Description
Some of the songs on this 'Best of the '80s' playlist were chart-topping and decade-defining hits; others weren't number one's but are still part of our collective unconscious due to their ubiquity on MTV and radio. Indeed, even if (you claim) you don't like '80s music, you probably still know all the words to these tunes thanks to the Marketing Machine. But beneath the hype, these are catchy and often anthemic songs, a fact that is more easily realized by hearing them live in concert. So whether you're looking to appreciate these '80s classics for their timeless songwriting, or if you prefer to close your eyes and let all of the contextual memories come flooding in, crank it up and enjoy!
