    I get bad road rage, and I have found out that if I am listening to 80's music that it becomes more difficult to become enraged then if I was listening to rap or rock. So what I need is a good list of maybe 100-200 1980's songs to listen to while driving, Problem is that I like alot of the songs from that era but i dont know the artists names. So If anyone has a list of the top songs in the 80's by month or year that would be great, or just give me suggestions. My car stereo has mp3 capabilities and also the ability to plug a usb flash drive into it.

    So help me out [​IMG]

    it's cheaper to buy the game (if you don't have it already) and then............................. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    you have to think i was pretty impressed to find out how to turn the ps2 into a complete soundtrack and that was done 3 years ago. i'm not sure if it could be done with vice city stories. but then again i haven't played that one. [​IMG]

    LOL i did and it was far easier and a quicker process at the time because i was on dial up but i'm sure phillyman has far more things at his disposal now.
    it's still out there as an option to those who still have the game. [​IMG]

    Those are all good but .. only one tears for fears? The pocks on thee!

    So, get all that and Shout, Seeds Of Love (all TFF) and don't forget Ghostbusters and some Michael Jackson like Bad and Moonwalker.
    The 80's was the best decade for music IMO

    The entire catalog of El Debarge. And throw in Toto's Africa somewhere in that playlist just to keep you alert.
