Now and Then

Oh man I became obsessed with this list. The current craze for sounds derived from the 80's inspired me to create this list of current bands alternating with the 80's counterparts that influenced their sound. A taste of now and then may be an education for some and nostalgia for others and you may forget that practically every other song is basically twenty or more years older than the current faves.
