'80s songs - one a day Watch
Weclome to the '80s 'less well-known' tracks club! I've grown up with this music and have followed some of the histories of the various genres. It struck me that the '80s compilation stuff out there tends to repeat the same songs, so I wanted to create a thread that captures the more 'obscure' songs. I also like the 'fun fact' aspect behind the songs and artists. For example, I forgot to mention, with respect to Marilyn above ^^, that Paul Caplin (did maths at Cambridge), who produced his songs, was also the founding member of Animal Magnet, who supported Duran Duran on one of their early tours. The Birmingham connection! I'm also posting the songs by sub-genre: Coming up - Psychobilly, Alternative Post-Punk, and more! Oh, and it's 'one-a-day' because everyone needs to listen to one good/interesting song a day.
I know that there are already threads on this genre, but I noticed that the same songs tend to get posted. '80s (and House) are my favourite genres, and there are so many different 'sub-genres' that are worth listening to:
First, the political ones:
