The 80s Song Appreciation Thread

jackbauerjackbauer Advanced Members Posts: 276 ✭✭
I've learned a lot from the 60s and 70s thread and figured there should be one for the 80s as well.



The first thing that came to mind was Tarzan Boy by Baltimora, which I recognized as the oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-AH-OH-AH song until about five years ago. I can still see Chris Farley swaying from the palm tree and Casey Jones at the bar with the samurai (1:24:20 mark). Don't hate me ... I grew up in the 90s.

    Literally the most fun I've ever had was playing gran Turismo 3 listening to "she sells sanctuary" by the cult back in like 2000. I am pretty sure all of our girlfriends dumped us that summer over that. But the times we had with the electronic Porsche CTR2 sport live on!



    I still listen to it a lot!



    I'll contribute more to this for sure

    The 80s was a greatly under estimated time for music.



    This is one of my favorites from this famous band. I saw them in the fall of '85 when they opened for Burning Spear, and then again on this tour in a small bar. I bet there were 200 people there, and they were absolutely incredible!

    https://www.youtube....mdEOAH5xE may open up some eyes to their beginnings before Californication.



    This album was unreal as a debut. I didnt get to see them for a few years, but they were amazing in concert. The first time I saw them Primus opened up for them, the second time was in a little theater around here.

    https://www.youtube....h?v=1kAIMlISHhU



    I have seen some dud concerts, but these two bands delivered well above the $10 ticket price.

    I celebrate all 80s music - rock, pop, new wave, even country-western. But in my heart I am a hair metal guy, and am a sucker for "power ballads". The old monster ballads CD was a favorite of mine... Every bad boy has a soft side. I'll pull some deeper ones to get going:

    They sort of span the late '70s and 80s, but I think they qualify as an 80s band certainly. And completely underrated.

    The 80's were great - everything from catchy pop and hair metal to heavy and speed metal. Most people know of Poison, Motley Crue, Slayer, etc. so here's a few lesser known 80's bands/songs.



    Hair metal:

    Roxx Gang - Ball n Chain [url="



    Cats in Boots - Her Monkey https://www.youtube....h?v=9ODLn_XyzEE



    Bangalore Choir - Angel in Black https://www.youtube....h?v=ZXOQRvmkIl0





    Rock:

    Fifth Angel - Fifth Angel https://www.youtube....h?v=bYD_IIC4WKU





    Speed/Thrash:

    Dark Angel - Death is Certain (Life is Not) https://www.youtube....?v=ip1fdidNsGs

    (this cd is just as good, if not better, than Slayer's "Reign in Blood")

    Here's another band I picked up on in my high school career that I still listen to. They didn't put out too many duds, IMO. As with most bands I really enjoyed as a youngster, I also saw these guys multiple times in varying venues. Different energy than the bands previously mentioned, but I would absolutely do it again.

    Michael Stipe in interviews used to make me cringe but I was able to see REM in LA in the late 80s. I gotta admit they were fantastic live. Probably the best show I'd been to.

    I saw them in middle school (I was the last kid and was raised by wolves), and besides, I was a good kid at Kansas in 5th grade. Anyway, I won’t ever forget when JS did this song.

    Love threads like this,, I was still listening to CCR, Neil Young, and the like. But,, I rocked bands like The Replacements, Husker DU, and any traveling basement band..



    Funny,, my memory of the 80"s is kinda hazy...







    Edit: by love I mean taking time to listen to the music again...

    The Replacements were and are still one of my favorites. Caught them live as well and they were not fall down drunk so was good show. They petered out way too quick leaving a lot on the table.

    You guys like Phil Collins? Been a big Genesis fan, ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand, any of their work, too artsy, too intellectual .. It was on Duke, where, uh, Phil Collins presence became more apparent .. I think "Invisible Touch" is the group's undisputed masterpiece .. It's an epic meditation on intangibility .. at the same time it deepens and enriches the meaning of the proceeding three albums .. listen the to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins, and Rutherford, you can practically hear every nuance of every instrument .. in terms of lyrical craftsmanship and sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism .. take the lyrics to 'Land of Confusion", in this song Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority .. "In Too Deep", is the most moving pop song of the 1980s about monogamy and commitment .. the song is extremely uplifting, the lyrics are as positive and affirmative as, uh, anything I've heard in rock .. Phil Collins solo career, seems to be more commercial, and therefore more satisfying in a narrower way, especially songs like, "In The Air Tonight" and, uh, "Against All Odds" .. but I also think, Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and i stress the word, artist .. this is "Susudeo", a great, great song, a personal favorite

    I saw them after Bob had been fired. And, as a basement band, it was appropriate I saw them in the basement of the Syria Mosque in PGH. What a fun show.

    I saw Phil on his No Jacket Required tour at the Spectrum. Oddly enough, I now listen to Genesis exclusively and have not heard a Phil solo song in forever. And you are correct, he/they are/were great artists.

    He (Bob) must have been incredibly messed up to be fired from that band.



    What cracks me up is Tommy. I mean here he is, 12 year old kid who is probably semi neglected thrust into spotlight. All he's ever really known is being in a famous band. It's like. "Uhhh... I'm just gonna pass on the formative years thing."

    I got around to looking up the Syria Mosque. Granted just looked at wikipedia but was not what I expected. The name really threw me off not sounding like a concert venue lol... Quite a history there.

    Much of my 80s was spent playing beer pong. Not the beer pong sissies play today, we played true blue beer pong with paddles. There were 4 of us, sometimes more, and we would change the album after one side, and everyone got a pick. We had about 2000 albums to choose from, and the genres were varied from 60s/70s to Zoogz Rift. This album was always on the short list for us, and it still holds up in my opinion. When you can sing, "my girlfriend asked me which one like better/ I hope the answer don't upset her" you know you have the makings for a smash hit. There were no weak songs on this album, but played some serious fast paced pong when this side was on.



    Here's a couple that I remember most vividly. One of my regrets is never seeing them live.

    Forgot about those guys. When I'm golfing for some reason I always have a song going thru my mind. Could be a song I love. Could be a song i despise. I remember last year I played really well with Madonna's Borderline song stuck in my head. I had no idea how it got there. Probably heard it earlier in the day at a supermarket or something. Anyway, if I had Black Flag stuck in my head I"d probably shoot 40 over.



    lol.. Just popped into my mind how I used to play pretty well many moons ago with Camper Van Beethoven's Take the Skinheads Bowling looping in my head. Probably promoted a smooth transition at the top.

    I liked those girl group songs, like "Cruel Summer", and "Our Lips are Sealed."



    Or the B52's "Love Shack."



    Cool party songs.



    The other day, heard the Georgia Satellites, " Keep your hands to yourself." Reminds me of a date telling me that long before the song came out.

    Simple minds, Level 42, Culture Club... no, that was not the best of decades for music. Nice background drinking champagne and eating quiche lorraine back in the days when i had curly hair, suit and tie at the lectures, and found long hair or beard sooo medevial. Quite an awful decade as long as style goes.



    But of course there were some lights in the dark. Like the Cure, Pretenders, Violent Femmes and some scandinavian groups you havent heard of.

    My 80's song top picks in no particular order:



    Dio - Egypt (The Chains Are On); Rainbow in the Dark; and Holy Diver

    Ozzy Osbourne - Crazy Train; Mr. Crowley; Goodbye to Romance; Bark at The Moon; and Shot in the Dark

    Metallica - Fade to Black; Master of Puppets; and For Whom the Bell Tolls

    Joan Jett - Bad Reputation

    Judas Priest - Breaking the Law



    Clearly, I have a leaning toward the heavier side of music from the 80's.

    Much of my 80s was spent playing beer pong. Not the beer pong sissies play today, we played true blue beer pong with paddles. There were 4 of us, sometimes more, and we would change the album after one side, and everyone got a pick. We had about 2000 albums to choose from, and the genres were varied from 60s/70s to Zoogz Rift. This album was always on the short list for us, and it still holds up in my opinion. When you can sing, "my girlfriend asked me which one like better/ I hope the answer don't upset her" you know you have the makings for a smash hit. There were no weak songs on this album, but played some serious fast paced pong when this side was on.



    Here's a couple that I remember most vividly. One of my regrets is never seeing them live.

    In my humble opinion, Triumph is the best band to come out of Canada. Yes, better than Rush. Here's my favorite by them "A World of Fantasy"

    Whaaaat...you do realize The Crash Test Dummies are Canadian right? image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' /> Been a big Rush fan since I was a wee lad, and Neil Young too.

    Oh boy. I almost put up a Dead Kennedys link but then backed off. lol... Saw those guys in 84 right before or after (can't remember which) the Olympics in LA. Funny enough saw them at the Olympic Auditorium where I believe they used to do that Roller Derby with chicks lol... Was my first real punk show and have to admit I got a little nervous at times with people spitting in my hair and the slam pit etc.. Good times!
