New Wave Ken!

With all this posting about new music, it's time to take a step back and see what got us here. Although most of this music is just before my time, it doesn't mean I can't be nostalgic for it. The simplicity of New Wave was part of its mass appeal - can you think of a more accessible genre? How many clubs in your town have 80's dance parties every week? Yeah, that's what I thought.

To go along with the lovely picture of New Wave Ken, how about a playlist chock-full of New Wave dance-able goodness? Come on, I just know you know all the words to 'Rio.' Click Ken to play.

P.S. Playlist in the comments - it's a big list!

    How about New Wave Ken? Does he remind you of your younger days?

    Hi Drake,

    No please - I never had clothes like that. It was only the music that reminded me of my younger days.
