When we talk about 80s music, we think of songs that stick on our ears forever. Commercial artists, synths, electric drums, and so on. But we cannot forget the alternative, melancholic and sometimes, dark side of the 80s music. Bands like Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees or Sisters of Mercy were huge in defining a sound and a lifestyle back in the 80s. Their legacy still inspires artists and genres today. Many followers of this 80s movement consider that today's music is not the same, or as good - and maybe they’re right.
I have here one mix-tape ideal for the season! They are 2 halfs 30′ each with songs of the 80s best goth and post punk bands. Feel free to download and record with these two sets and wipe the dust of your radio.
