It’s Friday and PoPTV is in the mood for classics of the post-punk era…

The Pretenders – Back on the Chain Gang (1982)

Chrissie Hynde is still going strong and Pretenders will be touring Oz soon… someone bring them to Singapore!

Still gives me goosebumps when I see this. First music video ever played on MTV. Classic indeed.

[amazon-product alink=”0000FF” bordercolor=”000000″ height=”240″]B0000257O9[/amazon-product]The Jam – When You’re Young (1979)

Probably my favorite band of this special era – sharp pop energy!

[amazon-product alink=”0000FF” bordercolor=”000000″ height=”240″]B0000076ET[/amazon-product]The Police – Don’t Stand So Close To Me (1980)

I wanted to be Sting back then šŸ™‚ Grateful that I saw them during the reunion tour at Indoor Stadium – would have been great to have seen them in the early 80s but better late than never.

OMD – Enola Gay (1980)

Fell head over heels in love with this when I first heard it all those years ago and it still works for me! Old and new music colliding… the likes of which we’ll never hear again…
