The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.
Have you every heard of Fritz and the Tantrums? They do remind me of the 80's. They sound a bit like Duran Duran to me. It is repetitive and in your face, but much of the 80's was. They are an American no soul/indie pop band from LA. They started out in 2008 with their first release in 2010 called Pickin' Up the Pieces. They have been on many shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and more.
What I like is that yes they have vocals (Michael Fitzpratrick and Noelle Scagges), but they also have a range of interments: Keyboard, Percussion, Saxophone, Flute, Guitar, Bass, and Drums. It's more lively than many other bands today.
