Hi All,

First of all, no, I am not that old but I appreciate oldies.
To clarify the topic of discussion, we are talking about Pop music or popular music. Musical genres will always exist in some form but which ones are popular are another question. I am sure there were J-idols in the 80's but they weren't considered top ten chart record popular (let me know otherwise Razz).

The majority of Pop music from the 80's through the 90's have a very distinct melancholiness to them, not entirely as much as the 60's - 70's but the remnant is still there... It isn't until the 90's - 00's that the melancholy dies down and we get increased extremely happy music (I see J-idols as over the top happiness). I find that rather humorous... "It's just a phase, MOM."

What makes the 80's-90's distinct are the better MIDI's and the disco-ness. The use of beats that make you want to dance is very present.

What do you all think about the 80's through the 90's? Who were your favorite singers? My favorite was Anri. Interesting note: Many of the samples in vapor wave is taken during this time period.

For the next discussion I will be posting another time period try to guess what time period it is. Here is a hint: This song is a modern rendition of music that might sound from that time period. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YETN_tX0Uas




Here are some examples from this time period:
Anri -Shyness Boy- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iqwylKWS9c

Hitomi - Tuxedo Connection - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCNEyKjybHc

Tomoko - Midnight Pretenders - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QicgfPt_k6M

Cindy - Angel Touch - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ak_dM2EHKE

- The late eighties/nineties JPOP is just disco funk with japanese lyrics.

Why not trying your life in EASY MODE first?

Yeah, I would definitely agree Razz Usually there is a genre transition overlap between generations.
