Nostalgia is a Hell of a Drug

Another restless night for you? Yeah… Me too! And what do I do when I can’t sleep?

  • Battle laundry?
    • Laundry is undefeated and will remain undefeated through the end of time
  • Should I pop in that DDP Yoga DVD and get my ass to stretching?
    • He’s 62 y/o and in better shape than most Millennials.
      • Not my battle tonight
  • Read the War of Art (again)?
    • I’m definitely fighting some resistance!

Like most nights, I end up looking for the bottom of the internet. Tonight, I’m looking for it on Twitter. That’s when I came across this post that had me going down memory lane:

Adam Schwartz (formerly of the Two Plus Two Pokercast and now the cohost of DAT Poker Podcast) has always brought up his love music on the shows. So, I knew this tweet was going to get a lot of interesting replies and I had to rail it.

I’d say that most of the songs mentioned in the thread are relatively obscure. But, I did enjoy a lot of them. I liked them so much that I went ahead and created a YouTube playlist

Nostalgia is a Hell of a Drug: 80’s Revisited

The majority of the songs on the playlist above are on the New Age and Punk Rock tip and totally have that 80’s feel to them. You might even find a few POP, Metal and Rap gems in there.

If 90’s Slow Jams are your thing, I also created a playlist for that:

I hope you get to enjoy them! I’m going to try and finish off this Tiger King series now!
