This list is not meant to be a comprehensive list of early 80s music. I'm just trying to remember what most of us, as a group, liked to listen to. Much of what is here is stuff that I may not have picked up on my own, but owe to the taste of my dear friends:
Adam Ant Friend or Foe
David Bowie Let's Dance in particular
English Beat, The
Face Dancer "Red Shoes" a local phenomenon
Hall and Oates
Joe Jackson Night and Day and Look Sharp
Rainbow's Down to Earth
Styx The Grand Illusion
Vapors, The "Turning Japanese"
Yaz Upstairs at Eric's
I look forward to corrections and comments from my droogies.
