  Darren,

Are newly inducted albums like Steve Nicks' Belladonna not being included into consideration for the the 1980s vote? I do not see it in the list. I think newly inducted albums Should Definitely Be Included for Voter Consideration.

How does Justin Hayward & John Lodge Moody Blues compare to Jagger/Richards and McCartney/Lennon as singers and songwriters? Seems they have been shortchanged in this department. I think this is Moody Blues year for Nomination and Induction. Intelligent music no doubt. KING

  Sean, it almost seems as if anybody who writes a song with "Missing You" or "Miss You" in the title insures themself of a future royalty stream worth at least 2 children's college educations. How many have there been....The Stones, Lisa Loeb, John Waite, even Dan Fogelberg...probably half a dozen more...

"I thought we had already inducted 'Missing You?'"

I don't think so, and it seems like a big '80s pop omission and one of the main adult contemporary standards not inducted (I was reminded when joker mentioned The Babys' "Isn't It Time", but I think this solo hit was better than any of their band hits.) That said, with this very deep ballot, I actually ended up barely feeling like voting for it.

  AlexVoltaire (Pope Charming ?) :

The only album that really stands out for me from that list is Paul Simon - Graceland (1986) because it was one of the most successful musical experiments of all time. Even Rolling Stone ranks it #71 of the 500 greatest albums of all time.


What I don't understand is if this is Round 1 of the 1980s Group Rankings then why are some 80s albums already ranked??
