I’m a child of the 80’s (Generation X’er as you will). While our time is known for increasing divorce rates, wild fashions, hair bands, arcade games, John Hughes and over-the-top action movies, and overall “a time of social flux and transformation”.
For many of us, like it or not, we symbolize ourselves as the MTV Generation! Music videos were a new and lucrative art form. For our generation, it allowed us to identify with music, artists, and the industry in new ways.
While I have pretty eclectic tastes, I have to say that 80’s music speaks to me the most. Whether the tune happens to be a catchy Pop hit, country twang, heavy metal, instrumental, you name it…in many ways it brings back many memories for me. If you happen to be a fellow Gen X’er, feel free to check out this YouTube playlist I assembled. Over 20+ hours of content.
