The Sounds of the 80s

a poem by tobias kerins, UK

The sounds of the eighties, who can forget
Seven inch, twelve inch or simple cassette
Tune after tune, all buzzing and bristling
Tapping your fingers, quietly whistling

Kick off with Soft Cell, and Tainted Love
Then there was Madness, with Wings of a Dove
Girls on Film, by Duran Duran
The boys from Wham, sang I’m Your Man

Johnny Hates Jazz, did Heart of Gold
The J Geils Band, played Centrefold
Heaven is a Place on Earth, said Belinda Carlisle
Walking on the Moon, the Police did with style

The New Romantics, burst onto the scene
Spandau Ballet, then Heaven 17
Depeche Mode, I Just Can’t Get Enough
Boy George arrived, wearing all that stuff

There was Phil Oakley, of the Human League
His haircut for many, caused intrigue
Kajagoogoo, were, Too Shy to say
But Paul Young did, Come Back and Stay

The Pet Shop Boys, looked at West End Girls
From the eighties music, just one of the pearls
Level 42, ABC and Lisa Stansfield
Just a few of the acts, the eighties did yield

I hope you’ve enjoyed, a trip down memory lane
The music of the eighties, will always reign
Band Aid did Wembley, 1984
Freddie Mercury and Queen, what an encore

Real Life
The Maltese Falcon Vol V
The Note
