80s Music

80s Music – Musically we had an enormous  variety From the start of the eighties we had the New Romantics and at the end we finished up with Old Skool House the 80’s had a lot to offer in terms of music and it is still very relevant on todays dancefloor.

Can you feel it Mr Fingers
Rhythm Is A Mystery K-Klass
Can You Feel It? CLS
You Got The Love The Source

Is a long way in music terms and involved many artists and 80’s hits along the way and these are the top songs of the 80’s that the majority of people will think of when thinking of 80’s hits

Kajagoogoo Too Shy
Never Too Much Luther Vandross
Pump Up The Volume M A R R S
Club Tropicana Wham!
Vogue Madonna

The 80s was also a time of love songs and ballards such as these, regularly played at nightclubs across the UK in the aptly named erection section that was a must for any self respecting 80’s night club. No Tinder in those days…….

Fat Larry’s Band – Zoom

Sade – Your Love is King

Mary Jane Girls – All Night Long

Style Council – You’re the Best Thing

Many artists are associated with the 80s but their influence on modern music has been substantial
