    I was born in the 1980s but sometimes I feel I was a decade late to the party. There are so many great songs from that era. Hall and Oates, "I Can't Go for That", Journey, "Don't Stop Believin'" Michael Jackson's domination of hits, and so on. I just love the sound of the 1980s for some reason. It feels like that the influences of past decades and current innovations met at the exact right moment.

      Hi Alecia!   You helped me remember!  Despite the huge age difference...it seems you and I have similar taste in music....The Hall & Oates song and Journey song you mention are 2 that I liked a lot.  "Music" ignores our ages!!

    Golden Brown by the Stranglers, sounding very different from their normal hard punk rock patter it interested me very much.

    Well, harmony......Back in "those" days, I was raising 2 teens and 2 younger sons....but I do remember some of the music my eldest son listened to.  I liked "Journey," and one particular song they sang....I believe the name was "Open Arms.".....It would be difficult for me to name any other music from the eighties.....but I'm sure if I heard them, I'd say I could remember hearing them back then.
       Ask me ANYTHING about about the Golden Oldies, hon!  I'm a whole game of Trivia when it comes to '50's/'60's......and even some early '70's......By the eighties, my ears were listening to a whole lot more than music!!  LOL

    I was a hair metal fanatic at the tail end of the 1980's, but to pick just one would be excruciating. If I had to pick only one song from that enire decade, though, it wouldn't be hair metal. It would be Karma Chameleon by Culture Club, because that one song brings me right back to the 80's.
