Personally I love Rap and Hip Hop aswell, but 80's music aswell just blew me away, I think it's great, especially better than the new pop groups and rock bands we have today, I have so many i'll just start off with a view of my favourite tracks.

 

 

 

 

 

and then theres MJ, and many other guys that are not as popular but still produce good tracks...

 

Sponsors of Miami Vice...

Good topic, Sanjeem icon14.gif Merry Christmas to you by the way biggrin.gif

 

Man, i just love the music from Rocky movies and i'm a Bon Jovi fan too smile.gif

 

It's hard to select a favorite track from the 80's, cause almost all my fav tracks are fom the 80's biggrin.gif

 

There are just too many great 80's artists... including Jackson, Springsteen, Madonna, Phil Collins, Roxette, Queen, Dire Straits, ZZ Top and many more tounge.gif

 

Even Rap music was good in the 80's... N.W.A is my fav

 

 

 

"Crockett's Theme" by Jan Hammer is one of my personal favorites of all time in the 80's... you can almost put the entire 80's in it cool.gif

Well, that one. And...

Johnny Hates Jazz - Me and my foolish heart

 

 

Simple Minds - Don't You Forget About Me

 

 

Belinda Carlisle - Leave a Light On

 

 

Aside from Crockett's Theme, that's my top three right there. The 80's was a wonderful time for music. Great topic!

Forget about me simple minds is brilliant love it!

 

I don't even know if it's right for a 15 year old boy who's childhood actually started in the mid 1990's is normal liking 80's music, guess it's a free world though.

 

I also like these songs here

 

 

 

And for some strange reason this song, reminds me of waiting for a star to fall, and also i love the instrumentals for some reason (from Harold and Kumar aswell)

You really shouldn't give a crap about who thinks what is normal and what isn't.

 

 

 

I should watch that movie again.

Its more normal then you might think. And besides a lot of music released today is influenced by the Eighties style.

I find 80s alternative quite interesting, gives me a vibe similar to early 90s alternative.

 

A Beatles cover, but still.

Favorite 80's metal album: Ride the Lightning

 

What I love about 80s music is that in most of the songs, the backgrounds have echoes (especially drums) which gives more depth to the music. A couple years ago Dream Theater released a best of, with earlier tracks such as Pull Me Under, remastered into a more "modern" sound. The result to me is really bland and actually makes the songs less epic.

(Yes I know Pull Me Under is from 90s but you get the idea)

 

Also, synth rock band The Birthday Massacre's latest album has a strong 80's vibe.

Mr Vice City

I love 80's music. The best decade for music in my opinion. Some many great and memorable tunes. I don't know what is but nothing before or after the 80's comes close for me. I remember the first time I heard 80's music was playing Vice City and I was blown away. I have so many favourite tracks and albums it would be impossible to name them all but a top 10 would like this:

 

Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane

Toto - Africa

a-ha- Take On Me

Jermaine Stewart - We Don't Have To Take Our Cloths Off

Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal

Stan Bush - The Touch

Scandel - The Warrior

The Human League - Don't You Want Me

Spandu Ballet - To Cut A Long Story Short

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax

My name is The Killa and this is the greatest thread on GTAforums.com, or your money back. Actually just give me your money.

 

80's will forever remain the best music period of all time. Ever, forever. I love it so deeply, it's just beyond anything I could describe.

 

Everyone has linked my favorite ones, so I'll do another one mine:

 

And yes, Vice City is my favorite game.
