It's no secret I am a child of '70s and '80s music. So if you've read me for a while, I use a mucho '80s music and references.
But everything old is new again, right? Go-Gos, Psychedelic Furs and the likes all have new music out. But there are newer bands that are utilizing the genre for their own launch.
I don't know from the Midnight, but they have been playing on 710's Apple Music whist I prep dinner. But their song, "Deep Blue" reeks (in a good way) of mid-80's fare.
I mean, the saxophone alone has 1980s written all over it. Quarterflash. Men at Work. Huey Lewis. It's all there.
Yet it doesn't suck - not that I'm implying the above acts did either. "Deep Blue" is kind of nice escapism to a better time when Ronald Reagan was president.
......yes. marinate on that last sentence just a little bit. This is what the current administration has done to me.
