Ok here is a time I need anyone and everyone's help.

Kelly and I primarily want 80's music for our wedding, especially 80's alternative love song type stuff. We had a list of stuff, but we are also trying to compile more and add to it. So anyone has anything they can suggest or remind me to check let us know.

Haha, this is my list. Some of it's questionable, I know. So what? It's the 80s, everything is a love song...or a sicko stalker song. Some aren't even love songs, but they sure sound like 'em. Haha.

The Cure: Just Like Heaven, Friday I'm in Love, Close to Me, The Lovecats
OMD: Tesla Girls, So in Love, If You Leave, Electricity
Cocteau Twins: Know Who You Are At Every Age
New Order: Bizarre Love Triangle, Age of Consent, Love Vigilantes
Mighty Mighty Bosstones: Where'd You Go?, The Impression That I Get
The Muffs: The Kids in America
Radiohead: Fake Plastic Trees
The Police: Every Breath You Take, Roxanne, Message in a Bottle, Don't Stand So Close to Me, Every Little Thing She Does is Magic
George Michael: Faith
U2: With or Without You
The Beach Boys: Kokomo
Phil Collins: Groovy Kind of Love
Tommy Tutone (haha): 867-5309/Jenny
Soft Cell: Tainted Love
Culture Club: Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?
INXS: Beautiful Girl, Not Enough Time
Tears for Fears: Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Violent Femmes: Blister in the Sun, Kiss Off, Please Do Not Go

Okay, I'll think of more later.

"alternative"? What was alternative during the 80's?

Popular I can do. Alternative, as in songs nobody's ever heard of? Uh... well..

I suppose we could find you some Doctor Demento stuff. :-D

You know.. Anything that even my DAD listened to, I wouldn't exactly call "alternative". :-D

But yeah, Jen's pretty much covered all the biggies. I do have a CD of covers, called "Punk does 80s" I should loan you.

Step 3: Enjoy!

I'd hit up a used CD store for Time/Life 80s Love Song compilations and things like that.

http://musicspace.com/category.asp?catalog_name=musicspace&category_name=80s

I always check the Music Space compilations when I am trying to remember songs. They're the people who are always selling those compilations on TV.

I don't know about 80's alternative though. Besides New Wave and stuff that was on 120 Minutes, was there really a lot of alternative in the 80s?

Yeah the alt stuff was basically New Wave, but there was some other stuff that just didn't fit the pop genre, but now is played when they do 80s flashbacks.

Does the Ramones' "Beat on the Brat" count as a love song? :-D
