I have a question. Why is it now cool to dress sort of 80's, listen to 80's music, and produce music that sounds like 80's music? Back in the 90's, all of the "hipster" kids thought that we were so lame growing up in the 80's. I remember going to buy Motley Crue concert tickets in 1999,(this was before you could buy them around here online) and the kid working at National Record Mart was disgusting- he had dirty clothes on and dreadlocks (Lord knows what grows in there). He ripped me dirty and laughed at me when I told him I needed to buy 4 tix to Motley Crue. Wonder what he is doing now- probably still hangin' at the mall with all of his dirty-hippie-wanna-be friends from the 90's!

My theory is that it's always a decade ahead. The 70's were supposed to be terrible for clothes etc, but in the 90's and early 00's me, my boyfriend and all my friends wore flares, garish floral shirts etc....we were totally 70's throwbacks....but then the 80's fashion started to be everywhere....now I notice high top trainers etc are coming back.....so that's my theory.

Yeah, that is a great song.
The single was no.1 for two weeks about a year ago
in the Finnish charts.

Strum und Drang´s second album Rock´n´roll Children
went straight to no.2 in the Finnish album chart this week.

You have to check out a band called

Black Tide

Very 80s sounding.

I'm also liking

Royal Bliss
Z02
Bullet For My Valentine
Rev Theory

There's a lot of good rock music out there right now you just have to look for it as it doesn't get much radioplay on mainstream stations. Thank god I have Music Choice.

Good choice on all Sam. I especially like Black Tide. Black Tide's "Shockwave" has a huge 80s feel to it........

Shy - Unfinished Business, 2002

 -

This band, "Shy", was more metal in the 80's and 90's, but in the 00's, they sound more like 80's AOR. Reminds me of bands like Journey now. The whole album, "Unfinished Business", totally blew me away.

A few songs that sound 80s-ish to me:

Glasvegas' "Geraldine"
web page

Cut Copy's "Lights & Music"
web page

The Killer's "The World That We Live In"
web page

Nelly Furtado's "Say it Right"
web page

I also think that the band Clear Static sounds very 80s-ish, especially "Dancing with Strangers", which I cant find a decent link to.

Shy - Skydiving (YouTube Clip)

This album is a masterpiece!
Cheers 80s!

Shake it by Metro Station
and
Fireflies by Owl City

Everytime I here either of these on the radio, I feel I am back in the 80s.

For some reason, I have always felt that the 2003 song "Hey Ya!" by Outkast sounds like it could've been released in the latter half of the 80's.

Room 5 featuring Oliver Cheatham, "Make Luv."

I think that could have come from the 80's.

My daughter likes on by LA ROUX called Bulletproof. If you didnt know any better youd swear it was 1985 and you were listening to ALISHA.

Ah... the old 'originality by theft' which is dependent on being too young to remember the original stuff.

If I ever hear modern songs that sound 80's, I just want to listen to original 80's songs. At least back in the day they were doing something 'new', rather than rehashing something else.

Rant rant grumble grumble.

Good call, Atomik, I really like HURTS. The handful of songs they've released so far are pretty good. Very much leaning towards late 80s slick synth stylings. I'm looking forward to the full debut album.

Another good synthpop group is Mirrors. This song, Into The Heart, sounds similar to Echo and The Bunnymen to me.

"Rush" is number 1 on the Finnish album chart right now.
Pretty good tune from this Finnish artist.
