Its true that the 80s were batty at least the first half and that's being kind but Musically I would take the 80s over the crap we are subjected to
today, from the ridiculous hip-hop garbage to the kitsch disco pop from the likes of that GAGA character and others. Even music is fake today. I'd
take originally bad to fake auto-tune nonsense any day of the week!
There was a LOT of good music in the 80s from rap, metal, rock, trance etc. I especially miss the Metal and Hard Rock scene of those days from bands
like Guns and Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Nirvana etc. Not to forget groups like U2, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Queen etc.
It was the time when MTV played music videos, New Wave music was all the rage and the punk rock scene got going and things like moshing were a rage
and musicians could pretty much do anything on stage while belting out riffs!
I dont mind if the good end of the 80's come back but Rick Astley
In London the 80's revival has been in full flow for over a year now, acid coloured plastic belts, blue eyeliner and red lipstick are common
Oh, the hair and the synth sound. Major crisis, when Diamond Dave did cut off his hair
Anyways. Many great hits in the 80's. Even from the "oldies but goodies" :
Chris De Burgh
Pet Shop Boys
I wasn't really into Depeche Mode first time around, but kind of liking them in my dotage and recently acquired all their albums...this track is a
current favourite of mine, though, the Johnny Cash version is, arguably, better...from 1989, so just scraping in there...
