Subject: First 80's Album you bought

Written By: gunsnroses on 07/26/20 at 1:51 pm

The first album I ever bought was when I was five, it was The Go Go's Beauty and The Beat.  I loved "We Got The Beat" and "Our Lips Are Sealed." They were great. Such upbeat empowering music. It annihilates the pop of today.

It was a Howard Jones cassette - maybe 1983. Got it for "New Song".
Second album was Culture Club - maybe 1984.
Third was The Jets debut in 1985.

The first 80s album I bought was The Changeling by Toyah. This came out in 1982.

I own Crocodiles by Echo and the Bunnymen, which came out in 1980,  but I didn’t buy it until probably out 1984.
