Continuing my list of favorite albums from every year I've been alive.
The B-52s: Cosmic Thing
This one was kind of easy; mostly because I was very much the poor college student in 1989 and I think I only bought three albums all year. As much as I like the other two, I can't listen to Cosmic Thing without calling up fond memories of college and some of the girls I used to hang around with. It's inextricably tied to that period of my life.
