Live Ledge #199: 1985

At this point in my life 30 years ago, the world seemed to be ready for the taking. I had just graduated college, and was living the late night dream of having no obligations other than fun. The music of that time reflected this outlook, and tonight we look back at the soundtrack of the era. Some of it is a bit poppier than one usually hears on Live Ledge, but overall the influence of these sounds still resonate today.
