The Best Songs from the Best 200 Rock Albums of th

<p>So, I went to a website which had a list of the Top 200 Rock Albums of the 80's.</p>

<p>I searched for each album on Spotify and chose the highest ranked song from those albums. Simples....</p>

<p>If the album wasn't available, I chose the highest ranked song from elsewhere (compilation album, etc), which explains why The Sound of The Smiths appears a couple of times.</p>

<p>Sometimes, it just wasn't possible for some albums to be featured.</p>

<p>Where possible I took the song from the original 80's album.</p>

<p>Oh yea, it counts down from top to bottom (F.Y.C. to Michael Jackson)</p>

<p>Enjoy...</p>
