    The official "New Wave Sissy Boy 80s Hits You Were Afraid To Admit You Liked In High School" playlist

    I published my first playlist to the web almost 4 years ago on June 12, 2004. And this is the very same list which kicked off a playlisting obsession for me.

    When I was in grade school during the late 1970's classic rock bands like The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin ruled the hallways. Tough guys wore black concert t-shirts looking to pick a fight with anyone who had the slightest propensity toward disco -- another major pop genre of the time.

    Disco was eventually slayed by rock & roll and no one dared admit owning a Village People or Gloria Gaynor album, although almost everyone did.

    Then the 80's came and with them came "new wave", a genre that was neither outright ridiculed by the rock & roll set, nor embraced. But a new invention called cable television gave MTV an opportunity to bypass previous methods of getting music out to the masses and new wave took off.

    However, many of us who were raised on the classic rock or first wave punk of the 1970's had trouble admitting that we were attracted to the music of Culture Club, Kajagoogoo or Wham!

    But we were...

    This is the ultimate 80's new wave guilty pleasures playlist. All the sissy boy hits we secretly loved in high school, but were never man enough to admit until grunge killed pop metal.

    What, no Fixx? The Fixx were more new-wavy than some of the above, but maybe their exclusion shows that they aren't considered "sissy-boy"? That would be a good thing I DO like a lot of the songs on that list...
    Maybe on course to the best yet!

    Sounds like my collection

    I have every song on that list in my collection (most on LP or cassette) and I have all the disco albums too! Gloria Gaynor is a local and often shops in my inlaws furniture store. I got to see her and the Village People amongst many others from the 70's a few summers ago. They were all still very good too! The laugh of the century was when K.C. and the Sunshine Band was performing, K.C. or whatever his name is fell flat on his face while trying to produce a few Hip Hop moves. Apparently he falls a lot as I have heard a few radio reports over the years. I guess he forgot how to "Shake Shake Shake His Booty" !
    I happened to know many guys with all the same tastes in music and none of which are sissy-like!

    I wonder if Rockerhic speaks for most Fixx fans when she says she has all those songs in her collection.

    I suspect I'm in the minority, having only one of those songs. I was still kinda stuck on the 70's in the 80's. (Though I loved watching MTV.)
