Good day inmates!

I hope everyone is well and keeping safe out there. The world is still a mental place, with new twists and turns daily! It’s like a piece of art that the creator wants to keep changing and simply cannot settle on anything. So I suppose I’m just saying take care and expect the unexpected everyone! The pandemic is still going strong and the worlds other dangers remain in the flanks. There has been a rather high profile murder of a young woman by a police officer here in the UK that has been raising some issues about womens safety on the streets at night. It really has made me think about how different things are for ladies walking alone. It’s scary and it’s sad that not everyone can feel safe out in public.

So, it’s time for another burst of the Harlequins writing music today! As I was saying last week, these posts are going to have a theme from now on. I posted a clue for todays theme on social media a few hours ago. Did anybody get it?

That’s right! Today’s musical theme is the 80s! And what a time for music it was! Slightly before my time, but I like to think my tastes were influenced by it nonetheless. Entire new subcultures and styles were sprouting up and becoming more mainstream. Some artists that we consider greats nowadays were birthed in the crucible of the 80s music scene. David Bowie, The Cure and Prince for a few examples! I’m not necessarily saying that things weren’t great and varied before the 80s, but I feel it’s a decade of variety. So, enough from this musical amateur, do you want to hear the maestros play? Let’s hear five songs and artists that I feel represent the theme of the 80s!

Join me as we delve into the musical minds of the 80s the world over!

The Human League – Love Action (I Believe In Love)

So there we have it for today!

So, I hope that you enjoy all of these my friends. I could have picked so many other artists instead of these. It was so hard to settle on any of these. There were just too many! So heres hoping I didn’t go for some disappointing choices and these bring you all some nostalgic joy!

So, I best throw out my social media nonsense eh? The asylum has a prescence on Facebook, an account on Instagram and also a Twitter page. It would be so cool of you all to come and like or follow me over there. I post some fun stuff, clues for my poems and now writing music posts. Also, as always, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-fi page! Cheers my friends!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!
