All good stuff, Jim. Huey Lewis (early stuff) was very good.

Some of My Lies are True

I am a Huey & the News fan as well. :)

I loved Sports, also during that same time frame, I was a big Cars fan.

Those songs were from their first album in 1980.

 

There are good songs on all their albums if you enjoy their music.

I forgot to metion "Hip to be Square" done by Huey Lewis (that song constantly pops into my head). Someone mentioned the Scorps..."Rock you like a Hurricane" has always been a song I enjoy listening to.

 

But something that I guess I'm partially embarrased about is that, during the 80s and very early 90s, my favorite song artist was Phil Collins. I couldn't get enough of the song "Everyday."

Also liked the Fat Boys, Run DMC and those kind of groups.

I got caught up in the "Walk this Way" hysteria around RUN D.M.C. at that time. I liked/like them, but I didn't get into much of the other rap from the time. The Fresh Prince was OK too. I recently bought "Raising Hell" on CD and I did find it king of annoying now.

I like Master of Puppets the best!  :headbang

I'm sick of Master of Puppets. It was brought back for no apparent reason, and all these people started saying they liked it when they hated it before.

 

Damn hypocrites. Not you guys but people who I know outside of the boards.

 

I personally like "Fade to Black."

 

Another favorite of mine from back then is Nirvana-Smells like Teen Spirit, and Rape Me.

It just hit me how many kids there are on here who can't remember a second of the 80's or might not have even been born in the 80s.

 

Kinda makes me feel old :crying

With all of this talk about 80s songs, how did all of you wear your hair in the 80s?

 

My hair looked very much like DJ's on "Full House."

HURRICANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :headbang :headbang :headbang

 

This song was the only thing that saved my sanity on my trek home last night. It's also when I found out my phone service is out (and might not be back until Saturday night - freaking SBC) - I went to leave the song on my answering machine and that f***ing voice told me my line was being checked for problems...

I listened to 97.9 when the Sox were on defense (I didn't want to jinx them lol). I did listen to all the Sox at bats though.

AND THE GREATEST SONG EVER.  I MEAN EVER, IN ANY DECADE, IN ANY CENTURY, AND IT CAME FROM THE 80's -

 

"The Whole of the Moon" - the Waterboys

Can't argue that one too much, as it also comes from one of the greatest albums ever, This Is The Sea, from one of the greatest bands ever, The Waterboys, written by one of the greatest songwriters ever, Mike Scott. I kind of fell out of them once they broke up, and the new versions of The Waterboys just aren't as special as the ones that did the work in the 80's. But for three albums, This Is The Sea, Fisherman's Blues, Room To Roam there were few better bands working then, and even fewer with that much talent going in them!

 

I am in awe of seeing a nod to them on this board right now, BTW.

Have you ever seen "American Psycho"?

 

The scene where Patrick Bateman puts on "It's Hip to Be Square", dances, then kills to the song is AWESOME!

Kind of like if you can remember the 60's you didn't live in the 60's ;)
