Is anyone else obsessed with 80s music?

I listen to everything, but always find myself going back to the 80s stuff. It's just too damn good.


I guess I can't escape the decade from whence I crawled out of.


My favs:

The smiths
Pet shop boys
Tears for fears
Depeche Mode
Inxs
Howard Jones
New Order


and all the other no talent hacks, I like them too.

Love the 80's.  I need to invest in more 80's music.  Great time for music.  I will throw in Duran Duran once in awhile.  embeer

I like to listen to it, but I usually get depressed when I think about my childhood...  sad
OH how I wish I could go back...

Re: Is anyone else obsessed with 80s music?

I got tons of 80's MP3's...about 6GB worth...

Nothing like rolling up to a stoplight with "Here I Go Again" blaring out of the car.  At stopl lights I have daydreams that I have a Linear and an Aero... Tawny Kittain does a cartwheel across both then the splits...  then I go out there and yell at her for scratching and denting my 92-X's hood banana

The light turns green and I wake up.

Ahhh Whitesnake. This kid I worked with last summer (my last summer job ever before I graduated) said when he heard "still of the night" by Whitesnake he could kick anyone's ass. He was a goofball.

Re: Is anyone else obsessed with 80s music?

I got INXS and New Order in my CD changer at this moment, have you heard New Order's latest album?  Its actually quite good suprisingly. I don't really like any of their recent stuff but this came as a big surprise.

80's Euro New Wave!  What is the album title of the new New Order album?

I have a playlist dedicated to just New Wave.  Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Cetu Javu, OMD...

I may have to check out new order's newest. I saw it at best buy, but didn't pull the trigger.

Re: Is anyone else obsessed with 80s music?

Yes! Definitely the best era of music in my lifetime.

Let's not forget:
The Police
Billy Idol
The Cars
Boston
Duran Duran
Eddie Money
Phil Collins
etc etc

Can't beat 80s guitars!


Wow, way to resurrect this thread...!

Re: Is anyone else obsessed with 80s music?

No doubt there was some good music in the 80s but I believe there was much more awful music produced than good. 90s alternative wasn't bad and 60s and 70s rock were certainly the golden years.

Still alive of course. People haven't figured out this post yet.
