What 80's or even late 70's tracks do you still love (or have a laugh over) that everyone else has forgotten about? I was trawling YouTube the other day and came across bands like Strawberry Switchblade, The Mission, China Crisis and Aztec Camera - music I have not heard for over 20 years that took me right back to my 'yoof' like t'was yesterday.
Please share your forgotten gems with me adding links if you can :)

Well, if we're talking forgotten tracks - I loved Sonic Boom Boy by Westworld! Just went on You tube to try and find it when I came up with this, all your 80's forgotten tracks under one roof!

Used to love this

Friday night is my kitchen disco night - Absolute 80s on the radio while I'm cooking Grin I also love Gary Crowley on radio London on Saturday lunchtimes for 80s reminiscences. I've got Belle Stars' Sign of the Times stuck in my head now, hadn't heard that for so long Smile

PercyFilth · 31/03/2012 17:58

How cool were the Belle Stars! :)

BelleDameSansMerci · 31/03/2012 18:02

Each Time (You Break My Heart) by Nick Thingy from the Levi's Ad

Loads and loads of them, tbh, and all on my iPod Of Shame.
