I am so into 80's music it is hard to say. I love/loved all the hair bands, Scorpian, Journey, goodness, you name it, I love it still. I even still like listening to my old standby, NKOTB. I know, I know, but I still like Hangin Tough and other songs, even if the guys are total dinks. So what about you? What interests you? 80's music wise...

I listen to a lot of 80's music. I was surprised to find a local radio station that plays a lot. I like Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, Concrete Blonde, Blondie, Bryan Adams, Journey, Foreigner, The Clash, The Kinks, Madonna, John Cougar Mellencamp, Def Leppard, Duran Duran, Prince, Loverboy, Lita Ford, Pat Benatar, Heart, Billy Idol, Glass Tiger and Foreigner. REO is doing a concert here next month I plan to go to. It's all good stuff...lol.

I am sorry to say that I was never into the eighties music. Lori is and listens to it some. That is the time frame that I really got into listening to Jazz and new age music which still is my favorite types of music.

Lori is cool. :p Nah, I can appreciate that. Jazz has its own time and place for me.

I like Bon Jovi, my kids now listen to him and prefer my music of the 80's and 70's over the new stuff! Some of the music out these days you can not understand a word of it. I am a big fan of classic rock.

This is my sentiments exactly! Oh, I have my faves of the new stuff. Well, fairly new. Goo Goo Dolls, anything with Rob Thomas and Green Day... However, it is the 80's stuff that gets me wanting to dance and be happy.

If you are talking about band in the 80s, it was Duran Duran's 'A View to A Kill' in James Bond movies that launched me into the musics of the 80's. Later, bands like Aha, Michael Learns to Rock, Police, Tears for Fears all became my favourite and have accompanied me throughout my teenages year. Even until today.
