Nonstop 80s Cult hits by Alphaville, Boy George, The Cure, Cyndi Lauper, Depeche Mode, Phil Collins, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson Nena, Modern Talking or Spandau Ballet. "Loud, shrill and crazy funky" - that's the lifestyle of the 80s. Neon-colored leggings were female, men could easily show up in mesh shirts and whoever held their own was wearing an expressive hairstyle from popper to punk! The Neue Deutsche Welle was born and brought danceable fun in the German charts. Gyms and aerobics were in, televised Alf, Dallas and Dirty Dancing. The just invented music video then showed perfect body to perfect synth music. Bands joined their electronic music, which got a distinctive sound through the use of synthesizers, to the decaying disco era. From then on, the discotheques danced to songs by Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys and Eurythmics. Others devoted their time to metal. Metallica and Iron Maiden became icons of the time, whose band shirts are still considered fashionable accessories.
