Used to listen to FM radio every Sunday afternoon and record my favs into cassettes! I was listening to a lot of music then, think I was in the 1st Form when my mum bought me a 'better' radio cassette recorder for my birthday..

My favourites are Foreigner, Duran Duran, Simply Red, A-Ha, Culture Club, Human League (is this 80s band?) and some others.. :)

Ya like Depeche Mode? Only one song I could remember..'Master & Servant'. Think they were the pioneers in electronic keyboards, synthesisers and guitars..but I don't listen to them as much..they have survived the decades up to now? cool..

wow, quite a spectrum you are listing here, but one thing 4 sure, depeche mode is one of the best bands of the 80's. didn't know that they are still "alive and kicking"...hey, also in your list.
their sound is still unique until today, like two rocks or a spinning wood-wheel as instruments.
one typical thing in the 80's were those bands with one or two hits and never hear them again, just got one in mind "you spin me round round baby right round like a record baby...."

(too many to list :D ) ... true, but never forget OMD !!

man how i love my good old black vinyl records .....

Anyone here knows Adam and the Ants. I used to gila-gila fanatic them. Their logo, ant music for sex people and sex music for ant people. I even went to their concert in 1981. I copied their style and really really crazy about Adam Ant. Wonder what happen to them.

I also like Toyah, Spandau Ballet and some other british pop. Later my favourite was duran-duran. got millions of their pic and poster. Crazy about John Taylor too. Spend a lot of money buying Smash Hits and No. 1.

Now, I am a mother of two. Could nt even believe that I use to be that gila-gila. That was the good old time. No worries.....

05-11-2005, 01:50 PM
Please Please Tell Me Now. Is There Something I Should Know? :p

I was as crazy about Nick Rhodes as you were about Andy Taylor. But funny thing is none of my friends were hots for Simon Le Bon...could it be he was just a little plump then.. :p tho he had an attractive voice and leads em' all. Looks count huh? :D

Do ya know, Duran Duran has put on a large-scale 2005 concert tour of Japan, America, Canada, and the UK, and at the same time has released Astronaut ~ 'Reach Up For The Sunrise'. Anyone likes it? Same kinda Duran rhythm..
Sigh..why didn't they come to M'sia.. :o

And not forgetting UB40's Red Red Wine!

Tears For Fears too? Love their sophistication and infectious (a little jazzed) rhythm in 'Seeds Of Love' and the cool catchy 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World'..

Yes, no discussion on the music of the 80s should go without Tears for Fears. They are one of my favourites. Let's not forget also Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Madonna. All three were in their prime back then.

My 80s favourites:

- Heaven 17 (and the other BEF bands like Human League)
- Haircut 100
- Yes (well contrary to many orthodox Yes-fans I actually like their "Owner of a Lonely Heart"-era)
- Orange Juice
- Squeeze (with Paul Carrack)
- Alison Moyet / Yazoo
- Eurythmics
- Orchestral Manoevres in the Dark
- Ultravox
- Depeche Mode
- The Cure
- KLF
- Frankie Goes to Hollywood
- Simple Minds
- Psychedelic Furs
- The Passage

80s was also the time when Genesis went from a brilliant prog band to a commercial spinner; Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford (Mike & The Mechanix) went solo, but the band still held together (exept of course for Peter Gabriel who went his own interesting way).

...and of course Rick Wakemans return to Yes and the brilliant Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman & Howe (ABWH) album...

Many other 70s faves were also 80s faves, e.g. David Bowie, Yes (again), The Clash.

80s were also the era when I as a teenager manged to see the Rolling Stones live 7 times!!!! Eternal thanks to my parents for not handcuffing me or locking in my mind...

Think they were the pioneers in electronic keyboards, synthesisers and guitars..

Sorry not really. The best known pioneers in electronic keyboards were Rick Wakeman (David Bowie, Yes, Strawbs etc) and Keith Emerson (The Nice, ELP). This happened in the late 60s and early 70s.

Rick Wakeman, specifically, was the inventor of the multi-keyboard playing. Before him, no one had played several keyboards at the same time, something which every little function or hotel band does nowadays but which was a great thing back then.

However the early 80s bands were pioneers in digital programming of electronic keyboards, e.g. Howard Jones, Vince Clarke, Larry Fast, Brian Eno as well as Depeche Mode.

i remember 'domo arigato mr roboto, im killroy, im killroy!!!'

Machine or mannequin - secret
secret - I've got a secret

With parts made in Japan - secret
secret - I've got a secret

I am the Modren Man.

I've got a secret
I've been hiding under my skin

My heart is human
my blood is boiling
my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely
don't be surprised

I'm just a man who needed someone
and comewhere to hide
To keep me alive - just keep me alive

Somewhere to hide to keep me alive.

I'm not a robot without emotions - I'm not what you see

I've come to help you with your problems
so we can be free.
I'm not a Hero
I'm not a Saviour
forget what you know

I'm just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control

Beyond my control - we all need control.
I need control - we all need control.
I am the Modern Man - secret
secret - I've got a secret

Who hides behind a mask - secret
secret - I've got a secret

So no one else can see - secret
secret - I've got a secret

My true identity.
Domo Arigato

Thank you very much
Mr. Roboto

I main love was the british band. Toyah, sioxsie and the banshees and that lady singer singing wuthering height or something. Kate bush I think her name was.

I used to sleep with adam ant and john taylor photos under my pillow. Hoping that they will appear in my dream. But I was really a fanatic then.

i think back then I seldom heard american singer. Even when madonna was first in the scene, I still prefer anything and british. I was lucky then because I used to spend my holiday there. My sister use to live there and keep my supply with all those british thing.

Correcto Sly! Used to like Milli Vanilli too and it's a pity they got stripped off their only grammy for not singing any of their breakthru album 'Girl You Know It's True'
They were lip-syncers. Anyhow, I love their music..a combination of (American) Rap rhythms with Eurodance melodies. In fact, some of melodic influence in today's hip-hop may be attributed to Milli Vanilli's influence.
Luka is a sad lyriced song huh...maybe i should post it for remembrance. Good song Sly. (is there such a word as lyriced ar?) :p

Yahoo Music also has the Big 80's Music station. Artists and song lists is also listed.

Anyone remember Anita Baker? Also Kim Wilde, Sheena Easton, Mel & Kim, Sam Fox etc?
Then there's this song 'I Like Chopin', forgotten who the singer is liao...

Yea, during the 80's, Springsteen, Dire Straits, Corey Hart, Bryan Adams, 'Cougar' Mellencamp ruled US airwaves along with MJ, Prince et al. Pop, rock and soft rock were the genres. Remember American Top 40s or Billboard's Top 40s?
But the airwaves in UK were more electropop and punk based. Bands like Duran2, ELO, OMD, U2, Billy Idol, David Bowie, Adam Ant et al rules. And Top of the Pops was THE definitive pop charts there.

Who can forget Giorgio Moroder and his 'Electric Dreams'?

And someone wanted to know who sang the 'You spin me right round baby, right round like a record...' song? Its Dead or Alive.
Cheap Trick, Bad English were pop rock bands that popularised the pop ballad genre.

But I guess the 80s was the era that launched and popularised many of these genres mentioned, so thats why the heady 80s saw a music 'explosion' that we grew to love til today.

Todays teenagers would most likely grow up with BS and BSB - Britney Spears and Back Street Boyz. :D

A person who enjoyed the music of the 60s and 70s, mostly love ballads and good lyrics and memorable tunes, I found it hard to grasp and enjoy the music of the 80s. The 80's synthesizers and big bang echo drums are unbearable. The drum especially is what turns me off. I can't help imagining how wonderful some 80's tunes could be if they had a real drummer and cut the synth.

But did enjoy some of the singers like Harry Connick, Kenny Rogers, Air Supply, Grover Washinghton, Cassandara Wilson and few others

Err...you might have NOT been dancing to the 80s' grooves...IF ya can't remember this...by Shannon:D

We started dancing and love put us into a groove
As soon as we started to move
The music played while our bodies displayed through the dance
Then love picked us up for romance
I thought it was clear
The plan was we would share this feeling just between ourselves
But when the music changed the plan was rearranged
He went to dance with someone else
We started dancing and love put us into our groove
But now he's with somebody new
What does love want me to do
Love said..

Let the music play, he won't get away
Just keep the groove and then he'll come back to you again
Let it play
Let the music play, he won't get away
This groove he can't ignore, he won't leave you anymore

He tried pretending our dance is just a dance but I see
He's dancing his way back to me
Yes he discovered we are truly lovers
Magic from the very start
Cause love just can't we prove
And anytime we move
And even though we danced apart
So we started dancing and love put us into our groove
As soon as we started to move, as soon as we started to move
Love said..

He tried pretending our dance is just a dance but I see
He's dancing his way back to me, he's dancing his way back to me
Love said..

Wow! Dahsyat lah you all for the 80s list.

I was 16 when the 80s music picked up in mid 80s. The artist that made me listen to pop music was ........... Michael Jackson i.e. when he won the Grammy awards. That is when the whole 'British Invasion of Pop Music' came to USA.

From there on I start to know various artists i.e. Culture Club, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, Tears for Fears, Aswad, BROS (twin blond band with a crewcut), MAXI Priest, UB40, Police, Paul Young, Limahl, Bananarama, Simply Red, George Michael, Susan Vega, U2, Enya, T'pau and others.

Each of the above artist brings back specific memories. Cool nostalgia.

I do have some of their mp3s and VCDs. Those are precious collections. If you have winamp, turn on the radio section and stream the 80s selection.

Long Live the 80s... The 80s pop music may sound stupid at that time but if you listen to them again now, it was as good as it got.

Eerrr, Wacky is American.

"The British invasion" is usually referring to the onslaught of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, The Cream, The Yardbirds, Derek & the Dominoes, The Moody Blues, King Crimson etc etc etc during the mid to late 60s.

Then there was a second and third British invasion in the 70s made up by people like David Bowie, Elton John, Faces/Rod Stewart, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Slade, Yes, Genesis, ELP, T Rex, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Queen, Black Sabbath etc followed by the punk wave of Sex Pistols, The Clash, Ramones, The Jam.

What you're referring to is the fourth wave which commenced in 80s. The Human League, Eurythmics, Heaven 17, Tears for Fears and Pet Shop Boys wave.

In parallel, British bands dominated heavy metal for a long time. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath *invented* heavy metal in the 70s. The mantle was soon taken up by people like Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Judas Priest and many others. The only US heavy metal band of any stature during this era was Van Halen and to a lesser extent Aerosmith.

But hmm, Suzanne Vega is a New York girl I think...

Err...yes Saudara IsaRahim:)...but as you can see...many here including Orchi...knew them from late 70s n early 80s wor...:D

Despite never hitting #1 in U.K. (it made it to #3), The Wall spent an astounding 15 weeks atop the U.S. charts during 1980. It sold well over 20 million copies worldwide and is often regarded as the best-selling double album ever. It has been certified 23x platinum by RIAA, for sales of 11.5 million copies in U.S. alone. The huge commercial success of The Wall made Pink Floyd the only artist since the Beatles to have the best-selling albums of two years (1973 and 1980) in less than a decade.

"On a warm summer’s evenin’ on a train bound for nowhere,
I met up with the gambler; we were both too tired to sleep.
So we took turns a starin’ out the window at the darkness
’til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak.

He said, son, I’ve made a life out of readin’ people’s faces,
And knowin’ what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
So if you don’t mind my sayin’, I can see you’re out of aces.
For a taste of your whiskey I’ll give you some advice.

So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow.
Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light.
And the night got deathly quiet, and his face lost all expression.
Said, if you’re gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right.

You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table.
There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.

Now ev’ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
’cause ev’ry hand’s a winner and ev’ry hand’s a loser,
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.

So when he’d finished speakin’, he turned back towards the window,
Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep.
And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even.
But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep.

You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table.
There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.

You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count you r money when you’re sittin’ at the table.
There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done."

I dont know if anyone has mentioned Michael Jackson here.
I cant remember anyone else in 80s that created so music like Michael Jacksonremember his album "Thriller".. Beat It! and Bille Jean! and his videos and his dancing and moonwalk His music still lingers when others have faded away from my memory.
He is the greatest of them all he gave us so much of entertainment and excitiment in the 80s.

He was the pioneer of music videos.. and i stll remember all the music shops a blaring his videos
On December 1, 1982 the album "Thriller" was released and has changed the history of music forever.

"Thriller" becomes the biggest-selling album of all time - selling over 51 million copies worldwide and providing a record of 6 Top Ten singles - the most ever from one album.
[Thriller Album]
Both records appear in The Guinness Book Of World Records and have never been broken up to this date!!!

"Thriller" [LP] held its number one position on the U.S. charts for an unrivaled 37 [!] weeks during a 122 week residency.

Michael Jackson becomes the undisputed King of Pop and reigns over his title up to today - unrivaled!
Wearing his now legendary glittery black jacket together with a black fedora for the first time as well as the already known white glove, Michael started to perform "Billie Jean" and showed the world for the first time ever what would become Michael Jackson's greatest trademark - the Moonwalk!
Some people in the audience said later it seemed as the whole world stood still when Michael performed the Moonwalk. In February of 1984 "Thriller" made its debut on MTV and it truly revolutionized the art of making music videos and forever changed the future of making videos.

With the release of this music video, Michael Jackson made history and forever changed MTV! "Thriller" was the first music video produced completely and entirely to be a short film.

At the end of the Millennium, "Thriller" will be chosen as the best music video of all time
After the video debuted on MTV, CBS [Epic] released "Thriller" as a single and sales of the album went crazy. According to statistics, the "Thriller" film ["The Making of Michael Jackson's Thriller"] and the release of the single resulted in 14 million additional album and tape sales within a 6 month periode. At one point in 1984, they were selling one million records a week.
On January 16, 1984 Michael Jackson won for the first time in the history of the American Music Awards 8 of the desirable trophies.
