Well said. There was plenty of bad music just like any other era, but overall I thought the 80s were a great decade of music. I'll admit that I have many of the songs mentioned in this thread in my music library (but definitely not We Built This City).
He had a couple of halfway decent tunes ("Rock This Town" and...), but, no, he's never been very impressive as a songwriter.
You guys aren't working hard enough!
Guys, there was MUCH worse music cranked out in the 1980's than Men at Work or Culture Club.
I'm amazed no one posted this POS:
What was Eddie thinking??? To quote Rick James: "Cocaine's a hell of a drug!"
Okay, you may have been a good actor on Miami Vice, but a music career too? (check a young Dweezil Zappa on guitar going, "Gimme my cash and get me the **** outta here!")
Admittedly, Don Johnson wasn't as bad as his co-star. It doesn't get much more embarrassing than this, IMO:
in his mind he did
I dislike songs that start with a vowel movement...gimme some words or be quiet.
Me too but Micky isn't so bad...
Nothing against Michael Jackson but it was a wise decision for him to leave the band he had with his brothers..
The funny thing about this video, it's a song that has Michael and Jermaine sharing lead vocals and neither is actually IN that video because of them being not available for the shoot. So they had two look-a-likes coming in...
...Make your own conclusions here...
ok homies, is important for musician to understand that CRAFT goes into music, any style of music.
maybe is not appealing to taste. but is still crafted from nothing, is still someone expression.
is important to be open-minded or is good indication of your own insensitivity as musician.
Oh, Yeah, those duets between Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney were simply ghastly.
Michael Jackson was the inspiration for more awful music than any other person on the planet.
You can't change that by doing a couple of duets. No sir.
My belief is, every time you hear some pop music on the radio, if it sucks, they're trying to channel Michael. His "fault" or not, I don't frankly care.
Kids, just because one "one in a billion" guy did it, doesn't mean you can do it.
Be yourself. Don't let your handlers or producers try to make you the next MJ because you will dishonor yourself. If you don't have anything personal to yourself to convey, take a breath and step back.
I agree with you when the intent is to create something of beauty, a soul reaching wonder, a reflection of our genesis, which we all share...but most of the yahoos on this list just wanted to get famous and rich through whatever material would get them there. Anything creative was quickly hammered down to the lowest common denominator. I think Flock of Seagulls was sincere, however:
You cannot possibly mean this guy.
I think the shorter list would be "the best songs of the 80's"! HA!
Totally kidding, I'm surprised by some of the choices but then again it's all personal taste.
I'm an 80's baby so I grew up on the mid 90's post grunge music other then what my family kept around to rock out too (the Cure comes too mind). But damn I love me some synth!
"Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats.
LOL, I'll just answer this with one word........most. How's that for being "old school".
They weren't usually called "Flock of Turkeys" for nothing!
I dunno... I reckon The Misfits, Urge Overkill, The Cramps, Psychedelic Furs, Joy Division, Killing Joke, Motorhead, Yazoo, Sisters of Mercy, The Smiths, The Cult, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Matt Finish, The Sunnyboys, The Numbers, Spy Vs Spy, The Stems, Paul Kelly, INXS, The Hoodoo Gurus and a whole slew of Aussie power pop made the decade bearable.
But that's just me...
Whaaaa?!!!!!....no Bon Jovi?!!!!
