Certain Songs #1152: The Miss Alans – “Pagan Home”

Cassette: Bus
Year: 1987

1987 was one of my all-time favorite years for music. The Joshua Tree. Sign ‘O’ The Times. Pleased to Meet Me. Document. Tunnel of Love. Warehouse: Songs and Stories.

And, for me, Bus was right there with all of them: I had it as #5 on my year-end list back in 1987, and a few years ago, when I did my list of my favorite albums of the 1980s, I had it at #36, just behind The Gift, War and Fables of the Reconstruction of The Fables, and just ahead of The Unforgettable Fire, Flip Your Wig and Tim.
