Impressive list, ryansrs1!

Virtually anything by Joan Armatrading, Marshall Crenshaw, White Animals, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Rockpile, Dave Edmunds, Split Enz, Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Rachel Sweet, Ö (Iíll add more as I think of them). Some of these are still around too!

Radio had pretty much hit rock bottom (and has stayed there) by the mid Eighties so I had to read magazines and hang out in record shops (remember those?) to find the really good music shunned by corporate broadcast vampires. Thank God for cassette players in cars back then and now CDs and MP3 player ports!

Interesting choices!!!

I like Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Carnes - got good memories to that one. I agree totally with Vienna - Ultravox, Fade to Grey - Visage. Also very attached to Plant Earth - Duran Duran, To Cut a Long Story Short - Spandau Ballet, Goody Two Shoes - Adam Ant, New Life - Depeche Mode, Personal Jesus - Depeche Mode (although Marilyn Manson's version is way better in 2004), Tainted Love - Soft Cell

THEN.....

Jump - Van Halen, Unskinny Bop - Poison, Love is a Battlefield - Pat Benatar, Thriller (of course) - Michael Jackson

I could go on but I want to get to bed!!!

I am not sure I am doing this right. Are we listing strictly 80's bands (that made their first hits in the 80's) or they could be from the 70's and listing there hits from the 80's.

If it's hits they made in the 80's (all of them made hits in the 70's), I like just about everything from these bands:

Journey (first concert I have ever been to)
Van Halen (seen in concert)
Rush (seen in concert)
Queen

Band or artist from the 80's:

U2
Ratt
Prince

I need some more coffee. I will probably think of more later. cheesy

ryansrs1 06-29-2009 10:36 AM

Oh yeah, defo the clash and also some
  • Simple minds
  • Dexys midnight runners-Come on eileen(bad spelt i no)
  • Bit of early U2
  • The Specials (though some were done in 70s)
  • Erasure
  • Bonnie tyler (well shes a Swansea girlcheesy)
Will think of more-so many that have so many memories i cant think of them in 1 go.
