    Okay so I think we've got enough people in this forum that actually remember the 80s as well as those who are knowledgeable enough. Think music, the hair, jelly bracelets, shoulder pads, pegged jeans, and on and on.

    I'll start off with Billy.

    "Love" was one of two records released in 1985 that did and still blow my mind with regularity.

    "Psychocandy" was a total epiphany record. The JAMC remains one of my favorite bands today.

    I've read multiple places that 1984 was the pinnacle of pop music...discuss among yourselves.

    I was born in 84, I'm one of those in-betweeners.

    I love the 80's, though.

    It's a cover but it's a damn good one.

    Speaking of covers here's a guilty pleasure.

    I love that you can (fairly) easily find good quality used records from the 80s.

    I didn't discover this song until Chicks on Speed did an electroclash cover. (Embarrassing?)
