Off Topic: Favorite Music?


Recommended Posts

You got me in a good mood, Jackie, girl!

 

I like your choices. "Put on a little make-up, make-up!"

 

This Solid Gold clip kills me:

It's rainy here in the 'Burg, but we're going to have a lovely weekend.

 

I always associate 80s music with summer because we had a pool and most every day

during the summer, my brother and I (with supervision) would play in the pool while listening

to 80s music on the radio.

 

Here are some summer songs for me:

And since this is a classic film board:

You're hitting many of the right notes with me, Jackie. The Cure is the only false one, but I

thought the song was very solid.

 

Loved hearing "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic." That's my favorite Police song.

 

I never heard "Sunday Girl" before. It's good. You selected my favorite Blondie

tune: "One Way or Another."

 

I love your choice for favorite video of the 80s. I really like that video and song. I need to think

about what my favorite video is. I loved "Thriller" and "Money for Nothing" when they first aired.

 

These are the videos I have always liked from my MTV days:

But this is most definitely the most memorable video of the 80s for me:

I have almost everything Blondie recorded, but Sunday Girl stands way up high above everything else for me. It's a super song.

 

Oh my gosh, FISH HEADS! Geez. That is hysterical! My daughter loves that song....who knew they had a video? I don't remember it at all....leave it to you to post that one!

 

You had a distinct liking for very stylized videos, very German stuff.... interesting. A little Lang fan in the making.....or maybe it was the girls with red lipstick...and Nena with her Luftballons. :)

 

I liked the Eddie Money one - it faintly rings a bell .....

 

Der Kommissar is just one of those weird songs that sounded so new and different at the time. I still really like it.

 

oooohhh. I LOVE Squeeze.

 

I almost posted The Tubes in my last post, that is so funny!

 

I always liked the way things got very mixed up in the eighties.... there was a very open mindset then... an anything goes attitude, music wise. I liked a lot of the Euro stuff, with an emphasis on the UK bands like Big Country, The English Beat, UB40, et al.

*Chris -* Frankenstein! Oh that's a great song! You are really bringing back lot of memories....that was popular when I got my first little transistor radio...maybe 1975? I remember playing in the driveway and listening to it.....

 

Here is another favorite video of mine (and my favorite song by this band). I like the idea of a song about a woman who just floats away:

 

 

 

Most memorable videos?

Sure, you can say it. :-) I imagine you heard the American bastardized version first. It's funny to me that they bothered to translate it into English but kept the title the same. What's the point?

 

I think that was the only hit After the Fire ever had, if I remember correctly.

Yeah, I think that's all they did. But I still like it better. So sue me....I have bad taste.... :)

".I have bad taste.... "

 

but you do like Fish Heads! Excuse me if this has already been mentioned, but Barnes and Barnes who did the 1978 version is Billy Mumy and a childhood friend.
