Robert Smith counts down his favorite '80s songs. Do you agree?
Cure frontman (and ponytail-sporting Coachella curfew-buster) Robert Smith hosted a two-hour countdown of his favorite songs from the ’80s on SIRIUS XM’s 1st Wave channel at noon today. It’ll be re-broadcast through the weekend, but we snagged the full list for you, Mixers, so you can match up your tastes with the legendary mopester. My favorite of his Top 30 is embedded here (okay, it’s my second favorite; YouTube wouldn’t let me embed the Bowie). After the jump, see the full list… and then totally bitch him out for forgetting something.
