A few years ago, Marc Cohn (“Walking In Memphis”) released an album of 12 songs that were instrumental in shaping his musical identity when he was 11 years old. He called it 1970. When were you 11 years old and what songs would you put on an album of covers from that year?

Here’s my¬†1988

I Sang Dixie by Dwight Yoakum
Copperhead Road by Steve Earle
Blue Sky Mine by Midnight Oil
Cult of Personality by Living Colour
Heading for the Light by The Traveling Wilburys
Every Rose Has It’s Thorn by Poison
Gulf Coast Highway by Nanci Griffith
Orange Crush by REM
Punk Rock Girl by Dead Milkmen
The Living Years by Mike & the Mechanics
All I Want is You by U2
Patience by Guns N’ Roses
