For those of you not tired of the Halloween theme, and still wanting to keep in a vampire state of mind, we bring you the top ten 80s goth songs……ever.
Why the 80s you may ask?
1.it was the birth of Goth
2.we have an expert in our midst.
Al in the Live Music Management accounts department was a bit of a goth in her youth and although she never sported the pale palour and none more Black look beloved of cider drinking Goths (still to be found skulking around public monuments in every small town in the UK) she retains a fondness for some of the more commercial offerings of the genre.
Goth has moved a million miles and splintered into a thousand sub genres since the 80s period when Leeds was the Goth capitol of the Universe and Robert Smith was an unlikly and reluctant Goth icon but many of the songs below will still be played at a Goth night and when one of our DJs played at a Goth wedding recently he was asked to play many of the tracks listed below (along with some tracks by acts he had never heard of but had already arranged with the bride and groom to have available on the night.)
Even for none Goths this list contains a couple of absolute classics which haven’t dated one bit.
1.Bauhaus-Bela Lugosis Dead
2.The Cure-A Forest
3.Souixsie and The Banshees-Christine
4.The Cult-She Sells Sanctuary
5.Sisters Of Mercy-This Corrosion
6.The Mission-Tower Of Strength
7.All About Eve-Flowers In Her Hair
8.Fields Of Nephilim-Preacher Man
9.The Damned-Shadow Of Love
10. Alien Sex Fiend-Dead And Buried
