    in my opinion, the songs from the 80s have so many classics, the staying power is simply unbelievable.

    The other night at Blue Bar Bistro, those guys sang Somebody by Depeche Mode...holy **** ... just fantastic

    Through the Barricades - Spandau Ballet
    Karma Chameleon - Culture Club

    and almost all those listed here..especially Garion's list!!!

    looks like Square Room is being played more frequently on radio too

    the 80's ROCKS man!!!
