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....

Taa, A x

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.

Definitely The Smiths. My favourites are; Hand in Glove, Bigmouth Strikes again, William it was really nothing, Girl Afraid and Shoplifters of the World Unite.

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