    I would not place Phil Collins in the pop genre, he is rock.

    Ian Paice's skin and stick work was great on this offering...especially as the world at the time was obsessed with a skinny guy with flowers hanging out his ass shouting 'Meat Is Murder'.

    Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers.

    Things were shifting fast...guys with flowers hanging out their holes dressed in Gloria Vandebilt..but these brought some order and put manners back in the music world:

    Bryan Adams - Run To You.

    Whitesnake - Here I Go Again.


    ZZ Top - Tush.

    This band quickly grew from pop pap to grown up music:

    Talk Talk - Talk Talk.


    Talk Talk - Living In Another World.

    The zenith for me...

    Talk Talk - I Believe In You.

    As a 'serious' rock dude I am not a big lover of 80s 'pop' music but 2 songs that I do like from 1985 are-

    1. Phil Collins & Phil Bailey- Easy Lover

    2. Tears For Fears- Everybody Wants To Rule The World

    No one ever mentions the Call or the Smithereens.
