Ziggy Marley ticket stub 1988

It was back to 1988 this week on Flashback, the year of Iran/Contra, MVP Michael Jordan, and the debut of Prozac, the stealth bomber and crack cocaine. The music was all over the map as usual and included everything from one-hit wonders, Big 80's power balladry, and even an underwater inspired trick musical question. As always, no paradoxes were created by our trip back in time. (Although, how would we know if there were?) Here's the playlist:
