Songs of the 80s

Supposedly seven days, seven tracks. But I like the idea of ten days, ten years, ten tracks more. So to start with, here's one from 1980:

crop the link down to just the video code and put it in between [youtube ] [/youtube ] syntax

I wanted ten pence for the dryer
Yes, that was how we met
My laundry bag was broken
My clothes were soaking wet
I felt I needed hugging
You needed board and lodging

I can't complain
We went down the drain
Seems like I can't get away from you
Even in the launderette
Seems like I can't get away from you
Even in the launderette
Now my socks see your socks in the dryer
And your jeans run into my shirt

You always were untidy

You wanted some coffee round at my place
It all seemed just a laugh
But you hadn't left there two weeks later
Your hair's all over the bath
It's good to get you to go
I had to learn to say 'no'

I can't complain
We went down the drain
Seems like I can't get away from you
Even in the launderette
Seems like I can't get away from you
Even in the launderette
Now my socks see your socks in the dryer
And your jeans run into my shirt

I can't complain
We went down the drain

You always were untidy

Hahaha

Not a song in the traditional sense but there are (some) lyrics ... either way, it's from the 80's and it's great Grin

technically from '79, but the live recording was from 1980 I think.

that's 1981 Wink

and the video, supposedly a spoof of video nasties, just seems nasty... a naked woman strapped to a table threatened by two gay men with a chainsaw is the lingering impression, and there's nothing very subversive about that (even if it does get silly later on)

but then I am in quite a bad mood today Grumble

Damn, could have sworn that was released early 1982 but it was indeed 1981 Baffled

in today's world of 10 year olds with scat porn on their smartphones the video looks relatively harmless, but I could imagine for 1981 it was a wee bit different...

anyways, here's my 1982 substitute entry then, hopefully cheering u up a bit:
