Feeling 80s

I am feeling 80s tonight so I am going to listen to three of my most favorite songs of the 1980s.

First on tonight's playlist is Industry's State of the Nation.  Industry is a new wave band from New York City founded by a composer and studio engineer, Andrew Geyer, in 1978 but it was during 1983 that the band became really popular.  The band is composed of Mercury Caronia as the drummer, and Sean Kelly as the vocalist who is famous for the moniker "Industrial Complex".  Although the band was short lived, they left us with one of the most profound songs ever written.

I hope you are still with me, next is Suzanne Vega's Luka.  Just like Industry's State of the Nation, Luka talks about one of the issues of the society--child abuse and domestic violence.  Suzanne released the single in 1987 and it ranked 3rd on the Billboard Hot 100.

Queen is my most favorite band of the 80s.  Freddie Mercury is a legend!  I love all of their music so it is hard for me to find the one to post.  I finally decided to share with you their song I Want To Break Free that was released in 1984.  I just love the angst  of the song... and Freddie's moves are so crazy!
