Re: What is the '80s

to me the 80's are:


musically:

chicago with peter cetera (70's chicago was awesome)

paula abdul

rick astley (not that famous, but of course "rick roll". his music though captures the 80's perfectly.

stevie wonder's "i just called to say i love you"... horrible song by one of greatest artists of all-time...

duran duran

"sucky" david bowie era. again, horrible vs. earlier work.

phil collins horribleness vs. earlier genesis...

lionel richie - even though i loved his music and still do

madonna - used to like her stuff... now i think it's very mediocre and somewhat tedious

i do not associate the police, U2 or michael jackson with the 80's. that music would be awesome in any decade.

to me, mc hammer and big hair bands isn't 1980's even if chronologically it fits.

business: LBO's, greed....

politics: thatcher/reagan "sunrise in america"

TV: horrible stuff like cosby and family ties (not sure how much family ties was chronologically 80's vs. 90's but it's classic 80's type stuff..... cheers would be popular in any decade)..

it's funny that to me i don't think i could remotely do this for the 1990's and 2000's. i think if you are fairly intelligent and reach a certain age that you listen/watch what you like regardless of what is being offered to you.

Re: What is the '80s

Synthesiser documentary (giorgio moroder and kraftwerk onwards)



Quote:
Synthpop has received considerable criticism and even prompted hostility among musicians and in the press. It has been described as "anaemic"[119] and "soulless".[120] Synthpop's early steps, and Gary Numan in particular, were also disparaged in the British music press of the late 1970s and early 1980s for their German influences[16] and characterised by journalist Mick Farren as the "Adolf Hitler Memorial Space Patrol".[121] In 1983, Morrissey of The Smiths stated that "there was nothing more repellent than the synthesizer".[9]
Quote:
By the mid-1980s, synthpop had helped establish the synthesizer as a primary instrument in mainstream pop music.[6] It also influenced the sound of many mainstream rock acts, such as Bruce Springsteen, ZZ Top and Van Halen.[126] It was a major influence on house music, which grew out of the post-disco dance club culture of the early 1980s as some DJs attempted to make the less pop-oriented music that also incorporated influences from Latin soul, dub, rap music, and jazz.[127]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthpop

'Real' instruments make a comeback towards the 90s, you could say,


imo...not being at odds with modern electronic music. Good modern electronic music, not cheesy pop that's played on the radio by household name electronic artists..

Don't look, just listen



The superficial of the '80s is too obvious

Re: What is the '80s

Not a bad touch-up. ^

Just remembered that there used to be an 80's night in the local night club every Friday, about ten years ago. The night wasn't complete until the DJ spun this baby. A time machine, to go back to a time where it was like going back in time in a time machine would be nice tonight.

Re: What is the '80s

Glad I found this. Must be representative of the 80s.

Awesome, much harder and more raw than the studio version. Incidentally, Prince wrote 'Nothing compare to you' for her. I only found that out years ago.
