Let’s Rewind the 80s! Comments Off
In honour of the Rewind the 80s festival on August 15th, we thought we would indulge in a little 80s nostalgia…
The 1980s was the decade that gave us MTV. Can you imagine life without it now?
Michael Jackson’s Thriller came out in 1982 and is to date the biggest selling album of all time.
The 1980s were definitely Jackson’s best years; he is the icon of the decade.
The 80s also gave us Whitney Houston, the amazing singer who later went on to become the most awarded female act of all time.
Closer to home, we had Duran Duran. Not quite as big as Jackson or Houston… but still great!
The Police were also pretty big in the 1980s… and so was their hair!
We also had U2 breaking onto the music scene with arguably some of their finest albums.
And of course, who could forget Dire Straits? They didn’t really have the iconic look, but they definitely had the iconic songs!
… but if iconic look is what you’re after, look no further than Adam and the Ants!
The question is: which was your favourite?
