I was never into Billy Bragg (though a great songwriter), Story of the Blues - fantastic (took me ages to find a download of it though). But fav record of the 80s is a toss-up between :

Tears for Fears - MAD WORLD. (The new version made me cringe.)

and

Yazoo - NOBODYS DIARY



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

Moonlight Shadow and Family Man were also top Oldfield tunes!

And as Fiction factory were the first band I saw live (support for OMD in 84 at Manchester Apollo) 'Feels like Heaven' also holds a special place.

"Thorn in my side" is good too....



I jokingly dedicated that record to my ex-wife (whilst we were still married) once. It didn't go down too well with her. Not long afterwards we divorced.

I do deeply regret that joke, but my marriage was as good as over at the time anyway.

At least if you have a bad separation, you can play it.
I still have a folder with mp3:s that I played when I was angry at one of my ex:es.
It had tracks like:

Hole In My Head by Dixie Chicks (I love the phrase "I need you like a hole in my head"
I Never Loved You Anyway by the Corrs
To Think I Used To Love You by Uncle Kracker
Woman In The Wall by The Beautiful South
I'll Sail This Ship Alone also by The Beautiful South
As If by Blaque

It was the easy way to let my anger surface without hitting anyone

I jokingly dedicated that record to my ex-wife (whilst we were still married) once. It didn't go down too well with her. Not long afterwards we divorced.

I do deeply regret that joke, but my marriage was as good as over at the time anyway.



I bet it was well and truely over when she heard that Nigel...

Aint it stange how songs remind you of an ex... I have a few songs, now that I will never ever dance to!


I'm not that fond of 'too late' for that reason Not that I ever dance. Neil knows that....

Some songs I'd laike to dedicate to the ex.......off topic I know but still in the vein of things

My baby is a headf**k by the Wildhearts
She Hates me by Puddle of Mudd
Why do you try so hard to Hate Me by Electric Soft Parade


amongst others.....

I can't say Kajagoogoo ever stoked my fire, but 'too shy' is bearable looking back, Eurythmics were a fine band, Madness were excellent, and the Jam, well, pure class. Down in a tubestation at Midnight is a timeless classic, and still very true today, if you know the words.




I am all the things I regret

Is it true that Limahl worked at the Mr. Andrew Hairotorium?

I got into The Smiths / Morrissey towards the end of the 80s. Some fine song-writing there. I'm hoping to sing some when/if I next perform at the music club - if I can get some sheet music.

It's easier to own them on DVD, that way you can watch them in one giant sitting

Having gone through Buffy, Angel and all Star Trek series plus a number of other TV-series on DVD, I've now bought an old series I watched when I was little, private Turpin. Funny thing I still remember it even though it must have been early eighties when I watched it. Still waiting for Catweazle to be sent.

Only problem with having so many DVDs is where to put them

All the books.

Most of the Buffy`s on DVD and the books.

She`s started recording the Angel`s,so I don`t mind that.

Just bought no 5. Guess they're about 30 pounds here, which is not too much. One of the few series that I buy here in Sweden cause they're cheaper here. Almost always cheaper to buy it from the UK or the US.

Some good stuff rearing their heads here. I like the early Pet shop boys stuff, after the Behaviour album I'm afraid they went a little too bland for me though.

Transvivion Vamp, I really must get those CDs out again, I thought they were great for a Pop-Rock band, Baby I dont Care and Velveteen CD are excellent!!

I have been lucky enough to have met them, once in the 80s and again last year at Andys studios on the OMD Event. They're very nice people and if you do get to meet them I'm sure you'll enjoy it

I'm sure if you ask Neil they might let you join.... you have already shown your mature side in these forums. To be honest I never realised there was an age limit there..
How long to wait til you're 13?

Lots of good songs mentioned.

Apart from those already listed, here are a few of my favourites:
Down Under by Men At Work
Smooth Operator by Sade
Spring Fever by Mezzoforte

I could go on forever


Know what you mean! "Down Under" is a great song, for one. The odd thing is, there was so much Cr*p in the charts at the time, it's only looking back you think yes, there were some great songs out then...

I think that was Milli Vanilli, not SP.

Neil means that it was someone else singing on the record, but they said it was them - that's misrepresentation

I have a big list of bands I like so heres some of them, OMD (they come on top), Madness, Kate Bush, Altered Images, Dead or Alive, Bananarama, Mike Oldfield, Eurythmics, Kylie Minogue, one song from The Hooters, ABBA, Dire Straits, The Police, Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Big Country (a good Scottish band), Kraftwerk, Fleetwood Mac, Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds, Adam & The Ants, Queen and Roxette. Now thats just some of them, but I can't remember the rest

Sorry about the big list, but to cut a long story short, that song was done by Spandau Ballet, like alot of 80's bands (but they can't come above my favourite band that I play every night, thats right OMD) and 80's songs, but I can't remember most of them

Some 80s bands I collected through the years (I mean ... I have their entire backcatalogue).
I'm so into the 80s stuff that I can't select just one song.
Maybe it would be BLUE MONDAY by NEW ORDER, but ask me again tomorrow.  

COCTEAU TWINS
CURE
DEAD CAN DANCE
DEPECHE MODE
MIKE OLDFIELD
NEW ORDER / JOY DIVISION
NITS
SPLIT ENZ / CROWDED HOUSE / TIM FINN
STRANGLERS

And I forgot something... oh right ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK

I know that , but I still love him when he was in the 80's...if you know what I'm trying to say....I quite like the band Bananarama, though they did take songs from other bands and used them, and I also like a rock band ZZ Top.......Anyone heared of them?

Yes DS are very 80s. They're OK - the music feels sort of geared to the chunky hi-fi systems of the times, though - can be a bit samey.

I have just got the Rumours CD with the extra bonus disc, to supplement my original vinyl. Interesting, but not a must. I think Dreams is my favourite FM track.

Mmmm.......Andy and Paul with those beards. The mind boggles

Yes they did a UK television show with OMD in 1980.
The band got interested in using synths after they saw OMD playing them.

And look what happened: 1983 Eliminator and 1985 Afterburner were a mix of muddy Texan rock and spacey synths.
Brilliant albums which I would like to recommand, especially 1983 Eliminator.

I quite like Queen, they were a really good band. The three members of Queen, toured as Queen, but Paul Rogers was the lead singer.......It was a one off concert. There was a programme on about Freddy Mercury sometime last week I think and I missed it.......I wanted to see it, but I had some housework to do

I quite like Big Country, the scottish band, I wonder what happened to them. They did some great songs, like, In a Big Country and Fields of Fire. I really don't know what happened to them and I wonder they are abck together, to do some concerts

Yes CROWDED HOUSE did Weather with you, but it's a 1991 track.
So it doesn't count here , although CROWED HOUSE was a late 80s early 90s band.

My dad has or had some queen albums on record, but when he got mariied to my mum, she took them all and become a Queen fan, and she loved Paul Rogers, but thats another story. Now, through my mum and dad, I quite like Queen, and I took my dad's CD of their Greatest Hits. He wants it back, but I still have it

my favorite rock band of all time was BIG COUNTRY & as stuart adamson committed suicide because of his long time troubles with alcoholism already almost 5 years ago by now , i was really shocked  ... & i've listened to one of my favorite ballads of bc called "troubled man" ( what a prophetic song that was !   ) over & over again @ that time !  

here are the lyrics to that song :

"Troubled Man" by Big Country

Lyrics and music written by Stuart Adamson ( R. i. P. )


Once my dreams came true
Once but not for me
I told them all to you
But dreams are never clear

If I must be alone
Then let it be forever
For it takes a troubled man
To know the freedom of his fear

No longer will I look
For what can never happen
No deeper can I long
For what I know is dear

If I must live my life
In darkness and in shadow
For it takes a troubled man
To know the freedom of his fear

If words could fade away
And strangers go unanswered
Let friendships all be gone
And no acquaintance near

For I would rather die
Than love you for this moment
For it takes a troubled man
To know the freedom of his fear

I think Iím in trouble
Once again you come to me
I think Iím in trouble
Take this troubled man from me ...

I have never heared of this song.


it's indeed a lil' rarity , because it was only the b-side of their - imho , of course ! - worst single ever called "heart of the world" from 1990 - iirc ...
not many people - not even all bc fans !   - know this wonderful , but also very sad song , which is indeed a shame , as it's one of the best rock ballads ever written - also imho , of course !

Quoted from TheAviator

New Order - Ceremony


yeah ... that's a really good choice , as it also marks the end of joy division ( because this songs was actually still written together with ian curtis ) & the beginning of ( the ) new order ( because it was their very 1st single ) !

in my all time favorite list of great 80s songs there's one song i currently like to listen to a lot again ... & it's "sleepwalk" by ultravox , which was their very 1st single with midge ure as the new lead singer & guitarist then !  

but i simply could pick jus' one song - no matter from which band , sorry !

If I absolutely have to make a choice for one song, it would probably be a straight choice between:

We Take Mystery (To Bed) - Gary Numan

Temptation - Heaven 17

Way, way too many class tracks to choose from though...

I can understand that, I just have this thing for the 'lead us from temptation, lead us not into temptation - oh!' vocals that peak in the last third of the song.  Heaven (pun intended...).

We could listen not to many bands here (especially in early 80s)- access wasn't allowed and it was really very difficult to get cassettes from abroad.

I liked PET SHOP BOYS very much.

A small story.
We- girls, were in love with MODERN TALKING. We knew SHERY, SHERY LADY (sorry, spelling ) by heart and sung it very often. But then we found out, that song was ABOUT A DOG!!! No word about MODERN TALKING more! Big love was over.

I don't usually have a favourite song - because there are just too many. However, I shall cite Visage's 'Fade to Grey' as the definitive electronic piece of the decade, that operned the door for all the other (wave of electronic artists to follow.) Also, Midge Ure (a founder member of Visage) and his main line band - Ultravox's 'Passionate Reply' a brilliant lyrical / musical blend, as electroinic and atmospehric as you can get - underpinned by the guitar sound / playing of Midge...

Depeche Mode is also one of my all time favorite bands. Bit of trivia here. By the end of the 1980's Depeche Mode had the most top fourty hits for a band who never had a number one single (in the UK), making them the most successful British Band of the decade. Second was the Stranglers (still together - different line up) with 28 (top forty hits in the UK) from 1977 - 1990.

It's too hard to have a single favourite - BUT if I had to pin one down to sum up the 80s I'd probably say Blue Monday by New Order!

It's not (musically) a great song really, but it always reminds me of 1983: my first serious girlfriend, going to a youth club in Kirkby-in-Ashfield on Friday nights, leaving school, a long hot summer.

Great, carefree times......

By the way, does anyone else remember these obscure little gems?

The safety dance - Men without hats
The last film - Kissing the pink
Just got lucky - The Jo-Boxers
Don't tell me - Blancmange
King in a catholic style - China crisis
No-one driving - John Foxx
Dancing tight - Galaxy

These ones aren't by any means favourites, but they're pretty worthy. I'm listening to most of them at the mo!

ok, i'm going to start with Lament by Ultravox. I saw them live in Leicester on their final tour and they were amazing. Lament just seemed to stand out from the rest - so atmospheric and sort of spooky as well, a real spine tingler.

Safety Dance was one of the first 12" singles I bought (Blue Monday was the first I think).

Just had quick look through this thread ... impossible to answer of course, especially without mentioning an OMD track ...but why is it that no-one ever mentions The Human League!?

I'll have to put one in for them and say : Love Action (I Believe in Love)  

..obviously I will have changed my mind by tomorrow ....

more Human League phew..thank goodness for that! ... Being Boiled is technically 70s, although if you refer to the 'Travelogue' version (much better IMHO) then OK..it's 80's!!  

then again it depends what you mean by '80s band' I suppose
