I'm not really into 80s synthpop but I like this one:
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIiyT67Sjbg]
I like it mainly because Alison Moyet sings on it, I like her voice.
[@1114676,HairbrushDiva] I love yahoo as well…such a great band.
Oneofthestormboys · 51-55, M
[@1114676,HairbrushDiva] I’ve seen her live twice - once with Yazoo in the 80s, and then completely by surprise a couple of years ago as she was supporting Tears For Fears. She was bloody good both times.
HairbrushDiva · 31-35, F
[@477979,Oneofthestormboys] I don't care much for Tears For Fears.
I Ham by a Flock of Hamgulls.
Ladystarlight25 · 51-55, F
I'm going to go with Planet Earth by Duran Duran 🎼🎹🎵🎶
Oneofthestormboys · 51-55, M
[@1157717,Ladystarlight25] Oh I remember that one!
They were the band that all the girls loved, but they were a proper band who could play live. Ah we lived in a great era for music for sure!
Ladystarlight25 · 51-55, F
[@477979,Oneofthestormboys] Posters of them covered my wall. I really had it bad for the drummer 🥁😍😂 I never did manage to convince my rocker brother that they were a real band.
SumKindaMunster · 51-55, M
Blue Monday by New Order

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1GxjzHm5us]

[@477979,Oneofthestormboys] I saw ABC a couple of years back with a full orchestra. It was absolutely fabulous!
Oneofthestormboys · 51-55, M
[@1157717,Ladystarlight25] Great isn’t it? Glad you liked!
I really liked this group...

Has to be Depeche Mode, though I like their 90s stuff better. From the late 80s onwards, they went in a rock tinged goth direction. But much better that the actual goth bands:

Here’s one for the Dolby fans - cracking track, and little bits of Eddie Van Halen on guitar as well! This one’s a really groovy one...[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SSAqXKPZns]

Maybe Alphaville or Ultravox. I don't know; I can never pick a favorite! So many bands, so little time...

Vienna by Ultravox was actually seminal in the early 80s.

[@422868,Burnley123] Amazing band at the time.
Burnley123 · 36-40, M
[@619287,Jwalker] And now. They are a band that influenced so many others. Their music has aged well too.
[@422868,Burnley123] David is a brilliant guy.
