Re: 80's music

A great title track from an awesome album, The Nightfly.



Then Laurie Anderson is great quirky music, Mister Heartbreak



And Kate Bush to round out the decade with, The Sensual World

Re: 80's music

I like this one from Kate Bush. It says a lot about the internet even though it was released in 1989. The video however is recent and features Robbie Coltrane.

Always makes me think of Kira and Odo - a YouTube video compilation thing was done to that song. It's a good song too.

Re: 80's music

I was totally into hair-metal back in the 80's.

Re: 80's music

I think my favorite 80's hairmetal band (who are actually still together today, IIRC) is Helix. Pure awesomeness.

Re: 80's music

No Rest for the Wicked is the only Helix album I own or have ever heard. The guy on the cover has always reminded me of RDJ.

I loved hair metal when I was a kid. Hell, I still love it: Dokken, Great White, Poison, Skid Row, Ratt ... all mainstays on my iPod.

There were also the one-hit-wonder hair bands:



And classic rock bands trying to reinvent themselves as hair bands:

Re: 80's music

80s music, esp. tracks with a prominent synth/electronic component, can awesome. If I had to pick a single track - and video - to represent 80s pop, I'd probably choose this:



Neon wetsuits, dolphins and colourful bows on little black dresses...

Re: 80's music

A long while back I posted tons of favourite 80s songs in an older thread. On top of all that, I was reminded of this recently:



(Yes, they did borrow the theme from the finale of Sibelius's 5th symphony. )

Reminds me of Winona Ryder. And she has a Trek connection. She played a communications officer in Star Trek IV.
