In all honesty, I just felt like doodling a cat with a monocle.

Resurgence of 80s Music?

The last few years have brought Electronic Dance Music (EDM) basslines into most modern music. Everything plays at around 128 BPM with synthetic kick drums on every beat.  EDM has now become the foundation for the new “Top 40” hits. 

Clarity by Zedd

Titanium by David Guetta

Burn by Ellie Goudling

Safe and Sound by Capital Cities (got dem trumpets, yo!)

Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO

Beauty and a Beat by Justin Bieber

Timber by Pitbull ft. Ke$ha

Throw in some country twang + Top 40 + EDM effects:

Wake Me Up by Avicii

Don’t get me wrong; I love the music listed above.  Catchy and a nice groove, but give me some live horns and a groovy bass guitar!!!!  I enjoy most Top 40 music but really, the 70s and 80s hit hard with its own flair, flavor, and funk.  Is 2013/2014 the cusp of the resurgence of the 80s?

Treasure by Bruno Mars (70’s esque??)

Get Lucky by Daft Punk

Do What U Want by Lady Gaga—-I really love this song.

Midnight City by M83 (80s…maybe?)

Shot at the Night by The Killers

Take Back the Night by Justin Timberlake (Michael Jackson-esque?)

Locked Out of Heaven by Bruno Mars (aww yes, the syncopation)

If it says anything about my point of view, I grew up with this vinyl record playing on an ancient turntable: What’s Love Got To Do With It by Tina Turner.  5 year old me prancing around the house in front of the stereo system.

Not saying that one era was better than the other since music changes with society, technology, and the media, but it’s nice to hear a live drum kit, horns, groovy bassline, and that classic 70s and 80s feel.

Whatchu guys think?
