    The Mr. Mister song…one of my 80s faves…not to scare you but I have that album.

      I love that song, problem with people these days is nobody appreciates good music anymore. It’s all about loud banging music now with lyrics that don’t make any sense, glad someone shares my choice of music. Thank you for visiting my blog! :)

    The fact that you have an entire tab dedicated to 80′s music already makes me LOVE this blog! ;) I’ve been listening to INXS all morning.

        I have to agree with you a 100%. I’ve got this Foreigner CD and the Beatles’ All Star Show that I’ve played over and over. If music today can get worse I don’t know where we’re heading tomorrow. I’m a teenager and I have no problem admitting that I absolutely love your music collection!

        You should should try listening to Paul Mauriat, he was into orchestra, here’s his remake on I like Chopin by Paul Mazzolini:

        Thank you for sharing and i’m glad there’s someone out there with good music tastes! instead of the usual loud music with lyrics that don’t make any sense :)

    I am a huge fan of 80s music too – maybe I should add an 80s tab to my blog too! My favourite bands included Japan, Spandau Ballet, David Bowie, Simple Minds, Talk Talk, Tears for Fears… the list goes on!

    • andy1076

      December 29, 2011 at 5:36 am

    I dig what you have going on here. A nice variety. Also, a a nice change from the “norm” for me. i read lot’s of self help and spiritually based blogs and articles. it’s always such a blessing to come across a breath of fresh air. Very nice, i love the music only page.

    I was thinking about a way to make the videos and music, or for that matter music videos, haha available easily without having to scroll and scroll through my blog. Not that scrolling through and reading is un-wanted but you know, some people like videos better then blog posts. Thanks for the idea! and for checking out my own blog! :)

      January 27, 2012 at 7:33 pm

      Hey Andrew! thanks for dropping by, yeah my blog is pretty much all over the place lol! I am just that random of a guy :)

      You’re very welcome for the idea my friend, I’m glad to see others try the music only page. This way, everyone can sit back and make a play list right? :D

    I LOVED THIS POST!!! I don’t know why I didn’t notice your ’80s music’ page before. LOVED the Billy Idol & Alice Cooper. I was so, so intrigued by Alice Cooper, as a teen – loved his music.I remember one where he was calling out “Stephen….. Steeeephen….” I loved it.

    Greetings from Europe,
    loved to drive in my car in the 80s listening to American Top 40 … deeply moved by the song of Corey Heart – never surrender!
    Best wishes

      January 31, 2012 at 9:33 am

      There’s just no comparison to driving and listening to that show on the radio, at times I actually wished the drives were longer so I could enjoy more of it lol!

      I’ll be updating the page frequently to add more videos and songs, thank you so much for visiting :)

    Heaven used to be my favorite song in High School. It was one of the reasons why I wanted to play the guitar.

    • andy1076

      I wish I knew how to play guitar, I had the chance and now I regret not trying :(

        June 19, 2012 at 6:54 am

        You can always start learning now. With the technology that we have, I’m sure it won’t be that difficult. The first step is to buy an acoustic guitar and cut your nails… :-)

      • andy1076

        Acoustic huh? i’d prolly get noise complaints from neighbors lol! ;)

    Not that I’m a music guru or anything, but wasn’t this Meatloaf video from the 90′s or 2000′s? I HATE 80′s music! Unless it was Meatloaf of course. But I suppose I was in my twenties then, and had it banging in my ear 24/7, and the videos remind me of the grotesque fashions and make-up we used to wear! Hey Andy! What kind of cyber friend puts up a page like this!! Enjoy!

    • andy1076

      August 27, 2012 at 9:58 am

      Meatloaf set the standard back in the day in my opinion lol! Good music back in those days compared to what they play today

    March 7, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    I love 80s music as much as I hate most other things about the 80s… Hahaha the clothes, the hair, the Cold War, etc…

    • andy1076

      March 7, 2013 at 5:15 pm

      Yeah, I guess there’s not a whole lot to like a bout the clothing especially the bland colors and pull up bottoms, but hey! indeed 80′s was the age of good music :D

    • andy1076

      March 25, 2013 at 6:12 pm

      Same here :) lol! back in Chile, Iquique in the early 80′s they played Abba and Julio Iglesias, when I came here I heard all these songs and absolutely fell in love :D

        March 25, 2013 at 6:24 pm

        When it came to music, tThey were about a decade behind in SA weren’t they? I found the same in Bolivia in 1979

      • andy1076

        March 25, 2013 at 6:26 pm

        Yeah, Fernando was the song ABBA played CONSTANTLY on the radio. It was a radio sensation, It wasn’t long before more of the western culture started coming into the city :) good times!

    April 2, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    Oh my gosh. 80s music is my music! Love all of these. Listened to some 80s music just today and took pictures of my radio display with the titles so I could write about some of the songs! Jammed a bit to Yaz today.

    • andy1076

      April 2, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    April 15, 2013 at 5:44 pm

    Yes, Yes and YES! I miss the 80′s. I left my mom a vmail the other weekend when I heard “Morning Train (9 to 5) by Sheena Easton on our local music video station (yes, I was watching music videos while cooking lol). My mom used to dance around the kitchen and sing it to me. What memories…

    • andy1076

      April 15, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    January 26, 2014 at 11:18 am

    “Never Surrender” is one of my favorite songs ever. I love that you have a section of your page devoted to ’80s music. Music has really gone down hill since then. I’m more of a fan of the hair metal of the ’80s, though.

    I have a song request… its a late 80′s song… Heartbreak by Sweet Sensation from the album “Take it while it’s hot”! Do you have an audio version of the file? It’s just too related to my childhood and I can’t find it on the internet!

    • andy1076

    wellt hanks for the memory lane experience. The expose song was one of my favs – and I remember shopping for prom stuff while it was playing!!! :)

    also, some of these songs were not necessarily stuff I would listen to on my tape deck (lol) but many of them were playing all the time – and so they becomes a piece of my history and remind me of friends. Like Nightshift was always playing. and a few guy friends LOVED Broken Wings and I can still see them singing parts of it.

    enjoyed this very much. :)
    take care.

    I love 80s music. I wish I could still get away with my monstrous hair again. I loved big hair. I think I personally am responsible for at least part of our ozone layer problem.

        Oh and the weird oil like filled stickers that changed colors as you pressed them. I have no idea what was in those – probably some toxic substance that has since been banned. LOL. Oh and the fruit smelling markers. The 1st graders these days have no idea what it’s like to get high in Art Class anymore. Tragic, really.

      • andy1076

        April 2, 2014 at 4:15 pm
