    Someone started this on another forum I post on.

    Making me go way back into the memories.

    Personal faves..

    Dire Straits - Money for Nothing
    David Bowie - Space Oddity
    Phil Collins - susudio
    Madness - Our House

    I just found a Torrent that i'm gonna download with the top 1000 songs of the last 20 years or so.

    I found one for the Bill Board top 100 for the last 6 years and one for 250 best songs of the 90's.

    It's really cool to go back on the years on the pod.

    yea i was into Dire Straits, they were decent.... and for me the 80's was all about;

    Adam and the Ants
    Ultravox
    Michael Jackson
    A-ha
    Frankie Goes to Hollywood
    Tears for Fears
    Duran Duran
    ... and that dude... you know 'sledgehammer'... cant remember his name now...

    aswell as this chart music there was all the rock stuff too like metallica, bon jovi, def leopard etc.... but with the exception of metallica most of it just sounds dated now.... but the chart stuff lives on!... we had a party around my mates flat the other day and had nothing but 80's chart music... it rawks!

    Peter Gabriel, quite good BTW. (In your eyes)

    For me also, as groups:

    -The Police, many of their songs, but Synchronicity II and King of Pain on top
    -Dire Straits, Tunnel of love and Telegraph Road
    -Simple Minds, Once upon a time, Alive and Kicking, All the Things She said
    -U2 (almost everything)
    -Bryan Adams
    -REO speedwagon (some songs)
    -Marillion

    And as isolated songs:

    -It's my life, Talk Talk
    -I touch myself, Divinils
    -Cuts you up, Peter Murphy (I think it's 80's)

    Peter Gabriel. That song is brilliant. (sorry, didn't see it (G) K)

    A friend of mine recently gave me a cd with 700 songs from the 80's. It's hilarious. Songs like 'word up' by Cameo, or The Heat is On by Glenn Frey. Don't forget Jan Hammer (MV theme), Marillion (Kayleigh) and Mel & Kim (Showing Out)....:mrgreen::mrgreen:.


    (Peter Murphy, that's the 90's)
