Subject: Clubbing in the 80's - and favorite club tunes

Written By: AmericanGirl on 08/30/08 at 10:27 pm

From my perspective, the 80's was a decade when clubbing was really popular.  Though I may be biased, the 80's seemed casual in regards to clubbing, in contrast to, for instance, the 70's - which made it more mainstream.

On Fridays, I'd to hurry to my local dance club for happy hour, eat a little bite at the buffet, consume a few cocktails and/or beers, then dance the evening away.  The clubs were usually packed with adults of many different ages.  It was just fun (despite all the trouble I got myself into).  Anybody here experience the glory of dance clubs in the 80's?  8)

There was some fantastic clubbing music in the 80's.  Many top hits were club friendly, like Shiela E.  There was also a lot of edgy dance music like New Order or (saw a thread on them) Pet Shop Boys.  Of course mainstays like Prince and Madonna were well represented in the clubs.

A sample of clubbing tunes:

Addicted To Love - Robert Palmer
Situation - Yaz
I Wanna Be A Cowboy - Boys Don't Cry
Do You Love Me - Contours (yes, the oldie)
What I Like About You - Romantics
What Have You Done For Me Lately - Janet Jackson
Dress You Up - Madonna
Superfreak - Rick James

   Did you do the Electric Slide..?

   I wasn't clubbing 'till the late eighties.  Mostly the enlisted clubs on the various bases I visited which were, suprisingly, pretty impressive.  They rivaled anything out in town...

   A couple of club staples I remember are "Don't Make Me Over" by Sybil (maybe that was 1990?) and "Paid in Full" by Eric B. and Rakim, and "Keep on Movin'" by Soul II Soul and "Head to Toe" by Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam and some Paula Abdul stuff like "(It's Just) The Way That You Love Me"...

  BTW, these are just some club tunes I remember.  I didn't necessarily like them... 8)

I stopped clubbing around 1985. My 'glory' days covered both the disco of the 70's and the early to mid 80's (I 'clubbed' from 1977 to 1985). I guess because I went out a lot that the transition from 70's to 80's was smooth...  You mentioned two songs that are in my all-time favourites list and bring back some great memories of the early ..

What I Like About You - Romantics  (just makes it in to the 80')
Bad Case of Loving You - Robert Palmer (a 1979 hit that was played well into 1980)

I wasn't quite old enough to go clubbing either in the 80s but one of my favorite 'club' style songs from that era is
"Catch Me I'm Falling" by Pretty Poison.  8)

I started going to teen clubs at 16 (late 1988).  Got my first club gig in 1990.  Here's a brief list of some of the more mainstream tracks that were being played out at the time:

"It Takes Two" - Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock
"My Prerogative" - Bobby Brown
"Wild Thing" - Tone-Loc
"Dope Man" - N.W.A.
"All She Wants Is" - Duran Duran
"Walking Away" - Information Society
"Personal Jesus" - Depeche Mode
"Pump Up The Jam" - Technotronic

Some of my favourite club tunes I heard while out in 1988-89:

"Houseman (Germany Calling)" - Voyou
"Okay!" - O.K.
"I'll House You" - Jungle Brothers
"This Is Acid (A New Dance Craze)" - Maurice
"Theme From S-Express" - S-Express
"Headhunter" - Front 242
"Join In The Chant", "Murderous" - Nitzer Ebb
"Sin" (Long) - Nine Inch Nails
"New York" - MCL (Micro Chip League)
"I Beg Your Pardon" - Kon Kan
"Fine Time" - New Order
"Stop!" - Erasure

I loved the fact you had clubs specifically for rock. I used to go to 4 or 5 different rock clubs or rock nights at local nightclubs.
Mayfair  - The Quireboys
and
Love Bomb Baby  - Tigertailz always got us up and grooving.  ;D

me and a couple work buddies did some clubbing in the mid to late 80's in San Francisco at a couple of hot spots. http://bestsmileys.com/moody/1.gif  there was this friend & co-worker who was cute and sexy & I remember her talking us into taking her dancing and drinking after work to this club in SF, and then later she'd tell us she had a ride home and then she ditched us  >:(    we were used  ;D    anyways, here's a couple songs I recall:

There are songs I hear today that remind me of clubbing in the eighties.  Most Erasure songs, Bronski Beat, that sort of thing.  Also Simple Minds - Don't You Forget About Me and Alive and Kicking.  One in particular always reminds me of me and my mate, Michelle, 'bopping' away - Respectable by Mel and Kim.

Dec 7th 1988 I turned 21. My friends and I had a little pre celebration at one of their homes. Then we went to a club in Monterey. I was wasted before we even got in the door. 

I was standing by the DJ's booth and Cover Girls "Because of You" came on.

When it got to the part where the singer was "Jumping up and down (Because of you babe)" I decided to jump up and down too. The DJ told me not to do that because the record skipped... we all know how much I love authority  ::) so of course that part came on and I jumped up and down again. Yeah I got kicked out of the club 15 minutes after getting let in  ;D

My friends were kind enough to leave the club with me.  We spent the rest of the night down by the docks picking up sailors  :-X


edited to add....NAVY sailors...not fishermen (not that theirs anything wrong with them)

I didn't start to go clubbing until 1995, but I like -

I Can't Wait - Nu Shooz (1985)
Let The Music Play - Shannon
Venus - Bananarama (1986)
Buffalo Stance - Neneh Cherry (1989) (This actually played at some of the clubs I went to in the mid - late 90's once in a blue moon. I never heard it again after 1998 though)
Funkytown - Lipps Inc. (1980)
Love Shack - The B-52's (1989) (Heard this at some of my clubs too)

'Hearsay'.
I had a like-dislike going on with that album.
He was sounding a little too party like and moving too far away from what he did previously.
Some good solid dance songs on it though, but I really missed the Luther Vandross style of his first album.

I weren't clubbing in the 80s, since I was only born in 1986, but after searching through various 80s radio stations I've liked the following dance songs:


Mark Imperial - J'Adore Danser and Love I Lost
Chip E. - If You only Knew, Time to Jack
Pierre's Pfantasy Club - Never Give Up, Got the Bug, Mystery Girl
White Knight - Keep it Movin'
Visual - Somehow Someway and The Music Got Me
Master C & J - When You Hold Me
JM Silk - All In Vain, Shadows of Your Love
Mike Dunn - Life Goes On
Rude Boy Farley Keith - Give Yourself to Me
Fingers Inc - A Path
House Gang - Cool J Traxx
Steve Hurley - Work It Out
Ralphie Rosario - You Used to Hold Me
John Rocca - Move


Lisa G - Call My Name
Valerie Dore - The Night (the woman sings like the song is about God or angels, but the lyrics are only about sex, too bad)


Freeez - I.O.U
Stevie B - Party Your Body and Dreamin' of Love


Evelyn Thomas - High Energy
Brothers Johnson - Stomp
SOS Band - Take Your Time
