Forget about trying to decipher what makes 80's sound like 80's. Just refuse to be influenced by anything later than about '85, and your stuff will sound like the 80's.

If I had to go back to the 80's, anything on the uk film 'The Business' has to be it.

Good film, recommend it!

Great soundtrack but didn't think the film was much cop. The firm remake is similar, good ST but film misses the mark. Gotta love those tracksuits though!

Damn', I'm sick as a dog.
Too much bad 80s sounds probably.
Thanks for answers anyone.

Pop music used to be interesting back then... would it work without all the "cheeze" and gated reverb? Maybe not...

It is also interesting that since they didn't have the autotune yet they had to drown the not so pitch perfect singers in chorus and other harmonizer effects, hehe - and call it "style".
They have actually been tuning vocals since the 70s. George Michael's vocals were supposedly massively tuned in the 80s.

hmmmmm, Bernard Sumner has among the most musical vocal lines of the decade :
Dream Attack, Bizarre Love Triangle, Age Of Consent... I agree he doesn't sing well at all, but melodies are beautiful.
