    Time Warp

    I love music!  When you are down it is amazing how music can soothe the soul. Evanesence - my immortal  is the best song for a broken heart!   Any other suggestions?

    Era of One-hit Wonders

    I think the 80s had more one hit wonders than most other decades, but man I love the music!  I would never want to go back to 80s fashion, but I could listen to the music all day long.

    More to One Hit Wonders Than Their One Big Hit.

    As i sit here listening to Kim Carnes - Cafe Racers, a thought all of a sudden bubbles to my mind.  While she was mostly known for her one big hit, Bette Davis Eyes, this album, recorded after the aforementioned hit, is a pretty darn good 80's album.  My mind then...

    I was in elementary school back in the 80s.

    And I grew up with an aunt only 9 years older than me. So when she became a teenager, she used to make me these mixed tapes of music that was hot at the time. It was all cassette tapes and LPs back then. My aunt had me introduced mainly to the music she liked, but some of it I...

    Listening To Def Leppard

    I just enjoy listening. The element of noise in this band gives me great pleasure. It is great to listen to this type of music. Pretty sure my parents would think it's a little weird. I come from a family with a wide love for music including lots of 80s music. I am sure they...
