    I've still got some of these in my iTunes. I LOVED the 80's. I still listen to Eurythmics, Dire Straits, Pretenders, Patti Smith, Blue Oyster Cult…. .*sighs happily*

    What - the Queen? ;) Still makes me cry when I listen to it.

    I'm too old to be a child of the Eighties. Was a respectable teacher by then.

    I'm a child of the sixties and seventies.

    I don't think I'd better post a link to the title track of my favourite album of the early 80s as it's got a nude man on the front. It's In The Flat Field by Bauhaus.

    Otherwise it was mostly anything by the Cure.

    Ah the Cure... Emo a decade before Emo existed!

    I kid!

    No worries @GLsghost

    The 80s embraces everyone!

    I was definitely not an emo! I'd been a punk before so was post-punk/burgeoning goth.

    leaving the 80's is proving to be very hard indeed.

    Goths! Ah I miss all the subculture stuff... modern kids don't seem to want to fit into easily defined categories to be judged by their elders.

    Just all saggy pants! grumble grumble

    Much preferred your second selection to your first @lanokia.
    Elder child liked Guns n' Roses.... I couldn't stand them. Of course it is a little pre R.E.M. !

    and then there was

    ERASURE :)

    I'm afraid this all passes me by... grudging respect for music I appreciate as good, but I just don't want to listen to it.

    For me it was:


    Put - well chucked because of the barrier - flowers on his grave last week. :(

    hope that's worked!

    I was, and remain, partial to Mr Ant.

    Love Erasure!

    Sorry! We couldn't leave him out of a thread on the 80s though.

    Not that I really needed an excuse;)
