This is a great thread because I too am stuck in the 80's, but more into the R&B, hip hop/rap, swingbeat, soul direction
So I suggest to start a thread for that direction instead of weeding through van Halen, Queensryche, Metallica etc
Not putting them down put it's just not what I'm listening to and it would be more time consuming to go through this thread finding music of my liking such as what crownshep posted (forgot about the Jamaica Funk tune, downloading it right now, thanks!)
What a douche. This thread isn't all about what "you" like. You didn't start it, so shut your fucking mouth.
