Livin' in a river of darkness, beneath the neon light.

Everybody Wang Chung tonight!

OP, why choose a boring song like that to illustrate the 80s? There was a lot of great music in that decade.

"Take me out before ya go-go"?

Oh, dear.

OK R3, I see where you're headed. And I completely forgot about the Blow Monkeys -- thank you for the reminder!

Mr. Roboto was abysmal, however, as was Wild Wild West. But I'm with you on most of the other stuff.

Now here's one for you: Remember the song "19"? "N-n-n-n-n-nineteen! Nineteen!"

Mr Roboto and Wild Wild West were excellent. But whatever. No, I don't know 19. There was a Steely Dan song called Hey 19 but I don't think that's what you mean.

Night to night

Gimme the other, gimme the other

Chance tonight, Oh Yeah

Night to night

Gimme the other, gimme the other

Night to night

You won't play

A place

where nobody dared to go

The love that we came to know

They call it Xanadu

Here's a link to the video for "19". It was a popular song for about 20 minutes in the mid-'80's.

Big Country

most of Chaka Khan's '80's albums

How Soon is Now

Don't Dream It's Over

Sybil's 'My Love is Guaranteed' mixed w/MARRS 'Pump Up The Volume' (linked)

my best decade is happening right now

OP was intending to have a fun thread of song lyrics like the other one related to the seventies we had a few days ago.

But all you literal bitches spoiled it.

Somebody told me

That everything she wants

Is everything she sees...

by Anonymousreply 1505/18/2013

r14, OP didn't say anything about intent. if you want a thread to go down a certain path, specify it.

And there's a heart that's breaking down

this long-distance line tonight

I ain't missing you at all

Since you've been gone away.

I ain't missing you

No matter what I might say.
