Music of the 80s

It was quite an era of music. The end of the 70s brought change. Disco was fading out and fast! Here comes the 80s with some new faces and some familiar ones finding a resurgence of popularity.

There was such an eclectic selection of styles. We had the rap groups that brought injustices into the limelight, hair bands, metal, R&B groups, new wave, boy groups, a ton of one-hit wonders, some females breaking new ground, bands from the 70s changing for the times and bringing a fresh sound with them, “bubble gum” pop….I could go on and on!

I read an article that stated that 80s was the least diverse decade for music. I could not disagree more! Plus the 80s broke new ground. Such as females taking the lead. The women came out loud and proud, singing about everything from sex to their own power. Rock on ladies!

I loved and still love my 80s music. My iTunes is loaded with the 80s. It’s the soundtrack to my youth.
