Why You Just Can’t Beat It – The ’80s, That Is

 

Video may have killed the radio star, but it sure lived the high life in the ‘80s. For those of us who know where we were when MTV moonwalked into our living rooms, nothing beats the golden vibe of techno, glam and synthesizers. All night long, baby!From Michael to Blondie to Madonna, something about that ‘80s sound got us off the wall and onto the dance floor. Hair was big and so were the shoulder pads. “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” wasn’t just a song by Wang Chung, it was a mantra. Studio 54, anyone?

Hip Hop Was in the House

Not to burst a Millennial’s bubble, but Hip Hop was around waaaay before it lived in your phone. The ‘80s urban scene brought us Grandmaster Flash and the Sugarhill Gang, and the “woofa woofa” scratch-scatch of turntablism was born. Not bad for an era when rotary dial-up was still a thing!

From Aerosmith to Queen, and Everything in Between
