So since I wasn't really around for much of the 80's I don't know what good 80's music is and I have a strange urge to have way good 80's music...

So now's your chance to totally geek out and admit what you like from the 80's and we won't make fun of you... well at least I won't.

Wow. This was my genre back in the day. Wish I had one of my old notebook covers & I could list a couple hundred bands.

Well, here's a start, but I'm not saying they are good or not. Just stuff I listened to & some I owned.

Talk Talk, The Fixx, Kajagoogoo, Madonna, The Go-Go's, Berlin, Icehouse, Bananarama, Til Tuesday, Genisis, Simple Minds, M, The Buggles, Wall of Voodoo, Eurythmics, Alison Moyet, Yazzoo, YES...
