        Rather than get the best songs of the year but the artists listed,
Rolling Stone instead opted for the lesser known, (most likely cheaper songs)
by most of the arists here.  For example, "Spy In The House Of Love" by Was
Not Was instead of "Walk the Dinosaur" or "Middle Man" by Living Colour
instead of "Cult Of Personality" or "Glamour Boys".  There's also two rap
songs on here, which is a little out of the ordinary, but at least they're
big hits for the rap scene of the time, the somewhat forgotten movie about the
Bloods and Crips of LA "Colors" and "Bring The Noise" which was pretty popular
too... Over all though, this disc doesn't have a lot of great music on it like
the previous few.
