    I loved English Beat, The Police (later on it became Sting), Heaven 17, Level 42, Peter Gabriel, Howard Jones, Genesis (especially Phil Collins) and several other groups that people wouldn't think brothers would normally like back in the days...I wasn't the only one, either (as the list would highlight). My only regret about the list was leaving about 20-25 other songs off that I thought really need to be there (like "Once In A Lifetime" by Talking Heads) but the list was heavy enough as it was. One.

    I love that Nu Shooz tune. It was in a Lucas Puig edit I used to watch over and over a few years ago.

    I know a bunch of the stuff in that list from playing Vice City back in the day. The effect that game had on millennial listening habits can't be overstated. A generation of kids exposed to their parents' music whilst running over hookers and shooting pedestrians.
