    I was watching Red Oaks on Amazon Prime which takes place in the 80s. The soundtrack may be one of the greatest collection of 80s pop/rock ever in a TV show or movie. Can we get some more forgotten stuff listed among these lines? (see pics) Looking more specifically for the lighter rock stuff, not so much the electronic based music, such as the Bob McGilpin, Rodger Hodgson, Craig Marsden, Boz Scaggs, etc.

    I grew up in the 70s and 80s and I didn't know some of the songs on that list.:D

    Nice to see Sweet's 'Love Is Like Oxygen' though. Very underrated band who had a run of big hit singles here. I'm sure you've heard of 'Ballroom Blitz', but 'Fox On The Run', 'The Six Teens' and 'Blockbuster' are other tracks you might like by them.

    Nice to see Sheena there with 'Strut. :) 'Telefone'' (Long Distance Love Affair) is another good early 80s hit by her.
