dude, you're all over the place.

Horse with no name was released in the early 70's
Breakfast in America was released in the late 70's
last train to london - late 70's

Leonard Cohen - Everybody Knows is one of the coolest songs I've ever heard. (1990's I think)

I can't believe you're requesting temporal accuracy over me pouring my little heart out.

"You're right
I'm sorry
It's my fault"

Just for that .... I give you:

You hurt my feeling!

edit: there, I changed the thread title to accommodate thee.

Thank-You for restoring my mind.

Thought for a moment that I was in a time warp, especially America. I knew it was from the early 70's..

But whenever, I enjoy listening to them all..

Late 80's but a precedent of inaccuracy has already been set

Right on time

I can never pass up a good music thread...

Devo "Whip it"

Dead Kennedys "Police Truck" - from the good old days when Jello was there...

Paul Hardcastle "19"

Bruce Springsteen "Born to run"

R.E.M. "Orange Crush"

I just think this one belongs here someplace

I see your Talking Heads (great choice) and raise you a Black Flag sir...

Perhaps particularly relevant to ATS - the guys that fought the good fight?

Edit to add:

Over here in the 80s in grim old Thatcher's Britain, something stirred...

Things were stirring here too

I may have to stab my ears with an ice pick.

Meaningful rock form the eighties!?
If no one listens to it anymore is it still meaningful?

Okay, I take it back.

And I'll play... an updated (and much improved) version of a timeless classic - just for you S-dog:

Hey S Dog, I was busy raising kids in the 70's and 80's but this song has stayed with me and I love it today.

This thread is really, really just making me chuckle and a pleasent break from some of the heavier threads going on at the moment...

I'm down with the 80s soft rock and I do have a tendency to go for the more politicised stuff...

but - "this video is unavailable in your country due to copyright restrictions" - bah! Got the song though...

Is this turning into a guilty pleasures thread?

Edit to add:

Something that really sums up the UK in the 80s and maybe now and a great, great song...
