Opinion analysis: Interesting 5-4 coalition holds that the ACCA reaches robberies that require force sufficient to overcome resistance (Corrected)

Melissa Manchester Looks Back at 1985 and Her Synthpop Experiments

None The 1980s weren't particularly kind to the singer/songwriters who'd emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Artists affected by these changes either attempted to move with the times or, like Laura Nyro, recorded far less frequently. Acoustic or semi-acoustic pop music was still around, but performers such as Suzanne Vega and...
