My iTunes playlist is mostly video game songs ( primarily Nintendo tunes ) but the majority of non game songs are from the 80's. In fact, over the last hour or so I've heard:

Down Under
The Look
Never Gonna Give You Up
Everybody Wants To Rule The World
You're The Inspiration
Thriller
Smooth Criminal
Beat It
The Way You make Me Feel
Safety Dance
I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore
Waiting For A Girl Like You
I'm Gonna Be ( 500 Miles )
I Want To Know What Love Is
I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight
Billie Jean
Is This Love?
Holding Out For A Hero
You're The Best Around
Straight Up
I Think We're Alone Now
These Dreams
Out Of Touch
The Touch
Heaven Is A Place On Earth
I Melt With You
You Spin Me Round ( Like A Record )


I just can't get into 99% of music after 1990.....I love the 80's!

tragic time to be stuck in, and some of those songs are tragic.
That said, my opinion is far from objective.
If you like a genre, music form a certain period, or whatever then that's what you like and it's personal, and that's okay.
I like a lot of different stuff, from baroque music, to some hip hop, hard rock, dance music, punk, some older commercial music, and even some county music (gagging as I realise what I've admitted to).
if you like music it's because somehow it speaks to you, or you relate it to a time or experience in your life.
Just don't be closed off to other genres or periods of time; true enough a lot of the current popular music, as well as the cultural phenomenon of "talent shows" is pretty dull, and lifeless, not to mention shallow and meaningless compared to some other stuff.
On the other hand some of the best music makes little or no sense.
Little Richard is considered classic Rock n Roll, but wop bop a lu op a lop bamboo doesn't mean anything in any language.
I guess just be happy you have music to listen to that you enjoy.
Some people don't like music at all, and to me that would be as alien as having 2 heads!

Nice thread!

For a list (and links) to some of the 70s&80s songs that I dig, read pg 2 of the current thread, titled: "Post a song that's so beautiful...(...shed tears to)".

I was born in 1975 and, honestly, have always felt very sorry for anyone who had to grow-up listening to only 90s music. Early-80's music was so fun! The music from late-70s and early-80s was, imho, tote kick-ass. Hell, this is making me wanna listen to "There's Something About You" by Level 42! Here's a live version: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yo8QSVEluEI
