We took another successful trip downstream on the river of time (the only direction allowed so far) and rejoiced anew in the year 1991. We remembered the rain of John Paxton three pointers that doomed the Lakers and brought the Chicago Bulls their first championship.  We bid a fond farewell to the Cold War and Freddy Mercury. The Regular Guy's review of Silence of the Lambs was almost as scary as the movie itself! But most of all, we danced in our vintage flannel to the new sound of grunge, strong efforts from our established faves and everything in between. As always, the tedious stretches that filled us with impatience the first time around were eliminated. Here's the playlist:
