In the 80s there where also experimental music


Whats intressting about the 80s is that alot of styles was getting its footprints, techno, hip hop and dance.

I Want My MTV

Some good ones here -- I can't tell you how nostalgic I feel after seeing that Spoons video, the first time I've seen it since 1985 or so (yes, I'm Canadian too).

Nothing says "80s" like A Flock of Seagulls hair and Frankie Goes to Hollywood T-shirts ("Frankie say: Relax, don't do it!").

Anyway, here's a scan through that big-hair, shoulder-pads and legwarmers' decade:

1981: Rick Springfield -- Jessie's Girl (classic power pop)


1982: Yazoo -- Don't Go (classic new-wave synthesizer riff)


1983: The Police -- Every Breath You Take (all time great song + great video)


1984: Frankie Goes To Hollywood -- Relax (I think this is the USA-MTV video)


1985: Debarge -- Rhythm of the Night (check the Black mullet + moustache combo)


1986: Wang Chun -- Everybody have Fun Tonight (doesn't get more 80s than this!)


1987: Bryan Adams -- Remembrance Day (amateur video, but nice WWI tribute...Canadian perspective)


1988: Tracy Chapman -- Fast Car (who could forget this classic debut?)


1989: Young MC -- Bust a Move (legendary!! -- "don't hang yourself with a celibate rope!")

Since I would also break the interwebz posting all of my favorite 80s songs, here's what is probably my favorite "One Hit Wonder" from the decade (though, for me I love their album work as well):

^ Excellent call. This one wasn't big in the US (I think I only ever found out about it via MTV... when they were still "Music" Television ), but I love it nonetheless.

Not as big a fan of Fields of Fire, but that being said, all of The Crossing is pretty brilliant.

All the best dance stuff was written in 1989, or before.

Old skool FTW.
