The 80's have come and gone, and let's face it: most of us weren't even around then to enjoy it but luckily we have family and friends who have experienced the 80's so we can live vicariously through their stories. Plus we have loads of music to pour over as we learn the history behind each chord and lyric.
I'm happy to say that I'm an 80's baby (1988) and that I was born in the decade that synthpop (and crazy hair) became one of the most influential genres in the music industry, inspiring some of my favorite artists today to create electro-masterpieces that make my heart, and ears, so happy.
Here are the best of the best musical masterminds of the 80's.
Which one is your favorite?
