Do you like it? A lot of people I know hate it, but I love it. It was so melodic and the songs weren't about picking a shawty from the club.

Examples: Duran Duran, Talk Talk and Depeche Mode

I like a few songs from the 80s.

Depeche Mode are nice. Love their debut Speak And Spell.

Does Fleetwood Mac count?

Indeed, I think it's a bit unfair to compare them to Duran Duran.

Pretty sure they're 70's.

I don't know if I'd define Depeche Mode as cheesy 80's pop. I'd like to place them closer to synth pop than "cheese".

That's true. But soundwise I meant rather.

Talk Talk, didn't they release that album called Garden Of Eden or something with a tree on it?

Ever seen the music video for Everything Counts? If that's not cheesy, I don't know what is.

Yeah, and No Doubt wrote It's My Life

Well Queen is my favourite band of all time but I enjoy their 70's era more.

Only because of GTA Vice City do I love 80s pop.

Probably not because they only released two albums in the 80's, although Tango in the Night is brilliant.

Hell ya. It's all about Duran Duran, the Bangles, and that 99 Luftballons song.

Fleetwood Mac is a good band. Only heard Rumours which is a lovely album.
Should I dig deeper?

Pet Shop Boys. I love them.
That is all.

I like Depeche Mode, but aren't they New Wave, not pop?

I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"

They had some mainstream hits. I don't consider them to be a pop band, but they had some pop hits.
#27
You all wish you could release an album like Duran Duran's self-tiled first. Fuck the haters.


The Little Girls' "Earthquake Song" is pretty addictive, looked it up after it as mentioned in Less Than Zero and listened to it like twenty consecutive times.


And don't you motherfuckers tell me you don't like The Go-Gos....

Back then, people had to actually sing. No pro tools, no autotune. I wasn't even alive in the 80's and I think the pop music then was like Beethoven compared to the shit coming out these days.

Was that the Fame era or was that later?

The 80s were a magical time. Truly marvelous. I just wish I had been there.


80s alternative was beyond amazing (Echo & the Bunnymen ), and the actual pop music is, overall, pretty timeless. The fashion, and materialist culture, doesn't really hold up, but the music sure does.


Also, there's nothing terribly "cheesy" about Talk Talk. At least, what I've heard.

Stock, Aotken and Waterman?


I f*cking hate most of it to be honest.

There were some pretty good bands out, like, The Police were awesome, Bowie was good, Queen, Sting was good solo..

But as far as pop goes, and that crappy modern romantic rubbish, it was garbage in my opinion.
