A very sad memory today...😔 The world lost a great man and an incredible artist on April 1, 1984. Marvin Gaye, Jr. was shot by his own father, Marvin Gaye, Sr. It’s just unthinkable. But his music will forever live on! #marvingayejr #legend #singersongwriter #recordproducer #bestvocals #rhythmandbluesmusic #soulmusic #jazzmusic #popmusic #60smusic #70smusic #80smusic #mercymercyme #savethechildren #ihearditthroughthegrapevine #sexualhealing #whatsgoingon #letsgetitonmarvingaye

🍊Orange Juice’s “Rip It Up” music video, 1983🍊 • • • I only started listening to them a month ago, but I already love them w my whole heart omg IT’S SO HARD NOT TO • • • *I do not own the rights to this music or video* (credits to Orange Juice on YouTube) #orangejuice #edwyncollins #ripitup #80smusic #80s #1980s #vintage #vintagevibes

David Lee Roth officially left Van Halen on April 1, 1985. And no...it was not an April Fool’s Day joke! Sammy Hagar took over as lead singer later on that same year. Did you have a preference between David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar fronting Van Halen? I will say I didn’t think I would like the change as much as I did!! I still preferred David Lee Roth though. Or were you maybe a Gary Cherone fan? #davidleeroth #singersongwriter #vocals #vanhalenhistory #sammyhagar #80smusic #garycherone #80sbands #80sfashion #hardrockmusic #classicrockmusic #poprockmusic #diamonddave

Take on me #80smusic

FIVE STAR • Managed by their father, this English pop group were made up of five siblings - Delroy, Denise, Doris, Lorraine and Stedman Pearson. They achieved their first UK top ten single with 'System Addict' and their 1986 album release of 'Silk and Steel' produced numerous hits, such as my favourite of 'Rain or Shine'. Their vocals, outfits and dance routines definitely had the 'Jackson' influence and their music contributed significantly to the soundtrack of my childhood 👩🏻‍🎤 #FiveStar #5Star #SystemAddict #CantWaitAnotherMinute #FindTheTime #RainOrShine #IfISayYes #StayOutOfMyLife #TheSlightestTouch #StrongAsSteel #80sMusic #TOTP #BritishPop #UKNostalgia #1980s

Well..this is pretty ironic hahaha 🎶 Phil Collins "Doesnt anybody stay together anymore"

Original promotional 12 inch flat for Girls Girls Girls. These were given to record stores to display in the window for new releases from the label. Not for sale. I got a few from Specs Music in May 1987. @motleycrue @nikkisixxpixx @thevinceneil @tommylee @mr.mickmars @brittanyfurlan @how2girl @serainamars @rainhannah @eddietrunk @sunsetmarquis @therealmickrock @elektrarecords @thewhiskyagogo @rainbowbarandgrill #motleycrue #nikkisixx #vinceneil #tommylee #mickmars #girlsgirlsgirls #promo #recordstore #80smusic #heavymetal #guitar #drums #bass #vocals

What wasn’t there to love about Cindi Lauper’s style in the 80’s? Her hair, funky clothes, and of course her music! A definite pop culture icon. #cyndilauper #80smusic #80ssong #80sfashion #80sstyle #popculture #timeaftertime #shebop #80skid #80steen #icon

BILLY OCEAN • Born in Trinidad & Tobago, Billy Ocean moved to the UK in 1960 and became a tailor on Saville Row before going into music. Although he debuted in the 1970's, his hits in the 1980's were tracks played everywhere throughout my childhood - R&B, pop and ballards. He gained an MBE in the 2020 New Year Honors for services to music 🎖🎵 #BillyOcean #CaribbeanQueen #Suddenly #WhenTheGoingGetsTough #TherellBeSadSongs #GetOuttaMyDreamsGetIntoMyCar #80sMusic #TOTP #UKNostalgia #1980s

PETER GABRIEL • The 1986 hit 'Sledgehmammer' is a track that had such an impact on me as a kid because of the pure creative genius of its music video! There is no denying Peter Gabriel's music talent but in the 80's, I could not get enough of this single on the TV 📺 #PeterGabriel #Sledgehammer #80sMusic #MTV #UKNostalgia #1980s

FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS • Formed in 1984, this British band found fame in the UK with the tracks 'Johnny Come Home' and the Elvis cover of 'Suspicious Minds'. The distinct vocals of Roland Gift made the F.Y.C stand out from the rest and their album 'Raw & Uncooked' topped the charts in 1989, giving them two US No.1 hits with 'She Drives Me Crazy' and 'Good Thing' 🎼 #FineYoungCannibals #RolandGift #JohhnyComeHome #SuspiciousMinds #EverFallenInLove #SheDrivesMeCrazy #GoodThing #80sMusic #TOTP #UKNostalgia #1980s

SPANDAU BALLET • They emerged in the 1980's to become one of the most successful bands of the New Romantic era and with 23 hit singles worldwide, it's not a surprise that tracks like 'True' and 'Gold' still prove popular nearly 40 years on 🎵 #SpandauBallet #TonyHadley #GaryKemp #MartinKemp #IDontNeedThisPressureOn #Instinction #Lifeline #True #Gold #OnlyWhenYouLeave #IllFlyForYou #ThroughTheBarricades #80sMusic #TOTP #1980s

KATE BUSH • An artist of such genius, that her talent knows no boundaries. Kate's music and performances continue to captivate and mesmerise audiences around the world and the 1980's had the privilege of hosting most of her well known hits. In my eyes, Kate Bush is in a league of her own and I continue to enjoy her work today ❤ #KateBush #Breathing #Babooshka #ArmyDreamers #SatInYourLap #RunningUpThatHill #Cloudbusting #HoundsOfLove #DontGiveUp #ThisWomansWork #80sMusic #UKNostalgia #1980s

BANANARAMA • This English all-female group proved worthy of being entered into the Guinness World Records for achieving the world's highest number of entries in the pop and dance charts 🏅 Their hit 'Cruel Summer' became my Bananarama fave when it featured in the 1984 movie 'Karate Kid' 🥋 #Bananarama #KerenWoodward #SaraDallin #SiobhanFahey #BritishPop #ItAintWhatYouDo #ReallySayingSomething #NaNaHeyHey #CruelSummer #RobertDeNirosWaiting #Venus #IHeardARumour #LoveInTheFirstDegree #80sMusic #TOTP #1980s

DURAN DURAN • Described as leading the 'Second British Invasion' in the US together with the introduction of Music Television (MTV). Lead singer, Simon Le Bon and this Birmingham band went on to become one of the most successful bands of the 1980s. My personal fave was the Bond Theme 'A View To A Kill' ... what was yours? 🎶 #DuranDuran #SimonLeBon #BritishPop #PlanetEarth #GirlsOnFilm #HungryLikeTheWolf #SaveAPrayer #Rio #TheReflex #WildBoys #AViewToAKill #Notorious #80sMusic #TOTP #1980s

WHAM! • One of, if not 'THE' most successful English music acts of the 1980s! With the addition of Pepsi & Shirlie, they had endless hits full of so much energy and light that depicted the decade from start to finish. Their music made for such a happy childhood! 😊 #Wham #GeorgeMichael #AndrewRidgeley #PepsiandShirlie #BritishPop #YoungGuns #ClubTropicana #WakeMeUpBeforeYouGoGo #Freedom #EverythingSheWants #ImYourMan #TheEdgeOfHeaven #FeelGoodMusic #80sMusic #TOTP #BritishPop #1980s
