The 80's
    #4375444 - 07/06/05 01:20 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

What are some of your favorite musical highlights of the 80's?  I'm compiling a massive 80's playlist and I want to step outside my own box.  :smile:  Cheesy pop, grungy rock 'n roll and everything in between!  What did you love about the 80's?

I was young, being born in '82, so I was impressionable.  Salt N Pepa, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Cyndi Lauper.... Oh, I loved Cyndi.  I thought she was the most beautiful creature on the face of the planet.  She was like a wild bird on drugs with the sweetness of a young child.  :heart:

It is a classic. I would walk 500 (or is it 5000) miles is also a classic 80s song, whatever the real title is. i don't remember who that is by though

Yeesh! I was in High School in the '80's! :eek: Let's not forget to mention the Cars, Prince (laugh if you want to, the man could write a helluva good song), Talking Heads....oh the list could just go on and on. I have some fond memories of that time....

I was born in 85 so all my references to the 80s come way after it all happened.  Talking Heads are key though :thumbup:

80's synth pop is still great. Stuff by artists like Gary Numan, the Eurythmics, Soft Cell, Thompson Twins, Thomas Dolby, etc....

the band Coil does a remix of that song and it's pretty wicked. way different, gives it a dark dark feel but interesting to see how else it could be done.
