Hall of Fame
As the title says, this is for fans of 80s new wave, synthpop, britpop, eurodisco, etc..to discuss fav bands and songs.... and the good old days.
That's an excellent list right there. Talk Talk was probably my all time favorite.Ah, the 80s...my carefree high school days. My username says it all...I actually created an iTunes genre in my music library called "80s New Wave". I could go on and on about all my old faves from New Order, Yaz/Yazoo, Flock of Seagulls, Dominatrix, Ebn Ozn, Bronski Beat, Joy Division, Tears for Fears, Alphaville, Talk Talk, Thomas Dolby, and the Psychadelic Furs...Good times they were.
Cool, thanks. Have you heard their new stuff? Girl Panic from the new CD is really good.
I still listen to the Cars and Blondie. Blondie's good summertime music, and there are very few bands that can rhyme the word "sacroiliac."Since the OP included synth-pop and related genres, I go with Berlin, The Cars, Blondie and Tears for Fears as some of my favorites from the post-punk era.
I agree about the True Faith cover, but he has explained that he wanted to do something completely different since it was a one-off fundraiser. I do not like the excessive use of the vocoder, but for some reason I like the video. It seems to fit together somehow.George Michael is a great singer and has done some good covers but he butchered New Order's True Faith.
Duran Duran is still going strong and I love John Taylor's bass lines.
Has anyone noticed Nu Shooz' 'I can't wait' has been copied by some **** hip hop artist?
