8 From the 80s: Pop Music

Each installment Mike will look back to the decade of decadence and provide a list of eight things – from movies to music to memorable moments and everything in-between.  Keep in mind, this isn’t a TOP 8 list and any numerical notations are included to merely designate one item from another. Because, frankly, how can rate one thing over another when it came from a decade as totally tubular as the 80s?

80's Pop Music
We all know pop music when we hear it. From early hits by The Beatles to the girl bands of the 50s and the lighter, non-folksy music of the 60s. The seventies saw an uptick in the number of acts and songs that could be categorized as pop music, but it was in the 80s that it really became a powerhouse genre in the music industry. From one hit wonders to perennial stars, there were hundreds of songs and acts that charted through the Top 40. Here are eight memorable acts that should never be forgotten.

(Those that know me or that have listened to the podcast know of my love of all things Prince, so know now he is not on this list.  He transcends "pop music".)

8 - Michael Jackson
The King of Pop. ‘Nuff said.

I Guess It's Time...

I guess it's time that we maybe start posting some stuff here again, even if it's not a podcast (which ISN'T dead, it's just sleeping).

Time to put the last quarter in and then get back to work.  Maybe we'll start with a new 8 From the 80s.
