Why I Do This

I was lucky enough to be a teenager through the eighties and I was mad on music, big hair, bad make-up and all that went with being a teenager of the times. All these years later I still have the big hair but now it is "touched" with grey and the bad make-up is gone but the tunes still play loudly in my head and even louder if they grace my radio, tv or mp3player. I will gladly admit to being a"mainstream" fan for the most part but I do have the odd liking for some of the less "played to death" bands of the time. What started all this was a drawer full of slowly decaying cassettes and a fear of losing the music that is on them. So I began to recreate them onto CD and I am loving it and finding some fantastic albums along the way.

I would like to re-dedicate this site to my late husband, he lost his long battle with cancer in 2011, he was a huge 80's fan, possibly even more so than myself. So for you my love.

OMG a good little compilation here! Shaddup You Face by Joe Dolce - classic track. I got in trouble for singing it in class when it was a current top 40 hit.
Takes me back to the good old days of when I was in 6th Grade :O virtually every track on this was a radio hit back then.
My fave track from this is 'When I'm With You' by Sparks.
My least fave is 'Jesse' by Carly Simon (I never liked the song when it was new, but now it's a classic, I'm not so fussed about it) - goes to show what happens once you get older, you eventually realize how good the old stuff really was and then compare it to current stuff today... big difference.
2 thumbs up! exc. qual - all stereo, no dramas. thanks for posting!
