Now I feel the need to follow Gary Numan with some Kraftwerk.

I heard this one on the radio last December:

 

I like the instrumental and chord progression.

 

This late 80's but an awesome Spacesynth track:

While I'm not a fan of Level 42, this catchy number did manage to find its way onto my iPod sometime back.

I love 80's. Ever since my parents would watch 80's hits countdown on TV every Sunday, I got into it.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lu3VTngm1F0

Faith-George Michael. I know it might seem odd for a guy to like George Michael songs, I only know females that love him but this song, always cheers me up.

 

Run to you-Bryan Adams.

Wow. What can I say? This is the only song I know from him but I absolutely love the beat and chorus. Only song I know by him but I will listen to some more.

 

 

Living On a Prayer-Bon Jovi.

 

Will definitely list more later.

My wife was just singing this song and it took us a minute to remember who did it.

 

I'll be surprised if this is the first time it is posted in this thread.

Human League - Don't you want me

 

I've loved that song since I was a kid, but I've been listening to it a lot over the last month. I remember a couple of weeks ago, me and my friends were drunkenly singing it in the car on the way to a club.

 

I was at my archery club on friday, and from out of nowhere, I had this sudden urge to listen to The Safety Dance. It was the first thing I put on when I got home and I must've listened to it about twenty times since.

 

I suspect it may have been posted already but here's the Adam Jensen edition for lulz:

'Gloria' performed by Laura Branigan.

You guys might remember the iconic 'Self Control' from Vice City.

Yep, my favorite song from Laura along with 'Gloria'.

You got any Laura B. in the jukebox, Trip? tounge.gif

Wow, Laura was beautiful and talented women, and she was smokin' hot in that clip!

Silly question tounge2.gif ...of course Gloria is on the jukebox. 200 selections is a lot to fill when trying to just fill it with various 'hits'.

 

You all have to forgive my memory when it comes to this thread. I'm willing to bet this has already been posted. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if I posted it here already. So at the risk of repeating myself...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think The Kinks were one of those bands that managed to transition into the 80s well too.

Rough weekend and the rough part hasn't ended even though the work week has started.

 

Sitting here drunk and just switched over to my 80s collection - this just came on...thought I'd share it.

Scorpions, yup, great songs... 'Still Loving You' - one of my personal favorites from the Scorps.

 

 

 

'Love Kills'.

From the 1988 film "A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master" soundtrack album.

Not sure I recall seeing this posted yet. Naturally, I could be wrong.

I recently posted this in the 'rate the song' thread, but I think it deserves a dupe in this here 80s thread.

Edit: Here are some actual 80s tracks that I like.

 

I've heard this one on TV a couple of times, I think I may have "fallen in love" with Phil:

 

 

I have almost forgot about this tune:

 

 

This one is probably my favorite from the soundtrack of Vice City:

I like the "new" 80's sound in some of today's tracks, but I think that we should just keep this topic with the real 80's music.

yeah, lets keep this to traditional 80s music. Not really sure how you can class something that didn't happen in the 80s as '80s' anyway. There were still tons of different styles of music in the 80s.

 

How 'bout some Pop Muzik?

The overall sound and style of the tracks I have posted matches stuff that was released in the 80s. Synthpop for example, was a genre that appeared approx. in 1980. I can make a song that uses the same instruments that were used back then, what would be the difference? That's kind of like arguing that classical music that was made after the 19th century isn't classical music.

 

Don't tell me you listen to 80s music just because it was released in that decade? I'm pretty sure most people just like the style of the music\sounds from back then, which can be\is easily reproduced today.

It may have the 80's sound in them, but the music is not from the 80's!

This topic is for music from the 1980's.

Music that was made and released/performed live between 1980 to 1989.

What's so hard to understand about that?

Those songs you posted were not made in the 80's!!!

Oh man...

 

This IS NOT some " 80's sounding music that was made in 2010's" or whatever topic, pal.

 

 

Don't tell me you listen to 80s music just because it was released in that decade?

Huh? If you meant what I think you did, then yes, yes I do.

This topic is for the music that was made and released/performed live in that decade ONLY.

Like Trip said here:

Trip know's what he's talking about.

Man, you can't really be that dumb. "What's the difference?"

 

The difference is that you made it in 2012, not in the 1980's!

 

If you can't get this through your head now, then it's beyond me, man.

Wow.

 

---

 

Shall we keep on with the topic, Trip? tounge2.gif

You know, posting song that were actually made in the 80's.

 

I'm sure that this ones already been posted, but just to keep it on topic.

'Summer Madness' performed by Kool & the Gang.

Great song.

OK, I'm going to ignore your whole attitude right there.

 

Are you telling me that the only reason you like 80s music is because it was released between 1980 and 1989? It has nothing to do with the style of the music?

 

Because most people I know like the style of the 80s and I do believe that's what this topic is also about.

Ignoring my attitude?

Well in that case you propably missed the whole point so I'll have to start pretty much all over again.

 

I like the 80's music because it was released between 1980 to 1989?

You're not making any sense here...

Yes, yes I do. Because that is the 80's music right there.

A song that was made in 2010's or whatever is not an 80's song so it does not belong in the "Favorite 80's tracks?" topic.

 

 

Do you see other people posting 90's, 2000's or 2010's song here because they have the 80's sound, style or whatever in them?

No. No you don't.

 

You are not posting any songs made in the 90's, 2000's or 2010's in to this topic just because they have the 80's style or sound like the 80's.

Make your own topic. You know, "Favourite 80's sounding tracks made in the 2010's", okay?

This topic is for music made in the 80's ONLY.

 

If a song sounds like an 80's song or has the same style and it is made in the 2010's, IT'S NOT AN 80'S SONG!!!

It's a 2010's song and it should be posted in a topic where it belongs. Not here.

 

 

Does anybody like "80s music" that wasn't made in the 80s?

Pal, you said it yourself in your first post so why do you keep arguing?

Those song are 2010's song and they DEFINITELY don't belong in this topic.

I don't really care how 80's they might sound, but they are not made and released or performed in the 1980's which this topic is about.

I perfectly understood everything you said the first time. If that's the only criteria for this topic, I could post some stuff you probably wouldn't even dream to be from the 80s, but it was in fact made in the 80s. So basically, this is just like a general music topic, you could post literally anything that was made in that time period?! Like really obscure sh*t.

 

I'll edit the problematic post and add some actual 80s tracks.

Don't worry about it too much. It's all cool.

 

I hear ya on posting obscure stuff. I hated the 80s and most of what I post here are just some of the one-hit-wonders that pop into my head. If I followed my heart I would be posting the stuff I actually enjoyed during the time.

 

Here is an example.

I grew up in the 90s and 00s but 80s music was definitely the best decade for music. It was actually because of the GTA games that I have such a diverse taste in music now. I certainly reckon that V will feature an 80s station, and I'm telling you all now, I definitely reckon the song Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel will feature, dunno why. Just have a feeling..
