Anybody ever hear a song from this decade and think "hey that could have been an 80's song"? Here's one I think could pass as an 80's tune.

The Darkness totally sounds 80s. The first time I heard it, I thought it was an old 80s song that I had never heard of!

I was gonna say The Killers song "When You Were Young." Pretty much anything by The Killers really since they use alot of synths. "An Honest Mistake" by The Bravery sounds like it could have came out of the 80s too.......

I love The Killers. They sound very 80s, but some guy on yahoo entertainment ripped them a few weeks ago, saying they rip off U2 too much.
I still like them though!

U2???? Really??? I dont see it. They much more reminded me of PSYCHADELIC FURS or something like that.

I hated SAMS TOWN. I wish they had stayed with the sound from their first album.

oooh...just thought of another good one - SHE WANTS REVENGE.

I know everybody is going to say they hate this song but has anybody heard Shake It by METRO STATION? My daughter likes that song and I hate to admit its growing on me - and the only reason is that it sounds pretty '80s-ish.

Some Coldplay songs have that U2 feel.

Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous Girl" (not sure if that is the exact title) has that 80's synth-dance-pop sound.

Now the COLDPLAY - U2 connection I can definately see.

I remember awhile back a magazine (ROLLING STONE I think) called COLDPLAY "The New U2" and all these U2 fans got ****ed off. I cant blame them. COLDPLAY is good...but they ain't U2!

I liked early Coldplay but the new one ranks IMO. I don't see or hear the U2/Coldplay connection.....

That's right....they're still around and rockin' just as good as in the 80's. This tune is from their 2008 CD - Phoenix.

Devolution here,

The Killers and U2 should never be put in the same sentence together except is that sentence is "Man, the Killers sound nothing like U2."

The Killers are awesome, Sam's Town the song is so great you will probably want to run people over if you are driving. The best driving song since "kickstart my heart". The beginning is incredible.

We are DEVO

The only song I thought the Killers were trying hard to be like U2 was the beginning of On my list. Hiring Joshua Tree photographer Antonin Corbjin as your video director for All the things we've done was a sign as well.

There has been tons of groups/songs this decade that have been 80's influenced. in indie/alternative rock there was a period where the influnces were basically Gang of Four/Joy Division/Cure/XTC,.
Gang of Four-Bloc Party, Futureheads, Rapture, Franz Ferdinand, Radio 4,Maximo Park.
Joy Division-Interpol, Editors,
Cure/XTC-Rapture, Hot hot heat
Others like The Faint, Late of the Pier, MGMT remind me of the past.

I find Do it by Nelly Furtado has a real like 87 Madonna vibe. This band called White Rose Movement really is going for the 80's sound and look.

Richie, did you mean love like winter by AFI? that song definitely has an 80's sound to it. in fact, there are a couple of songs from the december underground album that sound a bit 80's. good choice.
