Which Side of the Atlantic?
On a taxi ride to the Exeter Airport from the train station in 2007, the driver talked about great 80’s songs. I joined in, thinking that he was speaking of the New Romantic movement. Imagine my surprise when I finally cottoned on to the fact he was talking about American groups.
Here is a sampling from both sides, now:
Duran Duran: Is There Something I Should Know?
Peter Gabriel: Don’t Give Up (ft. Kate Bush)
Mike & The Mechanics: The Living Years
Roxy Music: More Than This
Spandau Ballet: True
Phil Collins: In The Air Tonight
Foreigner: I Want To Know What Love Is
Fleetwood Mac: Little Lies
Cyndi Lauper: Time After Time
Richard Marx: Right Here Waiting
Twelve videos, six from each side. Which are your favourites? I like them all.
