Let's face it a lot of 80's music had that feel good factor and that's what we all love. Even in 2011 when Wham comes on most of the room is up on the floor doing their thing. That kind of nostalgia has a place in our hearts and so it should. While sometimes not some of the most challenging music ever written the catchy melodies and cheesy lyrics just work. They should not but they do.
There are many professional bands have caught on to the new found interest in eighties music and polished up a set of the biggest hits. Doing the rounds in pubs and clubs throughout the UK they earn a good living. A lot of corporate parties book 80's bands for their events too.

Commercial local radio still includes the hits of the 80's in their playlists as they know what draws in audiences. Record labels are releasing 80's albums for the second time or compilation 80's albums.
You probably know of someone who has thrown a party with an 80's theme. The eighties are everywhere! As well as the music at eighties theme parties most of the fun is dressing up in mullet wigs and other 80's gear.
