I didn't just sample rock, metal, techno, trance, classical, opera
I truly enjoyed each and every category for several years.

for crying out loud I even listened to Goa Trance and eastern and western
hymns.

And after all this time and all this musical listening experience.

Its the 1980s people, the freakin 1980s that produced in my opinion the
most soulful music ever.

Don't believe me?

Here listen to this and you will actually reverse your aging for 10 minutes
or so


I mean compare this to profanity crap we consider modern music today,
the likes of Lady Gaga or Rhianna etc.

I'm kinda a closet 80's music fanatic. I even keep my hair kinda big (not quite 80's big, but not far from.) I was just a little kid in the 80's but its music and culture has always stayed in my heart. The 90's were just kind of a drag...good music, but not as much from the heart as the 80's. Besides the Phil Collins or Madonna pop stuff, you had artistic bands like REM, U2 and The Pet Shop Boys.

Awesome song examples!


How about this...

The year 1985 brought into the world the two greatest creations of the 80's. Me (*Lol*) and Dreamtheater. Unfortunately for Dreamtheater it wasn't until 1992 (upon recording Images and Words) did they have a song I actually enjoyed. Still, one of my favorite bands ever and from the 80's so it fits.



I recommend the whole song but if 9 minutes is too long for ya, head to 4:14 - 5:26 secs for a real look into what makes this band so unique and one of the best bands from this era and beyond. (for me)

Of course of course,

in fact I predict that future generations will re-discover 80s music on mass one day
and ask themselves, how in the world did our ancestors create music like
this and then let it go for something else, that slowly morphed into horrible by 1999.

yes, this is one of those song that definitely made my closest 80's favorite list. Have to admit I am side head bobbing along to the beat right now.

Although you type in yellow and what you type is mostly crap I don't agree with, yet I'm forced to read it cause its in effing YELLOW, this is the proof that theres always some point in common in human beings that can be, 99% of the time, completely the opposite of one another.


Now that said... yes, 80's music is the best, altho I think early 90s is a very very close second.

Of course we all agree that today's music is utter crap


Oh... in before someone posts the samantha fox "touch me" video...

Considered the first "techno" Album (1978) and pioneer in the electronic, ambient and New Age genres......



Considered the first "House" song.........(1983)



My first two Albums I ever bought (within a week of each other in 1984)

yeah lol for me music was awesome from the 80s to the early-to-mid 90s. For my taste, I knew that when I was listening to albums like Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette and Tragic Kingdom by No Doubt that these would be among the last albums that I'd really enjoy. I felt a shift in the music, and I later discovered that in the mid-90s the producers were taking creative control back from the artists, so my theory is that music sucked by ’99 because the producers squeezed the spirit out of it.

I think you nailed one of the reasons for sure.

Yes see take Iron Maiden for example, there was soul in that music

Compare it to today's nonsensical yelling and screaming in heavy metal.

not saying there are no good heavy metal songs today but most are violent
vibe for the sake of violence, nothing else.

The music of today is just as good (even better IMO) as anything made in the past. But for whatever reason, the musical landscape got flipped upside-down and dropped on it's head.

In the past, the popular music was, for the most part, the best of the music being released at the time. The cream would always rise to the top and everything else remained in obscurity.

Now, it's just the opposite. The popular music is all the crap and detective work is needed to dig up the good stuff.. And, trust me, the more you dig, the more you will find.

Just wear some cover-alls, cuz you'll be wading through lots and lots of straight garbage.

Give em a try. There current stuff is even better in my opinion. Anything after 2000 has been phenomenal. Plus many of the lyrics to their songs are more political.

Give "On the Backs of Angels" a listen through with lyrics.
