80’s Music: US or UK?

Which Side of the Atlantic?

On a taxi ride to the Exeter Airport from the train station in 2007, the driver talked about great 80’s songs. I joined in, thinking that he was speaking of the New Romantic movement. Imagine my surprise when I finally cottoned on to the fact he was talking about American groups.

Here is a sampling from both sides, now:

Duran Duran: Is There Something I Should Know?



Peter Gabriel: Don’t Give Up (ft. Kate Bush)



Mike & The Mechanics: The Living Years



Roxy Music: More Than This



Spandau Ballet: True



Phil Collins: In The Air Tonight



Foreigner: I Want To Know What Love Is



Journey: Faithfully



Toto: Africa



Fleetwood Mac: Little Lies



Cyndi Lauper: Time After Time



Richard Marx: Right Here Waiting




Twelve videos, six from each side. Which are your favourites? I like them all.
