11 is immediately obvious!

  18. Loving Diana and she was amazing live, but she is way out of her league among these songs.
     
  19. Oh, I'm struggling with mine...

    Breakaway
    If I Could Turn Back Time
    Just Like Jesse James
    Runaway Horses
    With Every Beat of My Heart
    You Can't Fight Fate
    Buffalo Stance
    Get on Your Feet

    All strong contenders. It'll probably be Buffalo Stance though.

  20. There are so many brilliant songs in this rate deserving of it but I always think it's a good sign when your 11 immediately jumps out at you!
