This '80's revival madness has

This '80's revival madness has got to stop. For crying out loud. This new Rhino SEVEN CD box set that just came out has transformed nostalgia for '80's pop into some kind of pre-emptively snide kitchy ridicule of the whole decade. It contains no Prince, Madonna or rap, but does include "Heartbeat" by Don Johnson. Now, I love "Pour Some Sugar On Me" as much as the next girl, but I don't want to listen to it on some cruddy compilation that is more concerned with making fun of bands like Def Leppard and a-ha than with appreciating the quality music that came out in that decade. Plus, the whole world is sick to death of nostalgia. [via King Pigeon]

The whole world is not sick of nostalgia, in fact far from it.

As long as things like modern day chart music continue to be crap on a grand scale, then nostalgia will live on. And what's wrong with that?

I think we've moved on from taking the p**s out of the 80's. I mean, come on, the last 5 years of dross has made everyone realise just how good the old days really were.

Understand your comments regarding the likes of Don Johnson..there are some things that should never be bought back! ;-0
