Re: 80's music

There are not a lot of bands that started and finished in the 80s that I like, although many of my favourite bands and artists recorded through the 80s and beyond.

As far as the "80s Sound" goes, one of my favourite tracks is also one of the earliest examples of that synth pop sound, it is called Same Old Scene by Roxy Music.

Re: 80's music

Fracking love '80s music. I even found something to like by some artists in genres I'm otherwise not that interested in. These are just my favorites that I can think of right now:

  • Michael Jackson, "Thriller" (and the entire album)
  • Prince, "1999," "When Doves Cry," "I Would Die 4 U," "Purple Rain"
  • The Fixx, "One Thing Leads To Another"
  • Tears For Fears, "Shout"
  • Level 42, "Something About You"
  • Dolly Parton, "9 to 5"
  • Billy Joel, "Uptown Girl"
  • Duran Duran, "Rio," "Save A Prayer," "The Reflex," "Union of the Snake," "New Moon On Monday," "Wild Boys."
  • U2, "With Or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," "Where The Streets Have No Name"
  • The Police, "Every Breath You Take," "King of Pain," "Wrapped Around Your Finger," "Synchronicity II"
  • Big Country, "In A Big Country"
  • Peter Schilling, "Major Tom (Coming Home)"
  • Men At Work, "Down Under," "Who Could It Be Now?" "It's A Mistake"
  • Olivia Newton-John, "Physical," "Make A Move On Me"
  • Culture Club (too many to list)
  • Frankie Goes To Hollywood, "Relax"
  • Melissa Manchester, "You Should Hear How She Talks About You"
  • Air Supply, "The One That I Love"
  • Kool & The Gang, "Celebration"
  • Pat Benatar, "Shadows Of The Night"

A dislike of MJ. Is it because MJ never invited you to his Neverland Ranch or perhaps he did.
