80′s Anthems

OK let me start by saying that I am in love with 80′s music of all varieties, so this is an era that will be re-visited MANY times over. If you’re confused as to why I’ve omitted a track, then fear not….I’ll probably get to it eventually. Today’s post is all about my ultimate anthems by female artists, and trust me when I say it was hard to whittle it down to these 5, but I had to be brutal!

FLASHDANCE….Fuck I love this song. It’s produced by Giorgio Moroder for starters, so you know it’s gonna be epic. Irene Cara has THE most amazing voice, and it’s one of the most uplifting songs around. Here’s the extended version for over 7mins of pure joy  *Confession* I’ve never actually seen the film ‘Flashdance’ (what sort of lesbian am I??)

Not only is this song an absolute belter, but the video is in the classic ‘mini feature film’ style that was so beloved in the 80′s. Impossible to sing along without clutching your fist in front of your face

You know a song is an anthem when people lose their shit at the very first note. I have adored this song since I was a kid, long before San Junipero gave it a much deserved resurgence. 

As if I’d do a post about 80′s anthems and not include a Whitney song….what sort of music blog do you take me for?

THE ULTIMATE! Not just one of the best 80′s anthems or Madonna songs, but one of THE best songs ever PERIOD (you can tell i’m serious from all the caps!) It doesn’t matter how cool or how much of a music snob you think you are….put this song on and EVERYBODY dances. I have proved this theory many times over.

This is way overdue, but thank you all for waiting!

There will be LOTS MORE of these coming as I play catch-up with the milestones…so stay tuned!

This ain’t comin’ from no prophet
Just an ordinary man
When I close my eyes I see
The way this world shall be
When we all walk hand in hand

When the last child cries for a crust of bread
When the last man dies for just words that he said
When there’s shelter over the poorest head
We shall be free

When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
When the skies and the oceans are clean again
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud
‘Cause we shall be free
When we’re free to love anyone we choose
When this world’s big enough for all different views
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
Then we shall be free
We shall be free

We shall be free
Have a little faith
Hold out
'Cause we shall be free

And when money talks for the very last time
And nobody walks a step behind
When there’s only one race and that’s mankind
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, have a little faith

We shall be free
