Is this a test? :rofl:

In the Air Tonight was that Miami Vice song...I wonder if someone covered it for the upcoming movie. I prefer "Mama" by Genesis. :P

I basically get nostalgic over just about anything from the '80s, especially anything from my High School Years (1984-1988). I'll throw some out there (some are typical, some you may never have heard of):

  • "Somebody's Baby" - Jackson Browne off of the "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" Soundtrack - 1982

  • "Human Touch" - Rick Springfield off of (I believe) "Living in Oz" - 1983

  • "Taking my Chances" - the Outfield off of "Play Deep" - 1986

  • "With or Without You" - U2 off of "the Joshua Tree" - 1987

  • "Orange Crush" - R.E.M. off of "Green" - 1987 or 1988 (can't remember which)

  • "Black" - Pearl Jam off of "Ten" - 1991

  • "Water's Edge" - Seven Mary Three off of "Churn" and re-released off of "American Standard" - 1995

  • "If You Could Only See" - Tonic off of "Lemon Parade" - 1997

New Year's Day

by U2

That was the first music video (remember those?) that I ever saw. We didn't have MTV on cable where I lived at the time and this was the very first music video played on the very first episode of "Night Tracks" on Superstation WTBS. It was followed by "Saved by Zero" by the Fixx, if I recall. I remember staying up until 11:00pm on a Friday or Saturday Night to watch it (that was late for me back then).

I warned you that just about anything from the '80s evokes nostalgia for me. :wub:

I'm gonna have to go with Young MC's Bust a Move and anything from NWA's early days. Gotta love that old school hip hop.

I like a lot of random 80's songs too, thanks to the Donnie Darko soundtrack.

Indeed. I just saw both on VH1 Classic yesterday. VH1 Classic is like MTV of the 80's when they actually showed music videos instead of endless reality shows of 20 somethings having their mid-life crisis. :lol:

I often find myself watching VH1 Classic early on a Saturday Morning. When I was a kid, it was cartoons. Now, it's 80's videos. :rofl: There's another thing that seems to have vanished...Saturday Morning Cartoons. My kids are just going to have to have their own memories of childhood, I suppose. :rolleyes:

Don't forget that 1984 hit from The Pointer Sisters "Automatic" :lol:

The younger generation may know that song from the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

I'd have to go with "Come on Eileen" by Dexys Midnight Runners. I wasn't born until 1988 but I always loved this song and I still do.

All right, now you're making me feel old.... ;):silly::rolleyes:

OK...so I'm sitting here at 1:25AM ET watching the late night Olympic Coverage on NBC. Suddenly, I see this older, heavy-set guy with wavy hair wearing a uniform of some sort....he seems vaguely familiar...but why? A name comes to mind, "Simon." Hmm...Simon who? Then I hear it...those familiar Andy Taylor riffs. I turn up the volume...yes...it is...Duran Duran!!! Playing for the poor freezing Olympic Fans in Torino!!!

"Hungry Like the Wolf"

Ah...memories.

My favorite 80's song is "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears. Guess that's why I like the movie "Real Genius" so much. :)

Looking out a dirty old window...all the cars in the streets below go rushing by....I sit here alone and I wonder why....

GREAT SONG!

80s -- Anything by Duran Duran. My all-time favorite band. If John Taylor asked me to marry him, I'd leave my husband in a second and run away with my one true love. :wub: I've had a crush on John for 22 years. :blush:

90s -- It's definitely "Thurston Hearts The Who" by Bikini Kill. But I don't love Kathleen Hanna as much as I do John. :wub:

Is that the Bill Gates movie? I know that song was played on that movie. The song was most popular on the HBO show Dennis Miller Live.
