Playlist: Eighties Live


Musically speaking, the Eighties don’t have the best reputation. There was Hair Metal, George Michael in different blazers, the electronic drum and MTV pushing music videos.  One often forgets that it was also the decade of the New Romantics, New Wave and early electronica. Here is a selection of timeless 80s classics, all performed live. You’ve guessed it, I do like analog synths. Full track listing if you continue reading.
