Think I prefer Southern Freez to I.O.U. for my playlist. Really like it's laid back feel.

Still working on this, I've more or less decided on what tracks to included and I've downloaded a couple of them, but I haven't decided on the running order.

Goes to show you can't please everyone all the time.

Still to be downloaded:

Ace Of Spades by Motorhead
Duel by Propaganda
Southern Freez by Freez
Moonlight Shadow by Mike Oldfield

I'm still around six tracks short of a cd's worth, guess I'll have to try mining the General Recommendations thread for likely candidates. That'll keep me off the streets for a while.

Thanks loveaction, I'll check them out, not sure about KHLA though I don't think they're an 80's band?

I'm having to rethink some of my selected songs as they're not available as downloads i.e. Southern Freez by Freez and Jackie by Bluezone (Lisa Stansfield), blow.

Latest iteration, after finding a download for Southern Freeez, and I'm having second thought about Ace Of Spades as it's not an obvious fit, stylistically with the other tracks:

1. Broken Land by The Adventures
2. Love Is A Wonderful Colour by The Icicle Works
3. Calling All The Heroes by It Bites
4. Somewhere In My Heart by Aztec Camera
5. Steppin' Out by Joe Jackson
6. Waiting For A Girl Like You by Foreigner
7. Ace Of Spades by Motothead
8. Living In A Box by Living In A Box
9. The Look by Roxette
10. The First Picture Of You by The Lotus Eaters
11. I Hear You Now by Jon & Vangelis
12. Duel by Propaganda
13. MoonLight Shadow by Mike Oldfield
14. Southern Freez by Freeze

Well I have twenty now:

1. Broken Land by The Adventures
2. Don't Leave Me This Way by the Communards
3. Love Is A Wonderful Colour by The Icicle Works
4. Calling All The Heroes by It Bites
5. Southern Freeez by Freez
6. Somewhere In My Heart by Aztec Camera
7. The Riddle by Nik Kershaw
8. Steppin' Out by Joe Jackson
9. One Thing Leads To Another by The Fixx
10. Waiting For A Girl Like You by Foreigner
11. Underpass by John Foxx
12. Ace Of Spades by Motorhead
13. Love Plus One by Haircut 100
14. Living In A Box by Living In A Box
15. The Look by Roxette
16. I Hear You Now by Jon & Vangelis
17. MoonLight Shadow by Mike Oldfield
18. Duel by Propaganda
19. Life In A Northern Town by The Dream Academy
20. The First Picture Of You by The Lotus Eaters

I had wanted to use the extend version of The First Picture Of You but it just won't fit on a standard 80 minute cd, so I may do another version with some extended versions on to my Ipod.

Still playing around with the running order, it's not quite to my satisfaction yet.

Blast, I forgot to include something by Lisa Stansfield after I couldn't find a download for Jackie. I've burned a couple of CD/RW so far with different running orders, is everyone else bored with this thread? Thought that I might provoke a few here to tell us about their favourite alternative 80's playlists. I also seem to have forgotten Orange Juice/Edwyn Collins.

Thinking I might do a second volume of alternative 80's tracks, quite like:

Fiction Factory - Feels Like Heaven https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GUMBIxkdvU

China Crisis - Wishful Thinking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldQpRMegYc0

Ice House - Hey Little Girl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKDYyFf1s0I

Any more suggestions for this?

Scritti Politti - Absolute https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teHqHmnXnhE

Stephen Tin Tin Duffy - Kiss Me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwQlwdSphGo

This is kind of the same as what has been mentioned although it's better because they are all 12" versions https://www.amazon.co.uk/Twelve-Inch-Eighties-Digging-Scene/dp/B01K5RC956/ref=pd_ys_c_rfy_229816_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=XPTZ182J4AD73FWSK19J

I think there are few good ones featured in this very appealing collection. Out next week, I just might have to nab a copy! =D

Thanks for the heads up Sarah, the trouble is I have nearly half of these songs already on studio albums and there are also a few I wouldn't listen to i.e. Hall and Oates, they sounded so decade before. However I might include, in my 2nd volume of Alternative 80s, one or two from the track list having sampled them, e.g. E=mc2.

Can't believe it's four years since I started this thread, I'll have to list the tracks I've selected for my second 80s Alternative Playlist. I've already downloaded a few of the tracks.
