My Ten Favorite Bands/Singers of the 80s

  • Echo and the Bunnymen
  • Tears For Fears
  • Arcadia
  • Duran Duran
  • ABC
  • David Bowie
  • A-ha
  • Public Image Limited
  • The Jesus and Mary Chain
  • Flesh For Lulu

Most of these would be on my list, too, but I have to say that although I like Bowie and I like the 80s, that was not my favorite decade for him. Duran Duran, on the other hand, was made for the 80s.

I think that you may be right in that the 80s were not the greatest for Bowie - neither were the 90s for that matter. But it wasn't until 1983 that I started really listening to him... I've been hooked ever since.
