@Matty2310:
Happy Late Birthday! 20 huh? I just turned 31 a couple of months ago. but I can still pass for 26, 27, thanks to my unlimited supply of E-Tanks. Anyways, Gotta love this beat even though parts of the video are pretty hysterical. The 2nd is from one of the best Friday the 13th sequels, ahem Part 6: Jason Lives.

@skywake By the way, where in Australia are you from? I'm from Melbourne.

Since you're from Melbourne, this is the only way I can answer that question this week

Haha, sorry mate but the cup's staying Victorian (jokes, I don't really care since I don't follow footy, although sometimes I tune in for the Grand Final). From the video I'm guessing you're going for West Coast? (Non-Australians must be so confused lol).

Just read this... I'd kinda forgotten about the result

That said, it's kinda hard to be too upset about it. We didn't make the 8 last year and early in the year people were writing us off entirely. Then we not only finish 2nd on the ladder but we make the Grand Final. Not a bad result all things considered especially given that we lost to the Hawks in the GF after beating them just few weeks earlier. Sucks to fall at the very last hurdle but they still did pretty damn well. I suspect that Dockers fans were a hell of a lot more disappointed with the result than we were. The Dockers went into the finals as favourites, didn't even make the Grand Final.

Back on topic, I'm not really diving into that much 80s music ATM. The closet I've got recently is modern stuff that imitates that sort of style. Recently Ringo Deathstarr's new material which maybe leans a bit into the 90s.... but it's close enough

Some good Aussie musics: King Gizzard, Pond, The Avalanches
"Don't stir the pot" is a nice way of saying "they're too dumb to reason with"

@skywake Haha don't worry, 2nd's pretty good.

@WaveBoy, haha thanks! I love the bit from 2:52 when they look at the camera lol

Anyways, regarding 80s music, here's what's probably my favourite 80s song at the moment:
Dancing Girls - Nik Kershaw (1984)

Love the sinister effect the synths give off here, as well as the bizarre video with dancing old ladies. Saw him perform this actually in September. Very short guy.

Destination Unknown - Pseudo Echo!
They were at their peak in 84' but unfortunately gradually went downhill after they deviated away from their glorified Glam-Synth look & sound. By the end of the 80's Pseudo Echo were finished!

@WaveBoy Yeah they were very big here in Australia at the time, lucky us! (Not that I remember them being big at the time, since I wasn't born yet, but you know what I mean). Also, how do you embed? Since the old method doesn't work anymore..
Anyway, regarding music, here's Baby Come And Get It by the Ponter Sisters (1985). Love the way the synths roll in this one.
