I miss the old MTV2, actually....they played a lot of good shit....I found the Doves and Elbow through M2. Those days are gone.
I know, MTV, VH1 stink. But VH1 classic is good.

Tears For Fears talk, yeah! I love TFT so much! "Head Over Heels" has such a happy video. I like it when TFT plays "Broken" live right after Head Over Heels.

Oh, I know you are a good go-to person to discuss Tears for Fears!

MTV does stink, and VH1 is, ugh, do not get me started.

VH1 Classic has a show around 9:00 that plays alternative music for an hour. They had like The Smashing Pumpkins, Dinosaur Jr. That's a great show! I wonder if it's still around.

Man, I wasn't aware of anything in the '80s, being in diapers and all, but if I had been around, Tears for Fears would have been my U2. I still gotta go deeper into their catalogue!

My respect for '80s music comes largely from the fact that my parents, specifically my mother, refused to embrace the '90s. I listened to the '80s station well until I was 15 years old. It took me months to get into popular stuff, and that was really only to have a conversation piece with people my age.

Damn, these threads always make me wish I had been born at least a decade earlier.
Mom, why didn't you get pregnant at 18?

What year were you born?

I actually got into Motown and the Beatles at a very young age, cos my parents listened to a lot of both.....but around 10, 11, I stumbled on College Radio stations, and that's how I came to like U2 and REM and the Replacements at the same time that I came to like more mainstream 80's pop.

Your Mom seems awfully selfish, not getting knocked up at 18.

Dunno why, but I tend to remember the '80s more in terms of albums than singles...off the top of my head, and in no particular order (and not counting U2):

Replacements, Let It Be
Sonic Youth, Daydream Nation
Lou Reed, New York
Public Enemy, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
Camper van Beethoven, Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart
Violent Femmes, Violent Femmes
Husker Du, New Day Rising
Tom Waits, Rain Dogs
Pogues, Rum Sodomy & the Lash
Beastie Boys, Paul's Boutique
Sinead O'Connor, The Lion and the Cobra
Cars, Shake It Up
De La Soul, 3 Feet High and Rising
REM, Lifes Rich Pageant
Prince and the Revolution, Purple Rain
Joe Jackson, Night and Day
Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense (I know, a live album)
Peter Gabriel, So
Kate Bush, Hounds of Love
Pretenders, Learning to Crawl

I've been having an 80s revival too and it definitely included Erasure. Thanks for sharing all this stuff, it will help me continue the revival.

I know this may be completely geeky, but I don't think I've seen this on the list and its one of my 80s faves: Slave to Love - Brian Ferry.
