While decluttering my office the other night, I found this small collection of music-themed trading cards. I can't imagine I would have ever bought these, so I theorize that someone at Warp One slipped them into my purchase as a freebie (I spent an embarrassing amount of money there back in my 20s). I recognize Belinda Carlisle, Janet Jackson, the Pretenders, and Blues Traveler (thanks only to "Ride, Captain, Ride," one of my favourite songs. The rest of these artists are complete mysteries to me. But they were SUPER*STARS at some point!
I recognize the same artists as you, plus Paul Young (barely).
See, Paul Young's name sounded familiar, but I can't place why. Maybe he put out a single I liked. Actually, let's just do a search...
Ah, he performed "Every Time You Go Away," which I definitely recall, and "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down," which sounds familiar enough that I'm confident I heard it at a school dance or something in the 80s.
Blues Traveller... now that's a name I haven't heard in a very long time...
