C is for Crowded House

| |

C was a challenging letter today. The only groups that came to mind when I thought of C were the Clash and the Cure. Both fantastic groups, but not quite what I think of when I think '80s music. A light of inspiration dawned when I started thinking about one hit wonders from that era. Sadly, the '80s had a boat load of bands that made it to the top with one hit and then seemed to disappear from the music world. I don't remember much of Toni Basil after she did "Mickey" or Bow Wow Wow after "I want candy" nor do I know what happened to Alannah Myles after she did "Black Velvet." All fantastic '80s one hit wonders. But none fit the letter C.

Crowded House does though.
Don't Dream It's Over

I miss the 80s almost as much as I miss the 90s.

I guess the bands you mentioned didn't have nought commitment to carry on.

Love the theme of 80s music for the month. Good luck with the other letters!

The 80s did have a lot of one hit wonders. I liked The Clash. Not as much as some others, but they had some good songs.

"Don't Dream It's Over" is one of the best songs ever. Crowded House has turned out a lot of fine music since that release.
