Musical Musings – Worst of the 80’s
I saw this post on Facebook yesterday and was gobsmacked:
It states that on October 6 2011, Starship’s We Built This City was named the worst song of the 1980’s, followed by Europe’s The Final Countdown, Chris de Burgh’s Lady in Red and Wham!’s Wake Me Up (Before You Go Go).
I’m gobsmacked that these songs are considered so bad because I think they are awesome. Sure they are daggy now but they each epitomise what the 1980’s were all about.
There’s the mainstream rock of Starship – this song is my first ever favourite song – I even remember the filmclip! There’s the long-haired glam rock of Europe, the slow adult contemporary tones of Chris de Burgh, plus the pop perfection of Wham! That’s the 80’s right there, if you ask me!
By the way I’m also gobsmacked because clearly I have poor taste in music, according to the readers of Rolling Stone…
Whatever, I’m going to play the so-called worst of the 1980’s today anyway – here’s to you, readers of Rolling Stone !
