Favorite 80's metal album: Ride the Lightning
What I love about 80s music is that in most of the songs, the backgrounds have echoes (especially drums) which gives more depth to the music. A couple years ago Dream Theater released a best of, with earlier tracks such as Pull Me Under, remastered into a more "modern" sound. The result to me is really bland and actually makes the songs less epic. (Yes I know Pull Me Under is from 90s but you get the idea)
Also, synth rock band The Birthday Massacre's latest album has a strong 80's vibe.
I love 80's music. The best decade for music in my opinion. Some many great and memorable tunes. I don't know what is but nothing before or after the 80's comes close for me. I remember the first time I heard 80's music was playing Vice City and I was blown away. I have so many favourite tracks and albums it would be impossible to name them all but a top 10 would like this:
Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane Toto - Africa a-ha- Take On Me Jermaine Stewart - We Don't Have To Take Our Cloths Off Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal Stan Bush - The Touch Scandel - The Warrior The Human League - Don't You Want Me Spandu Ballet - To Cut A Long Story Short Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax
I love this song, my favourite from Duran Duran but I get the feeling it's underrated:
Also, gotta love some Hall & Oats:
And f*cking love me some New Order:
By the way, I find it sickening that the sh*tty Uniting Nations remix of Out of Touch is the most viewed version on Youtube. I mean, it's just a bunch of okay looking women shaking their camel toes at a card table with the songs chorus playing in the background (yes, I watched it ); that's the modern music industry for ya.
