The 80s, when I was alive.

It was, it has to be said, a good time for music. The music scene was a lot less fragmented and, well, Balkanised than it is today. It was actually worth keeping an eye on the charts, as well as listening to John Peel, and whatever pirate stations were in the vicinity. 

Making mixes of 80s stuff is quite a lot of fun; BPMs are very rarely consistent, even when it's the Human League and they're using a Linn Drum Machine, so beatmatching is quite difficult, but the structure of most 80s songs (intro-verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus-chorus-fade), means you can segue stuff quite easily, so the first beat of Song 2 comes in on the silent last beat of Song 1. 

Anyway, I've made a few 80s mixes. They get better as they get faster, oddly enough, but we're going to start  with this one...
