Not a clue  !!  :o


No clue either, Ray...

To me the 80's are all about:

1) The Smiths
    - How Soon Is Now? - The song that at the age of 9 made me realise that I was queer and different...
    - Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before - Cleverly remade a couple of years ago by Mark Ronson, this is late 80s at its best.

2) Depeche Mode
    - Strangelove: One of the most perfect singles ever released.
   - Personal Jesus: Summer of '89, a nice way to head into the 90s.

 That's the dude from Scarface and he was Antonio Montana's right hand man, well before Antonio shot him for dating his sister.  If you are slightly familiar with Miami's 80's television programming he also played on the hit sitcom Que Pasa USA...  the show responsible for my limited bilingual capabilities!

Oh, Esteban Ernesto Echevarria (AKA Steven Bauer)?  I knew about him and Melanie Griffith, but not Ms. Manchester.

Que Pasa USA was actually fun.  The real Hialeah!

I love 80's music! That's an excellent mix!  Talk about a blast from the past, I remember Que Pasa USA - well, the only thing I really remember was Steven always wearing tight jeans but then again it was the 80's, everyone wore tight jeans and he wore them well!  ;)

As the song goes, I'm still preoccupied with 1985. There was a lot of good music. This is one of my favorite songs and the video still is effective today.

Unfortunate this video was cringe-worthy back then and has only gotten more embarrassing with age.

Although released in 1990, she is still an icon of the 80s:

Madonna ---  Vogue

that's great to hear, especially after Oakley did his little collab with the PSB on the extra material from their "Yes" cd

ah, it was in the late 80s when Randy and I owned our little pop-n-pop pet shop (WE were the original "pet shop boys" ;D), and the Pet Shop Boys were our heroes.

Great one hit wonder.  The stuff she released under her own name in the 90s (especially the soundtrack to 'Magnolia') was really good.

And here's one of the best rock songs of the 80s (long before the whole "alternative" wave became mainstream):

Janes' Addiction - Mountain Song (1988)

So much to chose from in the 1980s.  Going in the direction of dance music, here are a few gems:

Pet Shop Boys - "Always On My Mind" - 1987 - [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDe60CbIagg[/link]

Nu Shooz - "I Can't Wait" - 1986 - [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_Yx0X-eHn8[/link]

The Dazz Band - "Let It Whip" - 1982 - [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SE7-tWEEejU[/link]

Blondie - "Rapture" - 1981 - [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHCdS7O248g[/link]

I could go on and on and on....

Break Machine - Street dance
Rock Steady Crew - Hey you

God I had such a crush on Miss Whatley....  I don't know if many remember this, but it's Shannon.  She played at 6 Flags Atlantis in Hollywood, Florida in the mid 80's.  I wrote her fan club many times professing my love to her.  She never responded and it has really left a mark on my psyche..

Skeebo,

If we still had to use that machine, most would probably go back to "Britannica". lol

Liked the song though.

Any "Rumours"?:

First I will tantalize the board with various personal transmogrifications during the 80's, from Ian McCulloch-inspiration through Morrissey and to Vogue.

Then I will throw out some more suitable obscurities to trump the other offerings here, in my typical elitist fashion:

Fiercest Homo to Have Off'd Himself with Prescription Sedatives in a Room of Whippets
The Associates (f/Billy MacKenzie) - Skipping
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZeC5zOkroQ


Again 'cause I'm a Smiths-head, here's Morrissey's best solo single (along with two of his 90s' releases), which is supposedly an ode to MacKenzie.

Morrissey - Suedehead (1988 - UK #5)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AvuweztG4Q

PS./ You look fierce in your little 80's collage.

------------------------------------------
God I had such a crush on Miss Watley....  I don't know if many remember this, but it's Shannon.  She played at 6 Flags Atlantis in Hollywood, Florida in the mid 80's.  I wrote her fan club many times professing my love to her.  She never responded and it has really left a mark on my psyche..  

And for you Tom, I bet you also loved this lady (I had a crush on her in the same way that you loved Shannon).

Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance (1988 - UK & US #3)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWsRz3TJDEY

Neneh Cherry - Manchild (1989 - UK #5)

The eighties were incomplete without my girl Taylor Dane and "Prove your Love" and "Tell it to my Heart" I remember pulling folks to the dance floor and just go crazy.

That baseline use to have my neighbors pissed when I would drive down the street.  You didn't hear me coming, no you felt me coming.  My 1985 Cutlass Supreme was a rolling dance club with 8- 10" EV Force speakers in ithe back.... can still remember the police finding it laying flat on the ground in Liberty City.  You could look through the hood straight through to the trunk, they stripped that car bare, engine and all !

And of course this one:

Black Box - Ride on Time

Ooh, major choon; when House went pop :).  When that song was #1 we used to annoy my mother by singing its most screechy parts from the back seat of the car, eventually she had to join in.  Martha Wash gave life to so many great dance ditties.

I remember when there was a rumour that Katrin (the one who lip-synched for Black Box) was a transgender male.  She really looks like there a re some male hormones going on there in the video for "Fantasy" (1990).

Since you mention Technotronic, and on the subject of lip-synching (I guess Ya Kid K was too tomboyish and having a hot model from Zaire ghosting the vocals made things better), here's the pop-house song that led us into the 90's (I'm sure veritas will start a thread for the best decade ever pretty soon):

Ultra-cheesy video, still one of the best dance tracks to go mainstream.
Technotronic Feat. Felly - Pump Up The Jam (1989 - UK & US #2)

   Listening to a lot of this  makes me realize how much good music came out during this era.  The other night they had Freddie Mercury and Billy Idol back to back on the show Biography.  While we all know Mercury was a God, I think Billy Idol's music was a bit underated :

Eyes Without a Face :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXrWtcAiVJc

Then there was this, if you were into rap that is.  To tell the truth this may have never made airplay outside of Miami.  Ignore the name on the label and I think everyone would be surprised at how different this was from the garbage they put out later, of course this was before Luke came along:

  I have to ask, what is that used for?  I thought that was the stuff people used to make others pass out or something.  After being here roughly 4 years I finally figured out what poppers were, I was wrong when I thought you guys were talking about something from Chile's restautant obviously.

Another highly produced band at the time was the KLF.

Those must have been the days.  Too bad I was nowhere near clubbing age to experience that sight.

I bet one song that required heavy consumption of poppers was the [arguably] first House track ever.  I know Philly will fight me on this one.

1) Jesse Saunders - On And On (1984)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUeMFG4wjJw

And then came this lovely Deep House melody (in my opinion this should have been huge)

2) Mr. Fingers - Can You Feel It (1985)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckujrmo3sPw

3) And one of my all-time favourites whether House or not (perhaps the first cross-over house anthem to hit #1)

M|A|R|R|S - Pump Up the Volume (1987 - UK #1)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGPhUr-T6UM

The Clash - "Rock the Casbah" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJ9r8LMU9bQ  Still one of my favorite songs for doing heavy weights, plus you have to love a video that has an armadillo running around in it.

Romeo Void - "Never Say Never" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePIImGMjn_8  Debora Iyall was criticized for not being slender and pretty but I thought her look and voice was spot on for this song. Beth Ditto of Gossip reminds me of a 21st century Iyall.

Joan Jett - "Bad Reputation"  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RAQXg0IdfI  Classic.

ZZ Top - "Gimme All Your Lovin'" http://video.aol.com/video-detail/zz-top-gimme-all-your-lovin/2926974410  I remember going to see ZZ Top at the Asheville Civic Center. It's a blur of marijuana smoke, fist fights, vomit and confederate flags... and I was sober.

Stevie Nicks with Tom Petty - "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UD0c58nNCQ  I love both Steve Nicks and Tom Petty, so this was a treat.
