Mostly 80s (late 70s and early 90s) Music, some of which is sure to please or just plain stink

All musical styles/comments welcome of course, but I will basically be posting 80s gems/junk

Also a place that keeps me from hauntingly spamming other threads and ticking folks off

So grab your favorite scoop and start sorting, lumps of coal or diamonds

Self Control was a huge hit in 1984. First done by RAF (Italian Singer) but quickly covered by Lauri. The song has been covered numerous times since. I will include a few versions.

I had forgotten about that song Roo, thanks... I don't have but an different remix by them that was not great quality. But perhaps it will tickle your fancy, if not, throw it in the cat box.

I loved a lot of the Smiths.. What was not to love beyond he was a nut (liberal one day, the next not for open borders).

Thanks again Roo...

Here is a compliment to your song.

One of my fave little known songs was this ... an anti-war song that flopped big time under Reagan, but it was catchy.

The Call were great and not too well known. Thanks dfwgator.

Also loved their songs "Let the Day Begin" and "I Still Believe (lost boys remix)"...

Also the Frankie songs were fun, but whoever remixed their stuff was freaking awesome. Some of the best remixes in the business at the time.
