Music Meme: 1980

Continuing my list of favorite albums from every year I've been alive.

1980

Talking Heads: Remain in Light



My love affair with disco was very short-lived.

In 7th grade I had a couple of friends who somehow latched onto New Wave and introduced me to it. It changed the way I thought about music and it was this album that hooked me on the movement. It was so poppy and listenable, but so different from everything I was hearing on the radio. And of course, there was that video that made David Byrne the strangest, coolest guy in the world as far as I was concerned.



It was also about this time that I started listening to Devo and Blondie and that Adam and the Ants popped on my radar.
