    I know most of it is really cheesy,

    and did not stand the test of time, like the classic rock did. But I can't help it - I was the right age at the right time! This is my youth we're talking about. ;-)

    I love pretty much all 80's music except

    for a select few artists that just weren't me. I also love finding revival bands with genuine sound. This is one of those few good revival bands who actually succeed at bringing back the sound. It feels so good when you find that modern band that sounds authentic!

    80's...My Most Favourite Era Of Music And Fashion...:)

    I feel late 70's and 80's was the Golden era for Music and Fashion. I was born in 1988, didn't get much to live the life of 80's but as I grew-up and began to do my research on music and fashion, figured out that 80's were the best of all. Well, opinions vary from person to...

    Everybody recognizes Autograph

    for "Turn Up the Radio", but I prefer this one over that one. What's your favorite hair/glam song of all time?

    Melt With You

    "Moving forward, using all my breath / Making love to you was never second best" I can't think of a better opening lyric than Modern English's "Melt With You."  An anthem of the 80s, the song (even its recent rendition by Nouvelle Vague) brims with...

    "Overkill" I can't get to sleep I think about

    the implications Of diving in too deep And possibly the complications Especially at night I worry over situations I know will be all right Perhaps it's just imagination Day after day it reappears Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear Ghosts appear and fade away

    "Out Here On My Own" Sometimes I wonder Where

    I've been Who I am, do I fit in? Make-believing is hard alone Out here, on my own We're always proving Who we are Always reaching For that rising star To guide me far And shine me home Out here on my own When I'm down and feeling blue I close my eyes so I can be with you Oh...

    60s,70s and 80s is what I'm about.

    I remember Phil Collins music from disney's

    'Tarzan', then hearing him again in disney's 'brother bear.' A lot of love and nostalgia whenever I hear his songs or when I watch those movies again. And when I was little, staying to the end of the credits in my 'Tarzan' VHS tape, his music video of "Two Worlds, One Family...

    A-Ha

    Anyone remember the fabulous Norwegian group A-ha? With the gorgeous lead singer Morten Harket. Looks and voice to die for. They were brilliant. Take on Me, The Sun Always Shines on T.V. , The living day lights. Just to name a few.

    And we danced Like a wave on the ocean,

    romanced We were liars in love and we danced Swept away for a moment by chance And we danced and danced and danced

    My five year old daughter was dancing around

    the kitchen this morning singing "Dancing with myself" by Billy Idol. Tell me she doesn't hear her fair share of 80's music from daddy. I love it!!

    I Grew Up On This(:

    When I was a little kid, around the age of 2 and 3, I can remember my parents listening to 80s music all the time. Loverboy was one of my favorites of all. I grew up listening to this. I never knew that much of any other kind of songs for a long time. Me and my dad would go...

    80's Was Absolutely Best In Every Genre

    Whenever I think of 80's music, the thing that strikes me is that it was just so good in every genre, across the music spectrum. So inventive, creative and fresh. In pop there were greats such as brother beyond (the harder I try), Yazz (the only way is up), human league, prince...

    The Police

    I think The Police is one of the greatest bands of all time. The had their greatest hits in the 80's and they came out one after another. Sting was criticized as being strange, but he's a creative artist and without color, his performances would never have brought him the fame...
