    Hey all! So just wondered what everyones fave 80s band/act is at the moment. Include your fave song by them and a reason why? (if you can be bothered ) - and maybe a youtube link?

    For me, it has to be Duran Duran - Planet Earth....

    Favourite 80s band for me would have to be The Smiths. Hard to say what my favourite song is by them as I love most of their songs but I think I would go for I Know Its Over.

    Ah-Ha! - Take On Me
    MJ ruled the 80s though

    I'm much more a fan of 90s music tbh.

    But my favourite thing to come out of the 1980s is House music. It's derivatives changed the musical landscape forever.
