Five Songs That Brought the 80’s Back To 2013

muse-panic-stationAs 2013 comes to an end it’s time for us to look back and reflect about what this year was all about. We remember the Harlem Shake, twerking, and the blessing that was a full length album from Lorde. Possibly one of the best things to have happened to us in 2013 though is the uprising of 80’s style music. You can’t deny the catchy tunes with synths and heartthrob lyrics are back. Let us take a look at some of the greatest this year.

Muse-Panic Station

If we didn’t tell you this song was released in 2013 you probably would’ve thought it was from the 80’s. Just look at this video! Everything from the attire to the dancing screams 80’s! Just maybe with a little better quality.

Louise Burns-Emeralds Shatter

It starts with the synth, then comes the beat, a guitar riff and you’re transported into an 80’s teen movie. “Tell me now, what am I doing here at all?


Phoenix may be trying to be cool but they really don’t need to. If you can pull off an 80’s sounding song you’re cool enough as it is!

Tegan and Sara-Closer

Tegan and Sara couldn’t be closer to the heart of the 80’s than this song. We respect that, so we wont treat you like you’re oh so typical.

Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams-Get Lucky

Probably one of the most well-known of the 80’s comeback songs, this tune reached the top ten charts in over 32 countries and has also been nominated for a grammy. Why not? Get Lucky is also one of the catchiest.
