For those who are avid readers of this blog, you know I am constantly listening to music. Despite the music I own, I enjoy internet radio. My favorite being AOL Radio. I love many genres' of music, but the fact that Freestyle (80 Dance) music has not been forgotten just warms my heart. Music suggestion time!!!
21. Shannon: One of the most prolific artists in this genre. I am sure you have heard the song "Let the Music Play". I don't condone this site, but information is needed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shannon_(singer)
22. Stevie B: Love the tone of this man's voice. Who doesn't dance to the song "Spring Love"? http://www.myspace.com/steviebmusic
23. Expose: Along with the others, this group shares a unique musicianship as well as girl power! Please check out their website, and social networking sites for updates. http://www.exposeonline.net/
24. Lisa Lisa & The Cult Jam: This group maybe the most known from this era. Their songs "I Wonder If I Take You Home" and "Lost in Emotion" are sure to make you dance or at the very least tap your toe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisa_Lisa_and_Cult_Jam
25. Neneh Cherry: Another strong woman in the game with great voice flow. Check out the song "Buffalo Stance"! http://www.nenehcherry.de/
As I wrote this blog with these suggestions, I noticed a really cool thing about this era and genre of music. Mostly ran by strong, talented, and beautiful women!! The genre has been credited to start the dance music that is popular today. All I know is that I love it all! Enjoy! Oh, don't forget to check out 80s Dance on AOL Radio!
