We Loved the '80's

Everyone has their guilty pleasures or just stuff that puts a big, fat smile on their face. For some, it just a mere scoop of Ben & Jerry's One Cheesecake Brownie ice cream. Others, it's the latest novel from Laurell K. Hamilton. Some are never satisifed at all. LOL Well, we are not going to talk about those who quite simply will never be satisifed irregardless of how the dice may land. 

In the '80's, record shops were the coolest place in the world to hang out when you weren't buying gadgets from your local Radio Shack. After spending countless hours in the malls or shopping strips, you would go home & turn up your radio as loud as the dial would go. Of course, there is always a rapping on your door that halts this kinda fun but it was good while it lasted. There is even more fun to be had when the parents left town or were at work. Then you would've had the place to yourself & only the sh*tty neighbors to deal with. Crank it up one more time.

Whether you were into rap or metal at the end of the era doesn't really matter. The '80's were a pivotal point for literally all kinds of music & I think everyone carried away something with them before walking head on into the '90's. Here is some stuff that I miss.

1. Darking Nikki-Prince
2. Metro-Berlin
3. Fight For Your Right-Beastie Boys
4. Flesh For Fantasy-Billy Idol
5. Call Me-Blondie
6. You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)-Dead Or Alive
7. Hungry Like The Wolf-Duran Duran
8. 99 Luft Balloons-Nena
9. Melt With You-Modern English
10. Every Breath You Take-The Police
11. Mr. Roboto -Styx
12. Bizarre Love Triangle-New Order
13. Invincible-Pat Benatar
14. Love Song-The Cure
15. Here Comes The Rain-Eurythmics

I could have sworn I already left you a comment telling you about your excellent taste in music on this list, but I don't see one anywhere.

I seem to recall you did as well Orlok but thanks again! Maybe it was another mixed compilation CD list. I'm getting old so my memory may be failing me. Don't ever get old. Hehheh

Too late. My 24 year old body conceals a 100 year old brain (not that smart, but that confused).

Confusion can be nice sometimes. It's definitely underrated.

Us in our 30's, the 80's is our generation! Invincible by Benatar...oh yeh.

I have a small collection of mixed CDs. Orlok kinda sorta got me started on the mixed CD thing-y again since I joined Lunch. It's not a bad way to express yourself & it's fun to make CDs for road trips. I had a chance to see Pat Benatar twice live & missed both of her shows. I know, I'm pathetic. Maybe she will make a grand return soon. Thnks man!!!

Oh Cenobite, Cenobite Cenobite- I am SO happy that you're on the site! Is this only Vol. 1? I feel a little inspiration to do my own- I only have 3 gagillion 80s songs...oh, how do we limit them to just one list? LOL...

Well, thank you djevoke!! I am having a blast on here myself & I'm glad you are enjoying the lists or reviews. Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. There was so much stuff & Ididn't know how to cram it all on just one disc or volume. There were a lot of honorable mentions & stuff which rightfully deserved a place on someone's compilation list but I couldn't anymore scrape the surface than the next individual. I would really Love to see your compilation list for something retro as I'm sure you could throw together quite a mix. That would be a fun project for sure though. Thumbs up!! LOL

Music Ripe for a Revolution 3 cover
Who doesn't love what modern technologies can do for us? As if the invention of the CD over twenty years ago wasn't exciting enough, now we can burn our own CDs and create our own compilation albums. For me, this has become a cheap, fun, and relatively easy way to gather my favorite songs and my favorite artists on one CD. Being an obsessive compulsive, I've now created compilation CDs for just about every imaginable mood I'm in. I've got some for when I'm reading, some to inspire me when I write, …
