Found 593 tracks, displaying page 1 of 12

This is where we keep the music that makes us think of the 1980's. This music wasn't actually composed or recorded in the 80's, but it has an 80's feel and sound, making these tracks suitable for Retro 1980s productions. Historical, even. (Even though, for those of us who grew up in the 1980s with Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, Grandmaster Flash, Human League and New Order's "Blue Monday", it feels really weird to talk about that era as "Historical"!)
