    Ah there's so many idk where to start, I guess if I had to pick one it'd have to be I Wanna Dance With Somebody, gives off the best 80's vibe it almost feels like you've travelled back in time

    All of the rock and heavy metal released back then. Much more bombastic, much less self-important.

    Oh yeah, that instrumental song would be really good at a funeral, not only at your own one.

    Roger Waters, 5:01AM (The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking, Part 10)

    One of my favourite blues songs, done by Roger Waters in 1984, just before he formally left Pink Floyd. The whole album is very good, and massively underrated. It's another concept, about the thoughts going through a man's head as he's driving along, one late night; wondering if he should leave his wife and kids and start a new life as a lone wanderer.

    So many good tunes from the 80s. My favourite genres are new wave and synthpop. They just make me feel some kinda way.

    Enola Gay by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark https://www.youtube.com/embed/d5XJ2GiR6Bo

    Reap The Wild Wind by Ultravox https://www.youtube.com/embed/nf8PNsOn6w8

    Quiet Life by Japan https://www.youtube.com/embed/d-T2PawPyf0
