Live Ledge #107: 1982 (Again)

Ok, I'm an idiot. We can all agree on that. Tonight's theme, though, may have been one of my most idiotic...but I have an excuse, and it turned out for the better.
Earlier this week, Slicingeyeballs commenced on a poll to come up with the best album of 1982. I immediately jumped straight out of my chair and decided that this would be a perfect format for a show!
Sure it would be...last year. Which I did. To do a 1982-themed show in 2013 is idiotic, though. Unfortunately, that lightbulb didn't come on until after I had pulled 40 or so potential songs for the show. So I decided to go with it anyway. I also didn't take a peak at last year's version of the show. I'm sure there are a few duplicates, but I think I can get away with repeating a few tracks once a year. Right? Tell me I'm ok with doing this!
The show ended up being fun, and after a week of falling trees and power lines, it was a nice release. I do talk about the inferno of ice that fell on our city this week, along with a few other topics.
Next week I will have a more properly-timed theme - songs from 1983!!! Contact me with suggestions!
