Personal favorite '80s song(s)?
« on: September 27, 2019, 04:26:01 PM »
Even though I wasn't around in the '80s, I still love '80s music.

My personal favorite '80s songs are:

"Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen

"Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo

"Cars" by Gary Numan

"Sussudio" by Phil Collins

"Mr. Roboto" by Styx

"Rock me Amadeus" by Falco

"Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen

"Abracadabra" by the Steve Miller Band

And there is more, but that's all I want to put there for now...

Your parents are my parents bro.

Though I was around in the 80's, I was too young to remember it.

Too many. But I find that I like the forgotten, lame ones the best. Do you remember those songs, never made to top of any list between these known hits? (I mean Queen? It's not what you call 80s only.)They are usually something between them melody wise, but it feels like they don't get completed, didn't have anything original? I don't even know their names or who peformed them. You can coincide them in big 80s list videos.

I remember by association ... by replaying the songs.  Either I remember it or I don't.  If I remember it after 30 years, it must have been good enough.  Even silly songs like Don't Worry Be Happy.

"Down Under'--Men At Work
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Lol, no, you wouldn't remember it until you hear it. And then again, they sound like they are done with what was left after the hit songs were cut out from certain shablons. They are like background sound of 80s zeitgeist.

Zeitgeist?  In the Victorian period, you would have been stuck in a corset your whole life.  Long Live The Queen!  Contemporary culture has a way of demanding attention and participation.  Elites at the Paris Opera are the same, just a higher class philistine.

I spent most of the Eighties listening to the Dead, but I occasionally turned the radio on (mainly to our college station, which had a strong tendency towards New Wave and other weirdness), and occasionally I enjoyed what I heard.  :)


(the German version is better than the English version, period)


(arguably the most unexpected hit of the decade... and the video was shot between shows during a two-night run at Laguna Seca, wrapping up around 5am according to one attendee)


(I like the extended version better)


(because DEVO, dammit!)


(because TMBG, dammit!)


(Brian Eno's true instrument is the studio)

I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

Even though I wasn't around in the '80s...
Whippersnapper.  XD

Regardless of what you thought about the song, it was an absolutely groundbreaking video.

Wow!  That brought back memories!  I really like that song--and I remember seeing that video when MTV was worth watching.
