Re: What is the '80s

Sometimes stylistic trends can find explanation. Perhaps sometimes they can't or it is beyond anyone to do so or, even if it isn't, others could not understand such an explanation.

My only guess is that the 80's were a botched attempt to pre-game the expected changes of the coming millennium. I mean you see a lot of what peoples' idea of space age looking clothes and synthesizer laden music. It seems like maybe in the 60's people wanted to be there and then. In the 80's people wanted to be into next year, to be ahead of the curve. Spiritualism and personal philosophy took a back seat to the consumer culture.

So what did the 80's people think was in the future? computers and robots and space or something? Not too many people predicted the size and scope of the communications revolution. The 80's seems very muddled compared to other decades or mini eras.

Anybody got a guess as to why so many 80's songs are dudes whining about girls that dumped them or songs like begging some girl to stay? You don't hear that much today.

I agree that just because something happened in the 80s doesn't mean it is the 80s.

Re: What is the '80s

One of them had their first number 1 in 1968! (and that's before i got to Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder) and no you cant have ACDC, that's ridiculous, (or the Cure whoever went for them). What next Pink Floyd or The Stones?

I can argue with The Bangles.

Youtube has stopped working on my computer, I'm trying to talk my computer down I fear its feeling a bit suicidal.

Re: What is the '80s

I was going to post the Dire Straits song. But BOOOOO BOOOOO censorship! They cut out the best lines to be PC! I'm putting them back:

See the little ****** with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little ****** got his own jet airplane
That little ****** he's a millionaire


DOH!

Another angle of the 80s



try the entire CD if you have something else to do in parallel that doesnt require too much thinking...and want some moody musical company.

Dire Straights was the worst live concert I have ever been to. Free tickets, but still.

For comparison Mike and the Mechanics came in a distant 24th worst concert.

So you are saying you hate Dire Straits in general, their ability to play live, or that specific show you went to?

They were flat. Quite likely it was a one-time phenomenon and I got unlucky to see them on the wrong night.
