What did you like musically in the 80s and what did you dislike?
Loved the New Wave movement and corresponding one hit wonders.
Tear for Fears (my favorite), Thompson Twins, B52s, Human League, Simply Red, Flock of Seagulls, Billy Idol and so on.
Didn't care for the hair bands, YUCK
this song brings back so many 80s memories:
I’m with you Doc... loved all those bands.. played a lot of their songs as well in the club scene... back then I was playing a Prophet 5 direct to our massive sound system and guitar through a Jim Kelley.....yes, in 84, things started changing.....What did you like musically in the 80s and what did you dislike?
For me, I liked the 'new wave' stuff and the analog synth songs (pre DX7). Thomas Dolby, The Fixx, Til Tuesday, The Motels, Tears for Fears, The Police and way too many other bands to mention. There were also a lot of great 'one hit wonders' in that era!
Around 1984, things slowly started getting funky
