Precisely. Now I have "Dare" stuck in my head.

this sounds like a current disscusion on bbc 6music asking 'why don't Americans understand Brit music' because of james blunt making billboard and artic monkeys not. ignoring the fact that artic monkeys are hugely over hyped. lots of people like shite music. Why would anybody listen to micheal bolton when you can still buy otis redding CDs :shock:

There were definitely worse things than Starship around in 85 - if you think Goths are bad news nowadays you should've been there when they first crept out of the shadows of New Wave - a generation regretted ever buying hair crimpers -

:D 8) I see it totally EYE to EYE with you.......musically speaking, they are YEARS to burn rapidly and to cancel off the calendar. Not all JS songs were bad (eg Runaway) and they were "commercially" over the top of the crappy disco-duck whimpy music of the 80s that's for sure :twisted: :roll: Then they ask why many music freaks (like me) turned to Paisely Underground in those years, heheheheh!!!
As for all the rest, I hate the 80s because counter-current to many, I was less 'rich' in those years (I was NO yuppie, hehehe) and only started makin' some REAL dough in the 90s; people seemd less friendly back then...everybody back into their little eggshells again just like in the pre-60s!). Fortunately those years are long gone!!!
VIVA the Ks!!!!!

That she regrets that period??

By the way, the 80s is my least favourite period...the the 60s and 70s are great....some of the 90s and nowadays, but the 80s?
All those acoustic guitarists that grabbed the synthesizer, even when it wasn't their thing :P
Psychedelic music is IN with time!!
