Sorry, I must have imagined Take That, Boyzone, Westlife, Back Street Boys, N-Sync, East 17, Boys II Men, and Spice Girls
They were all dreamt up by Pete Waterman and co though, they're his wet dreams from being exposed to the radioactive computers that he spent 100% of his time with in the 80s. Clangers only done early 90s american bands, but they are all quite respected still now, and if you get the English, or british music scene people regard some of that as the greatest.
Go back to the 70s you have Led Zepp, The Who etc, 60s have those beatle people and that entire era - 67-73 is probably my personal fav era of music, JIMI HENDRIX anyone? Clapton. Neil Young. But the 80s? They have some great music bits and some very catchy tunes but it is mostly remembered for 'cheese on toast dunked in faeces' music, but I do believe motorhead, AC DC and Journey were created here, though I wouldn't be surprised if these guys are late 70s. Bob James, what is he?
Anyway, I would much rather have the classics from the widely regarded great eras and have an 80s radio station and that is all - none of that rap crap... you're on the dust.
By the by clang, me n you are in the minority in these forums for our 80s apathy, we should watch our backs and be wary for flock of seagulls haircuts and big collars /Racism
It's all in the game...
