If he'd play "Musicology" (or similar boring pop songs), I'd fell asleep instantly, so I wouldn't see much from the show...

If you know your Parliament, you know that they are all about P-Funk, uncut funk, da bomb

I've heard of people taking things too literally, but... wow. :tu:

Serious mode: Prince is a single musician.. a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, performer. He has written music in so many different genres. Comparing him with Parliament (a changing, loose collective of musicians with an erratic output that is high on jamming and groove and low on songwriting) is like comparing apples and spider monkeys.

Before I had linked to a Dead Can Dance track - the 80s saw the birth of Ivo-Watts-Russell's 4AD/Beggar's Banquet labels and it's core of artists which included DCD, The Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus for a while, Throwing Muses and The Pixies. This was like a whole musical movement within a single label.

What was real interesting about 4AD is the studio "supergroup" that Ivo assembled out of the 4AD roster under the name This Mortal Coil - a loose grouping that was formed specifically to do covers - highly variant covers, but covers. This Mortal Coil covered songs by Van Morrison, Tim Buckley, Colin Newman, Tom Rapp, Judy Collins, Gene Clark, Talking Heads... weird dark, doomy versions of these songs. In my opinion, "Filigree and Shadow" is one of the finest albums of the 80s.

80s is 80s music. 90s is 90s music - et cetera.

There are a few elements being incorporated into contemporary music but the actual thought of a musical decade coming back is impossible.

I've been thoroughly enjoying this 80s synth revival stuff since I stumbled on it in 2011 or something. I think I first came across Kavinsky or Lazerhawk, followed by Com Truise (LOVE Com Truise stuff).
Also the (so he says) all-Synth1-produced stuff from MPM aka Multipac (now called MPM Soundtracks), and certainly Mitch Murder and Maethelvin.
Etc.,etc., blah,blah,blah...

I was born in '74, so I was a young kid in the 80s. To me there's "the eighties" and then there's "THE 80s!". To me THE 80s! is '82-'85...sometimes '86.
Despite many bands I love operating during the 80s (Rush, Skinny Puppy and other) I guess to me the 80s will always be pop and synthpop.

Pop and b-movie soundtracks. Not just great stuff like Escape From New York either, but really, really simple things. Those three-note incidental synth cues sounded so cool to me as a kid. :D
Music from things like "Wired to Kill", "Future-Kill", "Warrior of the Lost World", "Endgame" and such.

I spent my earliest years being innundated with classic country music via my parents and 70s pop and rock from my older sisters. I guess it was the 80s when I was first old enough to kinda decide for myself. I had my own radio and was buying my own singles and stuff...and a local UHF channel played music videos the whole time it was on air (early in the morning to about 2am), so even though I didn't have cable and MTV I was still exposed to Thomson Twins, Heaven 17 and tons of others that folks here in the States referred to as being part of the second British invasion.
Couple that with an early love of b-grade sci-fi movies.

I love 80s pop lyrics too for their simplicity but also their absurdity. Once talking music and lyrics I mentioned that to properly see how absurd some love song lyrics were one should say the lyrics out loud in a flat, very matter-of-fact conversational tone. This became a long-lasting habit of ours causing much laughter (we were in high school so that was easy).
Our fave was: "If you won't take my kisses in the night...then...jump...jumpformylove."

But it was this era that made me fall in love with the sound of synthesizers in general. I was fascinated by them but they seemed so weird and complicated (unfortunately to me they still are :roll: :help: ). Later I fell for bass and it ended up being the first thing I played (and the only thing until delving into computer-based stuff about 10 years ago...ahh...I could finally have a synth I could afford!). :party:

This is nostalgia by those of a certain age (who missed it first time around). The 80's aint coming back, and neither are the 60's, 70's etc etc etc ...
