80’s Music

Posted by Bob Kohm on July 12, 2009

Saw a great, kitschy 80’s tribute band last night at a cool venue in Virginia. The interesting thing was that their playlist, which ranged from Cyndi Lauper to Ozzy to The Clash and Madonna, was all pulled off without a hitch. If a single band can play so many different types of music from a single era so well, it begs the question– was the band really that good, or was 80’s music that bad?

    Legwarmers are the best!!! And they are a very good band…. but I lean more towards the idea that 80s music was pretty cheesy, and probably not incredibly innovative. Of course, growing up in the 80s, I am hopelessly addicted to all things 80s and will always love every damn song and movie and video game created during that decade!!! 🙂
