It's hard for me to list just one, but I'd go with The Pogues, "A pair of brown eyes."
Great topic! Got to give some love to The Pixies. And The Smiths. And Dexy's Midnight Runners. :rofl8yi:
A-Ha. Take on me.
I second Dexy's Midnight Runners as well.
Anything by Def Leppard. Anything.
She's a Beauty - The Tubes
Stop Draggin My Heart Around - Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty'
Just a couple that come to mind.
Ooh - "Sister Christian". "MOTORING!!"
I love Tom Petty!
Guilty pleasures - Journey and Styx. "Mr. Roboto" is genius...
So many to choose from. Great calls so far on the thread. What about "Jack and Diane" from John Cougar (I don't think he had added the Mellencamp yet and I know he had not scrapped the Cougar yet).
Huey Lewis and the News- The Power of Love (i love the back to the future series) =)
Billy Ocean - going gets tough, carribean queen, lol
Modern English - I melt with you
Duran Duran - all of them
I basically loved most of the music of the 80's
Any early R.E.M. as well...So. Central Rain comes to mind. Anyone else see them in C.Y. Stephens in the mid 80's?
"Don't Tell Me You Love Me" is a much better song! One of the pleasures of having young kids is "spinning tall tales" about what you did in your youth. My kids are 12, 11 & 10, and until recently I had them convinced that I was the lead singer for Night Ranger (Jack Blades) until I left the band to marry their mother!
Nobody has yet mentioned one of my '80's favorites, LOVERBOY! I saw them at the Mississippi Queen in probably 1979, and they were back headlining Hilton (with opening act Donnie Iris) in either '81 or '82. DOA...:laugh8kb:
I *heart* R.E.M. It's later, but "Strange Currencies" was our first dance at our wedding.
Loverboy!! Awesome - good pull!
They kept playing "The Final Countdown" by Europe at the hockey game on Friday night - anyone remember what movie that's from?
I still love MTV's "top five at five" in the 1984-85 era, which almost always included:
Simply Irresistible - Robert Palmer
Home Sweet Home - Motley Crew, and
Girlschool - Britny Fox
For the metalheads in the crowd, how about "Holy Diver" by Ronnie James Deo and "The Lumberjack Song" by Jesse James Dupree...
For the chicks in the crowd, there's "Always Love You" by Whitney and anything by Michael Jackson, DeBarge or Ready for the World (No Parkin' Baby, No Parkin' on the Dance Floor...)
"Stranger in Town" by Toto
Any song off of Pink Floyd's 'Momentary Lapse of reason' album
Dead Milkmen's "Punk Rock Girl"
'Time after Time' from Cyndi Lauper
'Total Eclipse of the Heart' by Bonnie Tyler
'Jump' by Van Halen
'Pour some sugar on me' Def Leppard
'The Flame' by Cheap Trick
'Summer of '69' by Bryan Adams
More than a few of the songs off of Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction album
And I end this with 'I wanna be Sedated' by the Ramones.
This list could go on and on.
I think we are all forgetting the great Rick Astley. :rolleyes5cz: "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down..."
'Whenever There's a Night' - Mike Reno
'Toy Soldiers' - Martika
'Meet Me Half Way' - Kenny Loggins
'Home Sweet Home' - the Motley Crue
'Coming Home' - Cinderella
I never saw REM in Ames. But did see them in Iowa City at Hancher. I think they we're touring behind Fables of the Reconstruction.
Loverboy was in Ames for a show one night when we were eating at Carlos O'Kellys. The singer lit up a joint at the table next to ours.
I've always liked Peter Gabriel. Sledgehammer, Red Rain, Shock the Monkey, I have the Touch. Don't like the overplayed, In Your Eyes, though.
A great 80s song is She Sells Sanctuary by the Cult. Great song!
Sixteen posts in and nobody has yet mentioned Aerosmith! I'll submit their comeback version of "Walk This Way" with RunDMC. Staying on the bent of duets, how about "What've I Done to Deserve This" by the Pet Shop Boys with Dusty Springfield? Of course that leads me to General Hospital's own Rick Springfield and the Working Class Dog album headed by "Jesse's Girl"...
OK, I've gotta get out of here and do some work...
I love the Beastie Boys. "Paul's Boutique" was genius.
What was everyone's first concert? I went to see Bon Jovi and Cinderella when I was about 9 or so.
