Blast from the Past : The Weekend Playlist #2

The 80s

The quality of music steadily improved over the decades in mid-1900s, and eventually peaked in the 80s. Some may disagree, but in my opinion, the 80s were easily one of the best decades for music in the United States. The decade witnessed the emergence of many successful artists who delivered solid hits, that are still relevant and part of many pop culture references today. The launch of MTV in 1981 upped the ante to produce interesting videos in an effort to increase the global outreach.

In this iteration, let's focus on the decade of eighties. The following playlist has some random songs from the 80s in no particular order. The previous playlist can be accessed from this location:

Love the guitar riff.

Featured in some of the Coke commercials in mid-2000s.

3. John Farnham - You're the Voice (1986)

Wasn't so popular in US, I believe. Great song nevertheless.

Grammy winner.

Very popular in pop culture.

Enjoy!

Expect to be hit with something unexpected @00:00:52s. Featured in one of the episodes of King of the Hill.

Who wouldn't like models in uniform fiddling with guitars and musical instruments.
