In 1989 I was 19 years old, so you'd think that musically this would totally be my era and that the 1989 # would totally be my music. But none of them.

I think there's a combination of music being even more regionally separated (marketing-wise) than films and the main problem that I just have a weird taste in music.

I'm now wondering where I can find a list of albums by year to check what I listened too.

here is the field for the 1989 #
GROUP A
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
Fugazi - 13 Songs
Julie Cruise - Floating into the Night
Lenny Kravitz - Let Love Rule 

GROUP B
Bob Dylan - Oh Mercy
The Cure - Disintegration
Faith No More - The Real Thing
Indigo Girls - Indigo Girls 

GROUP C
New Order - Technique
Nirvana - Bleach
Peter Gabriel - Passion: Music for the Last Temptation of Christ
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Mother's Milk 

GROUP D
Madonna - Like a Prayer
Motley Crue - Dr. Feelgood
Sepultura - Beneath the Remains
The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses 

GROUP E
The Cult - Sonic Temple
Janet Jackson - Rhythm Nation 1814
Lou Reed - New York
Pixies - Doolittle 

GROUP F
The Blue Nile - Hats
Kate Bush - The Sensual World
Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
The Wedding Present - Bizarro 

GROUP G

Tears for Fears - The Seeds of Love
Tom Petty - Full Moon Fever 

GROUP H

Well, there's this list, but it's still very American:

From that I only get Throwing Muses, 10,000 Maniacs, The The, The Sugarcubes and of all things, Transvision Vamp. Yes, I own up to that.
