always teetered on the edge of new wave. liked a few songs by the heads and such but i have been going deep.

been really enjoying 80's music in general. i enjoy it much more now than i did 20 years ago

like this.

this song is the god damn jam!!!!! thats right



yes yes yes
1986...
i was 8 and this was my #.



thank you donnie darko for introducing me to this joint





cant get enough of the 80's as long as it is not the terrible metal that was around.
yes there was some good stuff but i didnt care for most of it

I'm an '84 model myself and no one did 80's rock better than the Australians.



And then we have this poignant little ditty



And then we light it up with this...

Check this out. This song is a little more punk but Spring Sessions is a bit new-wavish i think.


Enjoy!

The 1980's had some amazing music. It also had some real crap. These are my marks of the 80's that remain on my Life Playlist...

Frida - I know there's something going on


This has become my most played song on my iPod (sorry Zakk!).

I think there is something about 80's reverb that always sucks me in. As a bonus, you get Phil Collins (and his drum sound) bashing the skins.

And this...

INXS - Don't Change
