There are an abundance of performers this year who in some manner are very 80s (some from living it, others from riffing off it). Who do you think does it best?

Kraftwerk and Kavinsky.

no offense, but this is a bad poll on many many levels.

Explain yourself so I call respond and tell you why you are wrong.

I'm assuming that most of the selections don't pertain to the 80's is why???

Can you honestly listen to Chromeo, and the others listed here, and say that they do not pertain to the 80s? Better bone up on your music history, boy.

Just a quick example:
Kavinsky: all but borrows his music and aesthetic from Giorgio Moroder's late 70s/early 80s movie soundtracks

um, for starters - its the odd comparision of bands from the 80's and those imitating 80's music (chromeo), so this poll is confusing. Even with that, the poll selections are just as strange?

That's why.

A better poll would be Bands that sound like they are from the 80's, or 80's Bands Still Doin Their 80's style ... then again your poll would have only 2-4 choices, which ain't much of a poll, hence my commnet.

Thoroughly unconvincing critique, doesn't really justify a rejoinder. Please start again.

Calvin Harris, what a funny guy. Doesn't he make fun of the 80's?

and his song is that stuff that was acceptable in the 80's isn't now. so he would entirely be contradicting that song by singing in a musical style acceptable in the 80's.

Kavinsky has a very 80's feel to it.
Kind of crusing music.

Kraftwerk is far from the 80's.

Granted, Kraftwerk recorded much of their best music in the 70s, but they were hugely influential among 80s performers (in the same way that 80s groups have influenced many contemporary groups listed here), hence the reason they were included on this poll -- oh, and btw, Computer World was released in '81, Electric Cafe in '86. So, tell me again why Kraftwerk doesn't fit and why this poll is stupid?

Seems there are 1) a lot folks with little imagination and/or music knowledge on this board and/or 2) lots of just plain haters.

No haters - we just want polls that make sense. This poll does not do that. The confusion alone is why it is not a good poll, start again.
