I am a huge 80s pop fan, so there are just too many to list. 'Papa Don't Preach' is one of my all time favourite songs, and is from 2 years before my birth.

If anyone says The Spice Girls, I will cry.

Pretty much every major hit of the 1980s, although most have been copied from compilation CDs/tapes/vinyl rather than actually downloaded.

I bought Ibiza - The Album earlier this year, which was primarily music from before my time, and:

Green Day - When I Come Around
Neil Diamond - Sweet Caroline
Green Day - Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)

...so not much at all. My family has a couple 80's compilations but I've never bothered to burn them.

Excellent question...I downloaded that Nile Rodgers and Chic best of that came out last year, so I guess that counts. Can't think of any others I've downloaded!

Does depend how specific you are about the question. I listen to a lot of music from before I was born but I'm so ancient that I'd acquired a lot of it before you even could buy downloads. And even now I don't download individual oldies that often, mostly I buy whole albums or compilations.

Two I do definitely remember though are 'Woodstock' by Matthews Southern Comfort and 'Stardust' by David Essex. I wonder if I'm the first person ever to have mentioned either of those songs on Buzzjack?

Very few laugh.gif I have some Kylie albums from before I was born, and probably a couple of others, but that's about it lol. Most music I enjoy has happened post-1997.

Three of those tracks are from 1991, so you're certainly not older than me!
(Pedantic note: I know the original version of 'Sit Down' was in the 80s, but you can't get that version any more).

Oh, that's good to know. biggrin.gif

I never knew that about 'Sit Down' ohmy.gif , one of my favorite songs of all time.

I know I've bought more but they weren't showing on my iTunes for some reason...

James had been around for a long time before Sit Down suddenly became a hit. Here are a couple of their very early songs.

A lot. I was born in '93 and on my iTunes there's a '60s playlist of 58 songs, a '70s one of 192 and an '80s one of 216 and that's not even all of it.

I lot of 60s music - Dylan, Hendrix, Janis Joplin. And then also the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell. Pretty much the standard classics, obviously the Beatles and the Stones.

I love Motown so have quite a lot of that too. And then also some of the 70s era disco music. Not much from the 80s though.

Seriously are there people born after 2000 here? ohmy.gif
I don't download oldies so probably nothing on my list.

Jackson 5-I Want You Back
Journey-Don't Stop Believing
Boston-More Than A Feeling
Drifters-Up On The Roof

That's just off the top of my head. Also, all the Kate Bush albums I own predate me.
