    Used to look down on the 80’s with its synth drenched plastic pop music but now I find great enjoyment in bangers like this gem.

    songs mostly only Canadians will know, including myself @WhiteWabbit - nice picks! I used to see this one on MuchMusic all the time in the early/mid 80s

    Many don’t realize Rick Moranis was also a talented musician and songwriter.

    Yea, that’s a classic too. I like the music video when they’re in the Toronto subway station.

    I can't look back to the 80's. My head was off into electronic, classical and jazz by then. I'll give you Les Chants Magnétiques though.

    Nope don’t know those. I only lived through 2 months of the 80s so they must be too much of deep cuts for me.

    That's allowed. When I was thirty (1992) I used to look down on all that non-plastic, rock n' roll garbage from the 50s.
