Are you still connected with the 80's era?

New Wave - The New Wave was introduced during the 80's era.New Wave is a rock music genre that existed during the late 1970s and the 1980s.

I have loved the 80's and still listen to songs from that era. I remembered I used to got to disco's, concerts, parties and listen to New wave songs. We even had a group called Dyna Info Clash Wavers. We have this cool radio stations then who played most of our favorites WXB 102, DMZ, Power 105, NU107..Popular disco's like MWF, Colors, Cool 80's music struck the airwaves leaving a Mark to the teens during that era. We have the popular artists like Duran Duran, Boy George with his group Culture Club, Motley Crew, Skid Row, Morrissey ( which I used to name one of my kids from), Alphaville, The Cure, 10,000 maniacs, Chrissie Hynde, The Call,B-52's, Pat Benatar, Roxette,Huey Lewis and the News, Flock of Seagulls,The Who,Lisa lisa, The Cult, A-ha, Toto, Rick Astley and so many good artist back then who shared our memories with their songs.. Popular songs like Love moves in strange ways(Blue Zoo), Somebody (Depeche Mode), Gold (Duran Duran), People are Strange(Doors), The Model(Kraftwerk),Dear God(XTC),Funky Called Medina (Tone Loc), Walk like an Egyptian (Bangles),Luka(Suzanne Vega), Take on me(A-ha),Ice Ice Baby(Vanilla Ice) and lots more...I love the 80's and I still do until now..The songs, the artists, the events,the parties, the clothes, the hairstyles.. My music is still with the 80's. That was the most memorable era to me and I know loads of people loved the 80's back then and still haven't gotten over it. Anybody out there still living with the 80's memories like me? Who do you remember back then? What did you do during that era? Any 80's favorites? I'd love to hear it from you!

There are many good songs from the '80s, I wouldn't even know where to start... I keep in touch with the '80s by listening to an online radio called Mixy Only 80s. It's on a site that used to pay for listening to the radio, but they've stopped doing that for now. It's good they still allow listening to the radio.

That's good I listen to my favorite at live 365.com. My favorite is WXB102. It was a defunct radio station closed by President Marcos because of the music...good thing though Online Radio got it back on air. I love the 80's and I will never tire of them.
