Here's what I was hoping to post yesterday:
By popular demand (of one person), here comes disc two of Songs from the Locust Years:

This was thrust upon us as the theme song for the Contiki® European tour that a few of us went on after I
finally finished college. I don't think any of us liked it during the trip. Or at least not until the very end of it. Or was that just me?
Quintessential to the period:
Hall. And. Oates.
A little ditty compliments of our neighbors to the north, Loverboy:
The Monkees even made it on our soundtrack:
And more Pat Benetar:

If you made it this far, thank you for listening. It should be noted that this soundtrack was heavily influenced by a jukebox that was not very up to date, hanging out with some guys whose driver's license photos were unrecognizable because the "used to have long hair," and being devotees of a cover band (who had several different iterations). The Locust Years were actually lived circa Y2K.
It should also be noted that the above songs are © of their respective owners.
