Thanks.

Yeah, I would recommend more folks to revisit Slowdive, The Chameleons, Sigur Ros, and, of course, the Pet Shop Boys...

No thanks, PSB are exactly the kind of 80's pop I can't stand any more.  :P

I will post a few new lists, each one with Slowdive in, maybe that will help!  :lol:

Obviously, PSB don't fit with my other recommendations. I was getting greedy.

Thank you friend!! I got into most of those bands by video games or my mom or brothers. Minus Talk Talk which my girlfriend got me into them a few weeks ago n a couple on that list I explored on my own (ex Eminem n Megadeth).

To me it's always great when very young people are introduced to "old" bands  by their families/friends, it's something that I try to do with my little sister as well, but it's clear that we don't have the same taste in music  :lol:

No, she always says "that music is strange, you are the only one who listens to it!"  :D But i think it's quite common for a girl her age, even if when I was 16 I was already into all these bands

Yup, as I mentioned before, it is difficult to make a list... but The Cure and The Damned are bands I've listened to since 1985 and they are always at the top of the list (and always will be, I guess)...
