Throwback Thursday - 80s Music Category


Recommended Posts

Several posts into the thread and I was fairly unfamiliar with most songs or bands mentioned. 

Seems like a really good thread. Every once in a while I hear something I really like and never actually hear much in the 80s.

Im saying you don't read MJ, Prince or Madonna when youm1st open the thread. That's not a bad thIng.

something on my mind- the Pale fountains

more more more- Carmel

compulsion- Joe Crow

lawnchairs- Our Daughter's Wedding

I thought I went pretty deep with my 80's music, but now you are making me doubt we were on the same planet.  Never heard of any of these, but always game for learning new stuff.

I'm sure someone mentioned at least a song or two but I am a huge Tom Petty fan from the 80s. Stand me up at the gates of hell was always a god battle cry. 

"Don't Come Around Here No More" from '85 is an easy listen. Most of Full Moom Fever is awesome. One of the few albums where I like almost all the songs.

The Romantics

Duran Duran UotS Live I particularly like this version recorded in the 00s in London, song still is 80s

I grew up in South Florida/Miami in the 80s and we had a lot of dance/club hits

Debbie Deb and more Debbie Deb-Weekend

Lisa Lisa

Young MC

And one of the All Time Greats for a dance floor 80s...

Shannon-Let the Music Play

Sniff'n The Tears- "Driver's Seat"

(Check out Horshack in the bomber jacket/scarf)

 

And of course, the 80-est song ever that I bring up in every instance like this....

Zot-"Uranium"

(Hairspray, scarves, pastel colors, effeminate lead singer, token black dude on bass with requisite headband, drummer standing up to play, "high tech" special effects, backflip montage in an overlay, etc)

Toto - Africa

The millennials I manage were laughing that someone has this as the hold music waiting for the conference call moderator to dial-in and they were going to Shazam to see who the artist was.

Glad the classic rock and '80's pop guru amongst them offered the info nearly instantly when someone put it on speaker.  Like scary quick.  As a 13-year old youth when that hit #1 in 1983, I was not going to offer to them that I knew the song.

A couple years too late for the '80s, but #### it, Dufresne threw a song from 1996 up in this thing, so whatever. One of my 50 favorite songs of all time:

Sugar - If I Can't Change Your Mind

No spotlighting. 90s music throwback thursday is next week.
