    Default Memorable 80s songs

    '80s babies, post em. I'll start:









    It's hard for me to post more without repeating many of the tracks included in the GTA Vice City soundtrack, which has way too many awesome 80s tracks. Help me remember more.

    LOL@Fatboybrandon calling Slave's Watching You song Walking Down The Street hahahahahahahahahaha. Just A Touch song by them you said is called Just A Touch Of Love. Just A Touch Of Love and Watching You songs are classics. Slave is from my hometown Ohio. I think they're from Dayton, Ohio. Steve Arrington who was the lead singer of Slave is a church preacher now in Dayton. Check out these 80's r&b albums if you haven't heard them. 80's was a good decade for r&b and r&b hasn't been good since the 80's LOL.

    Those Bond soundtracks definitely have some joints on em, it must have been good living in the UK and growing up on those. The Living Daylights by A-Ha is another, and I think Never In Your Wildest Dreams by Tina Turner may be at the end credits of Living Daylights when Tim Dalton is in the pool with that girl.

    Phil Collins is great too especially Sussudio. The UK is a scene all it's own for the history of 80's R&B, even til this day the R&B Soul groups coming out are some of the best I can think of.




    ^My heroes of The 80's

    Change - Change of Heart, You Are My Melody, Warm

    LOL@London posting Oran Juice Jones In The Rain song hahahahahahaha. That song is funny especially when he starts talking at the end to a woman. LOL@him saying my first impulse was to run up on you and do a Rambo hahahahahahahaha. Whip out the jammy and bust both of you LOL. I stuck you up for every piece of jewelry i ever bought you LOL. I gave you silk suits, Gucci handbags, blue diamonds. I gave you things you couldn't even pronounce LOL. Silly rabbit. Trix are made for kids. Didn't you know that? LOL. You without me is like Corn Flakes without the milk LOL. He's a funny guy. I got his first album and it sucks but he has a jam on there called Curiosity and that's a tight jam. He talks at the beginning of the song and he's talking to a woman and he's dissing her LOL.


    I don't think too many people knew he had a small part in Juice movie with 2Pac, Omar Epps, Samuel Jackson. He was talking to Samuel at the video arcade place that Samuel worked at and him and Samuel was talking about women. Samuel said to him, just because you pour syrup on shit don't make it pancakes, you know what i'm saying hahahahahahahahaha. Samuel said i don't know why you thought the booty was that tough LOL. Oran said that's because she got the snappy nappy dugout LOL.

    ^My song of the day. It's a nice day outside so I felt the mood to hear this one from the legendary Quincy Jones. He and Patti Austin was one of the artists that made magic when they collaborated.

    That album "The Dude" sure is a piece of work, it's got production and synth work by Stevie, Greg Phillinganes, vocal contributions by MJ, and more great guest spots.
