Originally posted by epiphinehasi sort of agree, but i think it was necessary to look harder in the 80s.
[bEDIT= I don't think the eighties were any darker than any other decade musically. It depends on where you look.[/b]
Originally posted by shavixmirWhat was wrong with the 80's? Oh my--where does one start. Disco finally died, but was replaced with something even more painful--punk. And new wave. And whatever Devo was. And didn't the end of the 80's bring us the true musical Armageddon that is hip-hop and rap? I'm not sure when those atrocities vame in--I've had my hands cupped over my ears since 1985. 🙂
What the hell was wrong with the 80's?
Well... besides Thatcherism, the haircuts and the clothing...
Some of the best albums were made in the 80's:
The Stone Roses
The unforgettable fire
And there were a lot of great hits as well:
Time after time (Lauper)
Karma Chameleon (Boy George)
Like a virgin
Boys don't cry
...[text shortened]... "Wake me up before you go go" swirling in my brain as well. What was that all about?
