Here are ten Spotify playlists full of (mostly) alternative music from the 1980s, all hand-curated by me for your listening pleasure. Each playlist contains songs released in that year (or, in some cases, very late the year before) in genres like New Wave, Punk, Post-Punk, Goth Rock, Synthpop, New Romantic, Power Pop, Jangle Pop, and more. If you were a young person in the 1980s, or simply enjoy 80s music, I hope you find these both entertaining and memory-invoking.
