Didn't really listen to the Blow Monkeys...

and certainly didn't listen to Clark Datchlers solo stuff!! Sorry Frank! :)

There really are so many tracks and 80's bands I'd love to mention in this thread....

They've rereleased the first NOW album for its 25th anniversary. Best thing is.....the missus is getting it for me for my birthday. Plus, I managed to get the GTA Vice City boxset, and its the best boxset ever (minus that latino music).
I mean, Judas Priest, Human League, John Waite, Michael Jackson (before the trials) and Luther Vandross are just the icing on the retro cake.

These are the Best of the 80's (and still going, though not in their full line-up)! Such a sexy-cool bass line, and no artist/group has ever had such a remarkable and fantasticle image. 21st Century Boys, indeed! 8)

Ditto. 14 pages in summary - what should I be listening to next weekend, give me a playlist of essentials.

Already I'm thinking a mix of Adam and the Ants and SHE.

Dude, if it includes both Crockett's theme and the Miami Vice theme, then this road trip is gonna be bloody awesome.

Obsession by Animotion, may not be a well known song or band but ever since they played it as part of the soundtrack for the 80s set Vice City, ive been hooked its a real nightclub classic
