I suppose it`s about what you were into at the time.The great thing about the early 80`s in particular was that there were lots of scenes going on.You could tell musical preferences by the way people dressed,Mod,Ska,Rudies,Rocksteady,Skins,Futurist and the tail end of Punk were all knocking about.The emergence of the Casuals,or "Joey Boys" on Teesside,was a watershed for many posters on here.Good times for any lad or lass,endless choices.

Lol, OPUS are austrians though [;)]

Live is life was THE song of my childhood.
We were singing it in school (not knowing, what we were singing [;)] but it didnt matter that we didnt understand the words, my whole class loved it), we were singing it in our spare time when we were outside playing ball or whatever, mum was singing it when she was in the kitchen cooking, it was played on the radio 24/7.
It is a very simple song, but very ear-catching, it has something special.
It's CULT [:)]
And it was number 6 in the UK charts.

Let's all sum this up in one sentence (or maybe two)..


The 80's were absolutely brilliant (music-wise)!

The songs were very melodic, not that monotonic hip-hop and rap-S*** (sorry if I should offend some rap and hip-hop fans here) of today.

In the 80's, the singers were still SINGING, not all that babbling that you could hear in todays songs.

Plus, the videos were absolutely brilliant. (See my Nik Kershaw- Wouldn't it be good video)

The Lotus Eaters video was recorded at Walberswick, near Southwold.

It's home of the British Crabbing Championships, and now also home to Richard Curtis, Simon Mayo, and others giving it the name of Chelsea on Sea!

I was working there the summer that the video was recorded.

There used to be a lovely tea room called Mary's that served enormous fresh cream jam doughnuts!!

Oh, and Alison Brown..........

However, the two stand out 80's TV music moments for me were on Whistle Test...

the aforementioned Robert Wyatt's version of Shipbuilding....

and young William Bragg singing the song with which I have serenaded my girlfriend, now wife, for over 20 years!!!

Outstanding live performance of a song was The Smiths Still Ill, recorded here in Derby, but witnessed in Leicester a couple of months earlier!

I Wanna Know What Love Is and Wonderful Life for me, two others I think were from the 80's (but I'm always wrong) Dan Hill - Sometimes When We Touch and Sad Cafe - Every Day Hurts, and yep I am a soppy lass.

I remember seeing The Smiths do Still Ill live on The Tube. Moz was singing laying on the stage with gladioli hanging out of his jeans pocket and the band playing away.

The audience were just gobsmacked and didn't know where to look,what to do.

Cant remember any 80's songs might be due to the fact that I am a middle-aged tee-totaller who has the occasional drink !!!!!!!
