The Music of 1989


The Guardian has a retrospective on the music of 1989. While noting that the year had its fair share of dross, it was also the year of The Stone Roses, The Pixies, Happy Mondays, De La Soul and Soul II Soul, as well as Madonna's "Like a Prayer" and New Order's "True Faith". All up, a pretty interesting year for music - and also for fashion and drugs, as the middle picture reminds us. While you may not want to be reminded of it, an American version of such a list would also give a high profile to Motley Crue and G'n'F'n'R - 1989 was also a big year for hair metal.
