I <3 the 80s

I do indeed.  Musically, I appear to be stuck in the 1980’s.

Perhaps it’s because that was the time when I was first developing opinions about music and I had the opportunity to see so many good bands live… like…

  • the Cult—I went to Birmingham for that, with my friend Ruth
  • the Damned—I liked their earlier and later music
  • Big Country—…
  • The Jesus and Mary Chain—before they actually started playing their instruments, a very strange sound indeed
  • Siouxsie and the Banshees—what a great voice
  • the Sisters of Mercy—fantastic…

I still listen to these bands and more in this genre. But I also now listen to classical music, and other genres of music too.  But for some reason I still feel like I belong to the 1980’s.  The 1990’s was a real musical wasteland for me, and I have been making attempts not to let that happen in the Noughts (what do you call this decade)… but as I said… I ❤ the 80’s.
