    Totally addicted to 80's music.

    And the thing is, it wasn't until about two years ago that I really started to like 80's music. I'd heard it but never really liked it because after 1981, most of the music was lacking the light, airy, feel-good sound of the late 70's that I love so much. When I met my...

    Just like with movies

    and everything else, I'm the only one in my house that enjoys music from the '80s. Although I was born in 1988, this is some of the music I grew up listening to. I have my dad to thank for that. He also introduced me to music from the '50s and '60s. Music today simply doesn't...

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

    I swear NOONE at my school listens to what's obviously the greatest music ever written from this era....but me.

    I guess mostly because most of my generation

    look up to then now as people who actually made good music. as years goes on music becomes sometimes meaningless. at the moment 80s music is good and reminds me of the things people played when I was growing up. not too sure about the 80s hair though lol :p

    I grew up in the 80s

    and love the music of that era. As a kid I was obsessed with collecting vinyl singles and have found some great obscure songs that should have been hits. I decided to create a blog to track as many of these songs as well as other 80s songs that were never released as singles...
