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?
