I Love 80's Music

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,510 People

    I have to admit, although music in the 80's was

    a welcome change to the stagnant condition that rock of the late 70's found itself, it was merely an extension of new wave and punk of the 60's and 70's. In fact, many bands from the earlier years were prominent in the 80's. Bands like The Stones, Bowie, Lou Reed, The Kinks...

    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!

    This song describes me

    so well.I got to see Pat live a few days ago, and it was so high-energy! Sadly that will probably be the last time I ever get to see one of her amazing concerts. I feel cheated out of the real experience by my 1994 birth. Many of the artists I literally worship won't be around...

    I wish I grew up in the eighties.

    Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You), Come On Eileen, Makin My Dreams Come True, Private Eyes, Lady, Don't Stop Believing, Sweet Caroline, Take On Me.....gives me nostalgia of a time period I never lived in. It reminds me of my childhood, though. Growing up in the nineties I...

    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. ;-)

    Accidentally ran into this from 1986 (a big

    year) on Youtube, and oh do I remember it. Also I seem to recall it was the first song I'd heard on computer, although the memory is hazy... There was another one by Suzanne Vega, which I can't quite remember. So my music tastes have really changed, huh? :) Pet Shop Boys...

    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!!

    "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

    I have a weekly Top Ten of my personal

    favorites of every week. I am a huge 80s fan. There were lots of interesting music during the decade. How I wish I was able to listen to every song that was made during that decade and get a big collection and do an 80s radio show.

    So... I think I'd forgotten about this song,

    but have been hearing it on ads for some video game (Grand Theft Auto?) on tv and on youtube.Thought I'd post it, since I've been listening to 80's music!Sly Fox - Let's Go All the Way

    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...

    Wow Wow I've always liked Bow Wow Wow. I like their use of percussion on songs like I Want Candy and Louis Quatorze. This song has a real cool guitar sound that's reminiscent of a surf rock song. It's not Punk and its not New Wave. It's classic New Romantic. It's still a...

    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...
