Practically all of my favourite songs, if not all of them, are from the 80’s. Whilst my music taste does vary hugely – from the most beautiful pieces by Ludovico Einaudi to Darude’s Sandstorm – I do generally always gravitate back to the 80’s.
When you think of the 80’s, do you think of rubbish hair, garish coloured clothing and cheesy music? I used to. I wasn’t completely wrong either. The 80’s had some fantastically cheesy songs, like Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship (which is, I admit, one of my favourite songs of all time). Then, on the flip side, you’ve got the likes of Kiss, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard and Guns N’ Roses who all inject a dollop of rock into the decade. I just can’t get enough of all of them.
Until I made this playlist, I listened to Absolute Radio 80’s and Classic Rock daily. All the adverts and unwanted snippets of news got a bit annoying though, so I thought I’d make my own. I included bits of classic 80’s cheese, power ballads, rock songs and old favourites so it’s a pretty varied mix.
If you like good music, I’m sure you’re going to love something from this playlist.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
