Do you like music ? Chapter 3 part 43

After due consideration I decided this week to indulge in a short lived phenomenon, the mid eighties super-group. Created for the new MTV market, apart from a tendency to over lacquered mullets and polyester slub suits many of them were excellent fun to listen to. As a long time Steve Hacket fan I've plumped for GTR to represent the genre.

A genre I like

American Heartbeat is an album that's often on in the car with a similar sound.

Was looking through the tunes on your list and I like most of them, with one striking exception Babe by Styx, I really hate that song. If you want a Styx tune try this one.

"FE there's no need to tell me they're pretentious"

I wouldn't dream of it - I'll say formulaic instead.

Pretentious and formulaic I reckon!

To me they perfectly sum up how bad music in general was in the '80s. I largely lost interest in new music in that decade, it took the Stone Roses and the Brit Pop revolution to reinvigorate my interest just as punk did in the '70s after Glam Rock.
