I read The Telegraph this weekend and I only knew the “Happy Song” in this weeks Aria chart ( I choose not to recognise the travesty of covering the perfection of Frankie Goes to Hollywood).  The other artists listed were just random words on a page. It was a shock to someone who thought they were ballpark cool.

Yet in the Aria charts retro look 16.04.01 to the right of the page  I found I  could recite pretty much the entire tracklist.

I think it was just all a bit better back then, at least that is what I am telling myself as I drown my sorrows in wine….

Which songs will live on forever in your youthful booze hazed memories as anthems?
