80s Music?

I'm a 90s kinda guy (born 77), missed all the electronic cheese of the 80s. My Mrs a few years older loves the 80s.
For electronic/dance, the late 90s early 00s is still the best, far better than the current Guetta et all.
Oasis/Blur for Guitar music, it cannot be beaten!

Whats your views..

(I won't take offence, my music taste is VERY wide ranging)
Depending on which side of bed I get out of you’ll find me equally at home with Giuseppe Verdi - Libiamo ne' lieti calici to N.W.A. - Dopeman.

Five Star were supposed to be Britains answer to the Jackson 5, they weren't. In the 80's there were lots of electronica around on the fringes. Bands like The Human League, The Normal, Fad Gadget, Devo, Japan and Early Cure stuff was really good and far removed from the gooey Pink pop offered on TOTP's. Bauhaus were another great 80's band. If you don't know them, check 'em out. Bella Lugosi's dead is an 80's classic.

Must be too young, don't know any of those!
Herbie Hancock is one of the Giants from that Jazz era. Herbie was in some of Miles Davis' best bands. Weather Report is sadly gone with Joe Zawinul passing away many years ago. But definitely one of the best fusion bands there ever was. My son's hero is their bass player, Jaco Pastorius. Keith Jarrett is also an amazing piano player. Some amazing recordings of him with Jack DeJonette and Gary Peacock.

When Northern Soul had a lull in the 80's, a lot of Soulies wanted newer sounds, quality Disco and Jazz Funk, I remember "I thought it was you" being quite popular from Herbie Hancock in the Jazz Funk Rooms.
