Love Songs Of The 80s – Selera Melayu

1bWe time traveled back to the 80s and created a playlist with the 12 best love songs ever from that decade. Which has a little bit of everything for everyone on every radios, such as Alan Sorrenti, Tatsuro Yamashita, Debbie Gibson, Nikka Costa who was born in Japan, also Jose Mari Chan from Philippines. Some of these artists are not so popular but -FYI- they were very famous for Indonesian listeners. So hit play on the tracks below, enjoy a wicked nostalgic playlist. Hats off to them .. salute to the eighties!

Selusin tembang balada pilihan era 80an, mewakili setiap tahun. Bukan berdasarkan popularitas maupun rangking Billboard, atau One-Hit Wonder. Tapi selera pribadi dari pengalamanku di radio swasta seputaran Pontianak, Jakarta dan Bandung selama 80an. Kompilasi lagu2 yg juga pernah menghasilkan duit buatku utk pesanan kaset rekaman edisi C-60 serta durasi 90 yg paling laris. Apalagi di akhir 80an saat kaset bajakan punah berganti lisensi, terjadi kekosongan pasar. Maka nama Dan Byrd juga Art Company yg kurang berkibar secara Internasional, tapi jadi legenda untuk pecinta radio Indonesia. Lalu kenapa cuma bikin 12 lagu? Karena mayoritas penyanyi milik major label, bakal di klaim youtube akibat hak edar. Toh percuma bikin lalu aplod video jika untuk dicekal. Inipun sudah di edit dan “dirusak” agar gak terdeteksi, 12 lagu untuk durasi 8 menitan. Semoga tetap membawa kenangan tersendiri, arsip sebuah era kejayaan. Btw kapok bikin video kompilasi begini, dapat klaim hak cipta dari youtube tanpa keterangan. (nDy)
