    This thread is all about your favorite 80's music.

    Let me start off with power pop band The Outfield's Your Love.

    Great song.

    I have so much love for music from the 80s that I have no idea even where to begin. And when I say "music from the 80s," I mean specifically that. The actual 80s music (pop) genre, I never really had much time for.

    But I suppose if one is going to dive into the 80s, he best start with The Smiths.

    Mmmmm, the 80's. When music videos ruled. I went from preteen to adult during those years. There' just too much music I love from that time to really single anything out. I think this video captures the early days of mtv pretty well:

    I totally love 80's music. It's my favorite of all kinds. I make a mission in life out of collecting it. There's so much genius in 80's tunes that it's hard to find out where to begin!

    I think the reason I like it so much is that it's remarkably unpretentious: it's just about partying and having a good time and stuff like that. It's not like you get a thousand political rantings about politics in Israel or anything like that. It's just entertaining!



    @Davros: You mean the Vapors actually had songs OTHER than "Turning Japanese"? :lol:

    Guess you didn't listen to early U2, or the Alarm, or Sting, or...

    In the 80's it was all about the cold war and the whole Irish IRA thing was a popular subject as well. Oh, and

    Love the 80's. I was in my twenties, good times. ( and a few bad times)

    Yeah its from '79, but "the 80s" begins in the late 70s.

    It's funny. The boyfriend in that video always reminded me of Falco.

    Yeah, that's a weird thing to say. And it's not like there isn't a ton of songs about partying and having fun today (looking at you Kesha, FloRida, Florida-Georgia Line...)

    Oh right, the 80s.

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

    Then Laurie Anderson is great quirky music, Mister Heartbreak

    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.

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