’80s MUSIC / 1983 – Relax… or Dance! (Safely, that is!)

Ahhh the 1980s, when men looked like women and when the latter had square shoulders and short hair… but even when men did sport a mustache… there was still something a bit off… *cough* like in this next one!

Matthew Wilder – Break My Stride (1983)

Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) (1983)

Frankie Goes to Hollywood – Relax (1983)

A great one from Journey… younger folks might have heard this as the ringtone of Carl’s cellphone in the movie Yes Man (2009).

Journey – Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) (1983)

Men Without Hats – Safety Dance (1983)

I guess that “cum” back then didn’t mean what it does today!

Quiet Riot – Cum On Feel the Noise (1983 cover)

Styx – Mr. Roboto (1983)

Where’s ZZ Top? 2 right here!

ZZ Top – Gimme All Your Lovin’ (1983)

ZZ Top = Sharp Dressed Man (1983)

A timeless classic that will be played each year in October as long as Halloween will exist!

Michael Jackson – Thriller (1983/84)

Michael Jackson – Billie Jean (1983)

There’s an english version of this next one but the original is always better!

Nena – 99 Luftballons (1983/84)

There’s a french version of this next one… because it’s a band from Montréal Québec! However, here’s the english one:

Trans X – Living on Video (1983)

European folks might best remember the obscure band Laid Back. We had a vinyl record with extended versions of Sunshine Reggae & White Horse. I was not able to find an uncensored version of the latter sadly:

Laid Back – White Horse (1983)

Anyways, when you hear a blank, he actually says :”BITCH!”. The song was sampled a few times by other artists.

Funny video…

Herbie Hancock – Rock It (1983)

Bonnie Tyler – Total Eclipse of the Heart (1983)

How about some Italo Disco? Haha! Here’s Brando:

I can’t find anything on Wikipedia on this band or song…

Cyndi Lauper – Girls Just Want to Have Fun (1983)

The beginning of this next one might ring a bell for the younger folks… Pretty Fly, ‘eh?
