MA-87 - It Exploded from the 1980s


While pop music in the 1960s and 1970s was wonderful -- I grew up with the Beatles, the Grass Roots, Guess Who, etc, etc in the air -- there's a deep fountain of wonderful and fun creativity (and even more crap) to be found in the pop music of the 1980s.

Some of it I heard on the radio or on albums ... some I've discovered more recently.  Hence this continuation (with many more to come) of what for me are some of the decade's greatest (and/or weirdest) musical moments.

You can find the previous instalment, MA-15 - It Escaped from the 1980s, here.
