The 1980`s: Like, Grody to the Max, Dude, I`m Sure, Totally

And I thought the slang of the 1970`s was bad. At least the 1980`s had "good music". Now who are those dudes singing the background vocals again? Must be some group of guys that know how to harmonize quite well together.  Wink And Darlene Love.   Cool

Track: 'Good Music'---Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

In October, my partner and I have tickets to see ELO. Beyond hyped!
Anyway, as a band, I feel their 80's output has some much better moments than it's given credit for!

Wow. October----I hope you can handle the wait!

Bubs at PSF pointed me in the direction of XTC, a band I know little about. Skylarking (said
to be their best album) is available in a single video on YouTube, so I'm going through it.
Track #9, "Big Day" really made my ears prick up. Those guitar figures, and so much more...

I love originality in songs, as a result this is one of my favourite songs of all time!

Written by Mike Oldfield after being on a plane which was very dangerously close to crashing in the midst of a storm. He learned the aeronautical terminology used in the song while learning to fly to help conquer the fear brought about by the previous flight.

Useless fact; this is one of very, very few songs where Mike sings lead, mostly through a vocoder, but all the male vocals are him.

I was only made aware of this haunting 1988 UK top twenty
hit by Londonbeat a matter of years ago by davek1049:

I first heard this album in the early '80s. In fact I taped all the music, leaving out the "talk tracks". These
days I'm revisiting it intact. And what a stunning album it is too.  You'd think Robert Fripp would dwarf
the other players, excellent though they are, in terms of chops but it all hangs together wonderfully well.

I'm constantly confusing Cocteau Twins with Thompson Twins. I'm not familiar with the music
of the first-named band but I remember at least one big hit from the Thompsons. I also recall
they took an age to get set up at Live Aid. From the previous year, this is "Doctor! Doctor!":
