Yes, I was 10 in 1980 so that decade's music is the "soundtrack to my teens"
So many fantastic bands and songs 😁
I did a 6 by 4 foot collage/marbling picture of the cover of Moonlight Shadow for my CSE art exhibition.
So many of the songs from that time, I just have to hear the intro and I am immediately back in time to my teens grin

I remember too, I was a teenager in the 80s. I still have all my mix tapes from back then up in the attic - but nothing to play them on now. I still play 80s music compilation CDs in the car, and sing along loudly.

I met Ian Donaldson recently. He's every bit as lovely as he was then!

littleshirleybeans Fri 26-May-17 23:30:14

1983 was my year grin

Destinysdaughter Fri 26-May-17 23:30:16

I've still got my old vinyl from then! Early 80s was fantastic!

1974 baby here too...I bloody love watching TOTP from the 80's. It was definitely 'my' era. The clothes! The bad miming! The terrible dancing! BUT the songs were, (and still are), so fantastic. My 80's faves:
Dead or Alive
King
Duran Duran
Go West
Wham
Paul Young
Cyndi Lauper
And I bloody loved The Kids from Fame <sadarse>

Good until the Stock, Aitken & Waterman years. And all those shitey dance tracks that sounded like someone just thumping piano keys with their open hands for five minutes.

I was a teen in the 80's and every song holds a memory. I'm so glad I lived through it. I looked forward to Top of the pops on Thursday nights and top 40 on Sunday evenings.

I was playing my dd some Bucks Fizz today. I had forgotten how fantastic 'Land of Make Believe' is.

I know I sound old and cruddy, but today's music is just so bland on the whole. I like a proper tuuuuuuune!

elephantoverthehill Fri 26-May-17 23:32:32

'Dear Prudence' was a cover - Beatles I think.

SynysterGates Fri 26-May-17 23:33:07

it now has style council.....oh I loved The Jam
saw them twice

pinkchampagne1 Fri 26-May-17 23:34:05

I love watching the old Top Of The Pops from the 80s..I have about 11 of them recorded. Have also been to a good few 80s concerts recently!

SynysterGates Fri 26-May-17 23:34:44

i did lol at the guys from Joe Boxer playing guitars
very Slash in the desert

Asmoto Fri 26-May-17 23:35:27

Another 1974 baby - SexandDrugs has just described my iPod grin.

SexandDrugsandaNiceCuppa Fri 26-May-17 23:36:11

Ooooohh Bucks Fizz!! My very first 7" single was The Land of Make Believe - played it on my little mono record player in my bedroom on a loop. I still remember them winning Eurovision - the excitement!

SynysterGates Fri 26-May-17 23:36:40

and now my george is on
I had a poster of him above my bed in my bed sit.......

Argeles Fri 26-May-17 23:36:49

80's music is heavenly & instantly uplifts my mood.

Music at the moment is total shite.

SexandDrugsandaNiceCuppa Fri 26-May-17 23:37:32

Lol Asmoto , my DD thinks my music library is beyond the pale!

BeeThirtythree Fri 26-May-17 23:37:56

Born in '81 but it was a good decade for music!
First 'record' I had was 'Kylie and Jason'...my 'Delinquents' soundtrack cassette was also a personal fave...
I valso had the Jive Bunny record though... don't judge!

World Apart, Brother Beyond and NKOTB back then although now and growing up it's the '80's tunes that get me singing...Oh I love a power ballad

SynysterGates Fri 26-May-17 23:38:21

Argeles its ok if you go metal, but other than that is seems to be dull.

SynysterGates Fri 26-May-17 23:42:43

i have just worked out what NKOTB is lol

hellokittymania Fri 26-May-17 23:54:32

I don't remember much of the 80s, but when I was a teenager in the late 90s I loved German. Anything German. So I loved Amadeus by Falco.



I like a lot of the other music though, my sisters are 10 and nine years older than me and Juan really loved Roxette, she's got the look. So I like that one. You spin me round by dead or alive. One night in Bangkok? Was that the 80s?

mrsglowglow Fri 26-May-17 23:54:39

My Era! My dd 12 is a big fan but my son not so much. I was 10 in 1980 and just hearing a song from back then I can mostly recall what year it was and what I was up to. I feel old as I hear myself too often saying all this current stuff sounds exactly the same. Artists from the 80's had their own sound and many different styles.
