Relax

The 80's.
They were an odd time.

The mad shoulder pads. The girls with 'Big' permed hair. Those TV movies, starring either Cheryl Ladd or Jaclyn Smith. How bad were they...?



Well that song by Mika..'Grace Kelly' got me thinking about irritating songs. It reminds me of an 80's song - 'Kissing with Confidence' by Will Powers (Carly Simon) which was, for me, a real Goat getter.

But by far the worst one from the Eighty's must have been Laurie Anderson's 'Oh Superman'

How did that ever get to No.1 ? click here

Dont knock the 80's music.
More cover versions on the 80's than any other decade.

I think that Kissing With Confidence song was on the first Now album from 1983 - which I have on vinyl... *blushes*

I agree that that particular song is pants but the 80's is my favourite music era as I was (and still am) into electronic music and the 80's was the first time it was 'experimented' with so to speak.

Aha! Now I understand - yes, 'twas I. I thought that you were apologising for her being a phenomenon.

for a minute I thought you were quoting from that other Eighties Classic by the Police.

"Do do do De da da da"
