Getting lots of hits because of this post. Would be really cool if some of you checked out a few of the songs from my Current Favorites list on the right, because those songs are just as good as (or maybe even better than) the ones below!!!!
Yesterday I found the following songs at Myspace and I couldn't help thinking that they (don't laugh) would create a perfect soundtrack to "my" 80's and teenage years. Don't hold it against me, because I actually used to listen to these songs!
+ OMD - Enola Gay
Still an all-time favorite (song+artist).
+ Ultravox - The Voice
Used to listen to these guys a lot back then.
+ A Flock Of Seagulls - Space Age Love Song
A new remix, but still very, very good.
+ Tears For Fears - Working Hour
Those saxophones are (still) great.
+ Howard Jones - Things Can Only Get Better
That dude used to be my hero. I was a member of his fan club and I wanted my hair cut like his! Doh!
+ Bronski Beat - Hit That Perfect Beat
Sounded a lot better 20 years ago!
+ Yazoo - Situation
Wish they had released more than just two albums.
+ Erasure - A Little Respect
I'm impressed that these guys are still around, but they have never been close to matching The Innocents.
+ Eddie Murphy - Party All The Time
I'm serious! We used to dance to it at parties and I even bought the 7"!!!!
+ Killing Joke - Love Like Blood
Bizarre! How can you listen to Eddie Murphy when this is one of your favorite songs of all-time?
+ Thompson Twins - Doctor Doctor
See Bronski Beat though it's 22 years ago with this one.
+ Pet Shop Boys - West End Girls
Thought the song was so cool. I bought every 12" version I could get my hands on.
