So I'm listening to Thomas Dolby's She Blinded Me With Science and They Might be Giants Instanbul, among others. Totally rocking out. Putting on some Whitesnake next. Anyway, my 13 year old is mocking me for listening to weird music. I feel I have let her down, not introducing her to the 80's enough.

Ive got the Bangles, B-52s, Springsteen, Styx, Kansas, Steve Miller, and lots more. What else can I torture, er I mean, introduce her to?

Recommendations?

I hate Mellancamp after his Chevy commercials, but he does have some good 80's music.

Listening to the Talking Heads right now. She thinks I'm REALLY weird now. :)

G., she must hear "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell and "Bette Davis Eyes" by Kim Carnes. Both are on my personal "desert island must haves" top 40 list.

Really Lanky? You're gonna give me crap for Flood? Will enjoy crushing you in FF even more now. :)

Nice recommendations, Serv. I haven't listened to Bette Davis Eyes in I don't know how long. Just downloaded it, good memories.

Sargent, I was blasting Burning Down the House and Once in a Lifetime riding with her in the car. Think she's already warped...

An incredible decade for music.

Does anyone remember the Chris Rock live show, where he said something to the effect of "You know what your favorite music is? It's whatever was playing the first time you started having sex. Now that's some good stuff."

No 80s collection is complete without a healthy dose of Huey Lewis and the News.

Throw in some Men at Work, Night Ranger and Pat Benetar and you've got yourself a party. :)

Pretenders

Police

Prince

Queen

Journey, (esp. "Don't Stop Believin' ")

Animotion one song, "Obsession", but a great one.

David Bowie -Let's Dance album in particular.

Cinderella-(Mike's mentioning Poison reminded me about them)

Def Leppard

Nu Shoes "I Can't Wait"

Timbuk3 "The Future's So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades"

Glass Tiger "Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone"


I have a thing for what I call "one and done" musical artists-one or maybe two really big hits and that's it-the 1980s had a bunch of those.

Don't forget songs like "Mexican Radio" by Wall of Voodoo or "Puttin' on the Ritz" by Taco.

How about Berlin's "Sex (I'm a...)" or Frankie Goes to Hollywood - "Relax"

Wish you guys would warn me before you go peaking at the music collection on my media server. It's only polite to ask after all.
