Like, OH MY GOD! It’s totally awesome you came back to find out what my favorite Q’s are from the 1980s. Like the most rad tv show, movie and music from the 80s.
Incorporating my love for history and time travel, Quantum Leap was a cool show that even did an episode on my number one love Elvis. Luckily the show debuted in March of 1989, so it qualifies as one of my favorite shows of the 1980s – and the only one I watched starting with Q.
I didn’t see any movies starting with Q in the 1980s – not that there were that many. But I found Quicksilver starring Kevin Bacon, Jami Gertz and Lawrence Fishburne, so it is probably not a bad movie.
Question of Lust by Depeche Mode
I am not a huge fan of Queen (sorry folks), and I like Quarterflash’s one song “Harden My Heart,” so I could not pick a band or singer starting with Q as my favorite music from the 1980s. I picked a song starting with Q, “Question of Lust,” by one of my favorite bands from the 80s, Depeche Mode, or as we affectionately dubbed them Depressed Mode. Ironically, “Questions of Lust” is not sung by lead singer Dave Gahan. Instead it is sung by Martin Gore, who also sang “Blasphemous Rumours” and my favorite Depeche Mode song “Somebody.” I think I might prefer Martin’s songs to Dave’s “People are People,” “Strangelove” and “Master and Servant.” I have seen Depeche Mode twice in concert (in the 1990s) as they were best friend’s favorite band.
Thank you for joining me on my trip back to the totally tubular 1980s as I complete my Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
