Which one is your favorite period from the 80s, music-wise?

80s music’s different within each period…in early 80s we had new-wave ‘n synth-pop…in l8 80s we had acid house :-P

Personally I’d choose 1980-1981…. reason is , new wave/synth-pop music those years were so fuckin raw and edgy…full of energy!!! Also power-pop was at its prime back then!

Top 10 albums from 1980-1981 imo:

Duran Duran – Duran Duran

Fischer-Z – Going Deaf For A Leaving

Kim Wilde – Kim Wilde

Mi-Sex – Space Race

The Passions – 30 ft Over China

Spandau Ballet – Journeys To Glory

Squeeze – Argybargy

Ultravox – Rage In Eden

Vapors – New Clear Days

Wall Of Voodoo – Dark Condinent

  • 1980 - 1981 Purely for "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

    • Do u like Paul Young's cover?

    • Listened to the two tracks side by side. Paul Youngs is too poppy and well produced for me. It was meant to be a raw college band sounding song.

  • Best albums of the 80s in no particular order.

    Thriller - Michael Jackson
    The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
    The Smiths - The Smiths
    Back in Black - AC/DC
    Appetite For Destruction - Guns n Roses

  • Its too many little periods to choose from :) I think 1983-1987 was big with 1984 being the prime.
