Songs that sound like they're from the '80s but aren't
« on: December 13, 2017, 02:39:00 AM »
Another post here. This post is about songs that sound like they're from the '80s but aren't.

One song that I have in mind that is like that is Jive Talkin' by the Bee Gees.

The first time I heard #Selfie I recognized it was a modern take on Valley Girl.

I always wondered how the valley girl affectation started.  One person?  A group?  Were they mimicking one of their airhead friends, and then it caught on?  It always sounded to me like girls just acting goofy.  No one would intentionally act like that, or would they?

!980s San Fernando Valley middle class White girls ... so a meme that has no single mother.  Do you claim that teen girls act intentionally?  Or teen boys?

Let me know when some group makes new Simon&Garfunkle or late Beatles stuff...

OK, that's pretty good.  Blondie mixed with Heart...  A bit too electric pumped with disco though.  Got anything else?
