Favorite 80’s Bands

go gos beauty and the beat

Remember making your own mixed tapes? Or, sitting on the floor of your bedroom with your boombox or walkman constantly rewinding, playing, rewinding, playing, repeat, etc., forever just to learn the lyrics of a song? And, then when you still weren’t sure you were calling up your friends and asking their opinions as to what the singer is actually saying… yep, that was me. We didn’t have Google – can you imagine?! How did we ever survive? Well, we had to be resourceful, creative and patient with a capital P.

Music wasn’t as important to me as a teen as it was to a lot of my friends, but I got to go to a Billy Idol concert when I was in high school, and my husband’s and my “song” was/is “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS. When I was listening to the radio, these were the bands I loved to listen to:

  1. Billy Idol
  2. INXS
  3. Go-Go’s
  4. Duran Duran
  5. Madonna
  6. Michael Jackson
  7. U2
  8. Talking Heads
  9. Beastie Boys
  10. Tears For Fears
