    I have a $100 bill with 80s on it.

    I've been really enjoying this new trend of 80s style music by bands like Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, The Kaiser Chiefs, et al.

    It's time for me to jump into the time machine and go back to discover the 'real' thing. As mentioned in a previous discussion between Davey and I, I was a real metalhead in the 80's. I much preferred Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath over the New Wave and Punk bands of the times.

    So now I want to go back and revisit the music that I missed. Who are the bands that I should be looking into? What are the CDs that I should be buying? What should no good 80s music collection be without?

    Please help me put together a shopping list. I don't even know where to start.

    Thanks.

    Off the top of my head:

    Violent Femmes - s/t

    Pixies - Doolittle

    Smiths - The Queen Is Dead

    Feelies - Crazy Rhythms

    Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy

    Replacements - Let It Be; Tim; Pleased to Meet Me

    Husker Du - Zen Arcade; New Day Rising; Warehouse: Songs and Stories

    Stone Roses - s/t

    New Order - Low Life

    There are many more that I'm not thinking of, I'm sure, and I didn't get into the punk stuff at all. Or you could just get copies of the 10 or so 80s comps that were done a few years back around here and go from there.
    And the world will turn to flowing pink vapor stew.

    I like a lot of the 'new wave' 80s music. Most record stores have a compilations section. I've seen huge numbers of 80s comp cds. I own about 8 of them.

    For me,the 80's lacked what the 60's into the mid/late 70's did.

    Jesus and Mary Chain is definitely a must. If you listen to indie rock music of today and then throw on a Jesus and Mary Chain album.... you'll see.

    and they were excellent. I can copy a couple for you. The idea was to pick a particular year and comp songs from that year only. I'll have to dig thru my vault, but some of the bands Stone already mentioned are on it. It appears you missed out on some of the best stuff from that era (Gang of Four, Dream Syndicate, Echo & the Bunnymen), but we can hook you up big time.

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    I'm in the process of going back and giving the "authentic" 80s sound another listen. I didn't care for it too much when I was growing up back then, but I'm enjoying it now. Here are some albums on my wish list based on tracks from each that I've been listening to a lot lately.

    Echo and the Bunnymen - Ocean Rain
    The Cure - Disintegration (and probably Pornography and Faith)
    Tears for Fears - The Hurting (and maybe Songs from the Big Chair for nostalgia's sake)
    Roxy Music - Avalon
    The Jesus & Mary Chain - Psychocandy, Darklands and maybe Automatic
    Joy Division - not sure which album or albums yet
    New Order - see "Joy Division"
    Psychedelic Furs - maybe, if I have some $$$ left over

    Here are a few 80s albums I've owned since forever it seems, but I would put these in another category:

    Sonic Youth - Evol, Sister and Daydream Nation
    Pixies - Surfer Rosa, Doolittle and Bossanova

    Good additions to the list. And I could add Kate Bush, Galaxie 500, The Connells, and Jane's Addiction (still without jumping into the punk arena), while still remaining pretty accessible.

    Just to avoid confusion, there were two sets of comps:

    (1) the 80s series (most of which had Stuck In the 80s in the title), of which there were 8 or 10 (or maybe more); and

    (2) the "year" comps, where each person picked a different year and prepared a comp of music from that particular year - I believe most of the years in the 80s were covered, but the one from 1985 is probably the best one....

    Hopefully Davey will show up soon and just provide a link to the track lists of the suckers.

    Well, I showed up. The old comp4trade site is at http://members.mailaka.net/davey/rav...comp4trade.htm although it hasn't been maintained for a few years and there are only a few of the Stuck in the Eighties comps listed. But yours is there.

    Good luck

    I really like the stuff that's been suggested so far, but people are also forgetting the great albums that happened to sell a lot as well:

    Michael Jackson, Thriller
    Prince, 1999 and Purple Rain
    Bruce Sprinsteen, Born in the USA
    Peter Gabriel, So
    Paul Simon, Graceland
    U2, The Joshua Tree (actually, maybe that's been listed above)
    Madonna, Immaculate Collection
    Van Halen, 1984
    Duran Duran, Rio or a hits collection

    Slightly less sales, but a Depeche Mode hits collection would be great.

    now you singing my tune

    not sure where Jim is these days, but I loved the 80's stuff and since you liked metal perhaps you'll like the harder edge stuff.

    1. Joy Divison: Unknown Pleasure / "80's Music" actually started in the Late 70's
    2. Chameleons: Script of the Bridge / Perhaps the greats 80's CD ever!!!
    3. Smiths: Greatest Hits or Best of, I can't recall but it has 20 songs on it and is a remastered Import
    4. & .5 Cure: Boys Don't Cry and 17 Seconds / can't decide so get them BOTH...
    6. Sisters of Mercy: Some Girls Wander by Mistake/ turn the lights down, spark a cigar and grab a beer...
    7. Madness: On Step Beyond / you finished some beers and ready to move
    8. The Cult: Greatest Hits / You probably were already into them as they are very hard rockin'
    9. Stary Cats: Greatest Hits / the one with 20 songs on it / some wicked guitar work
    10. Stranglers: Feline
    11. & 12. Simple Minds: New Gold Dream and Sons & Facination / both awesome
    13. Wild Swans: Bringing Home the Ashes / good luck finding it, this is perhaps the greatest under appreciated release of the 80's, $70 plus on ebay, Jim Clark and I both have it.

    There's plenty more but me fingers are tired...

    good luck

    You really had me going there up to about # 6. Can't say I was a big fan of the rest, although I'm not familiar with the Wild Swans. The Sisters of Mercy really fokin' rawked.

    So WTF have you been up to? You used to be one of the most prolific posters a few years back, and this is the first I remember seeing you since then.

    But WTF, here's a few more ....

    Gang of Four - Entertainment (actually '79, but certainly embodies the spirit of the '80s)
    Wire - Chairs Missing (the most "'80s" sounding of thier classic first three albums
    The Sound - From The Lions Mouth
    Echo & the Bunnymen - I'd go with Crocodiles (or their G-hits album, Songs to Learn and Sing)
    XTC - Drums & Wires
    R.E.M. - Murmer
    B-52s - st
    The Jam - Sound Affects
    Martha & the Muffins - Metro Music
    Pursuit of Happiness - Love Junk
    54-40 - Show Me
    The Northern Pikes - st (the last 4 are the requisite Canadian content...don't want the CRTC on your ass).
    Gary Numan - Replicas
    The Pogues - If I Should Fall From Grace w/God (Little to do with the current sounds you're enjoying, but a stone-cold-classic nonetheless).
    Siouxsie & the Banshees - Kaleidescope
    Talking Heads - Fear of Music (has no one mentioned this one yet? For shame.)

    How are you doing Swish? to tell ya the truth, since I started into photgraphy it is consuming all of my Computer time and most all of my CD spending money. I have a website and shoot with (hot) Models every weekend.

    I still pickup some things here and there, I even have a hot tip for anyone who thinks they might like this sort of thing: The Spacious Mind: Live Volume One / do you own thing, but don't touch ours (live in Skogsnas 26/10/99). Wow, this thing is mega hot, only 5 songs, but they are 8, 12, 13, 14 & 23 minutes long!!! The first song is the 23 minuter and sounds EXACTLY like Pink Floyd must have sounded live in 1970, it is a friggen trip, the rest of the CD is great too.

    anyway, the wild swans, were a band that sounded like a mixture of the smiths (no hot leads or as flamboyent as morrisey) but the angst in their lyrics and perhaps someone on the mellow side with great melodies and tunes like echo and the bunnymen or lightning seeds. It is a cd that grows on you and you will be loving nearly every song after multiple listens. i need so much stuff, I would love to do a cd-r trade with you for it, just say the word.

    I thought this was a thread about dollar bill poker...

    Mine are definitely more synth-oriented than e.g., Franz Ferdinand, but here ya go:

    New Order, Power Corruption & Lies and Low-Life (seminal)
    Yeah, definitely some Joe Jackson, especially Beat Crazy if you can find it, but I'm the Man will do in a pinch.
    Gary Numan, Premier Hits (besides, it gives you "Stormtrooper in Drag", my favourite song from that era)
    Human League, Dare (seminal)
    Cars, Just What I Needed (compilation)
    Yaz, Upstairs at Eric's
    The The, Infected (everyone else will tell you Soul Mining -- that's good, too)
    Talk Talk, The Party's Over (synthpop finery)
    Ministry, With Sympathy (ditto)
    Soft Cell, Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret (silly fun)
    Gang of Four, Entertainment

    I'll see if I can't think of some more guitarsy stuff if I can think about it (New Order, Joe Jackson, The The, Gang of Four and Cars qualify).

    A few of my favorites from the era...

    New Order: Power, Corruption and Lies
    Echo and the Bunnymen; Ocean Rain
    Jesus and the Mary Chain: Darklands
    Yaz: Upstairs at Erics
    Thompson Twins: Sidekicks
    English Beat: I Just Can't Stop It
    Love & Rockets: Express
    The Cure: Seventeen Seconds (or just start with the Standing on the Beach compilation)
    The Jam: Modern World
    Talking Heads: Fear of Music
    The Cars: Self-titled
    The The: Soul Mining

    I'll leave out the punk stuff from the era, since mostly then I listened to hardcore stuff that I don't think you're interested in. If you are interested in the melodic, poppy side of punk that has influenced a lot of modern bands, they came a little earlier, but you should absolutely go grab a copy of the Buzzcocks: Singles Going Steady.

    Also, in a more straight-up rock vein, just since i listed to them last night and they were in the 80s, I'll mention thet the Smithereens: Especially for You was a fantastic album.

    anyway, the wild swans, were a band that sounded like a mixture of the smiths (no hot leads or as flamboyent as morrisey) but the angst in their lyrics and perhaps someone on the mellow side with great melodies and tunes like echo and the bunnymen or lightning seeds. It is a cd that grows on you and you will be loving nearly every song after multiple listens. i need so much stuff, I would love to do a cd-r trade with you for it, just say the word.
    Hey dude, I would love to hear that. I'll PM you and we can work out the details without so many others spying on our conversation.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

Don't mean to be argumentative.

    I'd second your Smithereens selection...Green Thoughts ain't half bad either.

    I'd also throw in Wire Train's In A Chamber, certainly not essential, but a real good example of the kind of music FA is enjoying these days.

    You're probably right. Really, I just like everything by The Jam, and it was the first one that popped into my head, so I went with it. Sound Effects is one I really like too, especially for the 1-2 punch of Start! and That's Entertainment. Bottom line as far as I am concerned...if it's by The Jam, just grab it.
