Saturday Videos

Well it's Saturday and we just got back from the laundromat so of course I'm looking back at some old 80s music that I used to (and still do) love so much. First up is Devo with their song Freedom Of Choice off of the album of the same name released in 1980. This is the Devo sound that I like the most, just enough guitar and enough synthesizer without either being overbearing.

Next up is The Go-Go's lead track Our Lips Are Sealed off of the Beauty And The Beat album released in 1981. It was the song that started everything off for them and peaked at number 20 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart.

Lastly we have a band from Downey, Ca called The Blasters featuring the Alvin brothers, Dave and Phil. The band was featured in the movies Streets of Fire and From Dusk Till Dawn. I'm Shakin' was off of their album The Blasters released in 1981. Dave left the band in 1986 but Phil has carried on the name in various incarnations ever since.

So there you have it, three very different bands from 1980-1981 however all are/were extremely good in the musical style they chose. All are highly recommended for you to check out and are more than a one trick pony.
