Monday Music Moves Me in the 1980s

Photobucket

This week's theme over at Xmas Dolly is 1980's music.

This was tough one, as I have tons of favourites 1980 songs to share from my teenage years.

I tried to find a mix of different styles of music that I remember from the massive shoulder pads and teased-permed hair days....

AH Sinead - gosh, she has disappeared. That must be one of the most emotional songs ever

I'm going to add some of these to my playlist. Sinead had a beautiful voice. I wonder why she fell off the radar.


PS Cute Dafties you have over there!

What? No REO Speedwagon?

(All the videos are blocked at work, so maybe there is and I just can't see it.)

I love every single one of your choices! Nothing truly compares to the music of the 80's, does it? :)

Rachel said...

Gotta tell you, I love the, "Shut up I wear heels bigger than your dick". I just noticed that. You are awesome!

Run DMT said...

I loved all your picks. I love, love The Cure and The Smiths. I've been reliving my youth listening to 1st Wave on XM. Good stuff!

Hazel said...

Oh the 80s.... I was a teenager then and what a great time with music that was. My faves among your choices are the first two - We Are the World and Nothing Compares. And whoa! One Night in Bangkok! *big smile*

Mike Smith said...

Did you know that Every Day is Like Sunday was written when Morrisey was playing in Kilmarnock...?

If I Could Escape . . . said...

Those were some great picks!! Loved them.

Lucy said...

You really did have a hard time picking:)

I forgot about all the great singers that did Live Aid, gosh that was great!!

Sinead O'Connor, I loved her. She just wrote a blog post, you should check it out.

Gosh, I was on your page forever listening and going back in time.

Love your picture :)

rebecca said...

Xmas Dolly said...

By popular demand we are bringing the 80's back in November! Woo Hoo! Everyone loved it & these choices are stupendous! Love Sinead choice & all of the others! Thanks for playing along & Pass the Word my friend & have a great day!

The '80's are dead...long live the '80's!!!

I still listen to Dead or Alive, that entire album is great. Also The Cure, Human League and Sinead. I could never get my head around Morrissey though...his voice is just too fuckin' morbid and monotonous.

And you are the only other person I know who can identify with The Cult...absolutely brilliant rock band. Their "best of" album, "For Rockers, Ravers, Lovers and Sinners" showcased their career magnificently.

That Sinead O'Connor song I played over and over when I was going through my troubled times.
I love her voice and most of her songs.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane Gillian!
Cheers
