VH1 Bands Reunited

http://www.vh1.com/shows/dyn/bands_reunited/series.jhtml

Okay, this is my new favorite show - VH1's "Bands Reunited." The deal is, they find all the members of these '80s bands, get them together and have them perform a show the next night. So far, I have seen the episodes about Berlin, Flock of Seagulls, Romeo Void and Klymaxx.

  The one about Berlin was quite dramatic. Their songs were "Metro," "No More Words" and "Take My Breath Away" - otherwise known as the song during the sex scene in "Top Gun." The lead singer, Terri Nunn, still looks great, although the rest of the band are quite worn. But they sounded GREAT. I would go see them.

  The guys from Flock of Seagulls have mostly lost their hair, so no one had the mousse wings.

  I totally forgot about Romeo Void, although when I heard the song "Never Say Never," it all came flooding back. The '80s. Big hair. Shoulder pads.

I like 80s nostalgia.  They say its bad to relive the past but it seems like it was a brighter time than the early twenty-first century. America was riding high on the decade of decadence.  There were bright neon colors and boppy feel good tunes. Even the gloom rock swung a little "The Cure"  "R.E.M"   I saw the Psychedelic Furs perform at my local club and they of course were sponsored by this VHI series. "Heartbreak Beat" and "Love My Way" were great sonic flashbacks
