What a generic title for a post. I am just in reminiscing mode the past days as I have been actively communicating with my high school classmates as well as some batch mates. Since our alumni homecoming which our batch will be hosting is being planned, and our section's mini-reunion is about a few weeks from now, there are activities going on in the respective Yahoo groups.
Anyway, memories of the eighties are rushing back. I'm a child of the 80s. The music of that period is still so alive with me. I am a Top 40 kid and Kasey Casem was a companion every Sunday afternoon when I listen to him dish out the hits of the week.I even jot down the 40 songs and take very well note of their rankings. But my taste also extends from pop to new wave and alternative music.
I still have my old tapes and I still buy cds of my favorite bands back then. My husband too is a great fan of the 80s music. Here are thirteen of our favorite bands from the eighties in no particular order.
2. Red Hot Chili Peppers
3. The Smiths
4. The Cure
5. Gene Loves Jezebel
6. Tears for Fears
7. The Bolshoi
8. Gin Blossoms
9. Smashing Pumpkins
10. Duran Duran (I have to put in here that my husband is not a Durannie but I am a great fan of Nick Rhodes and John Taylor!)
11. Xmal Deutschland
12. Style Council (Our theme song by the way is You're the Best Thing by this band.)
13. Siouxsie & the Banshees (This group started mid-70s though but I came to know them as they were frequently played in a local alternative staion - WXB.)
What do you know, this inspired me to post every now and then about the 80s - music, movies, lifestyle, books, anything at all about the generation I grew up in.
