1980s Chill Out Set - Iron Maiden, Tears for Fears - 320kbps

This is my first attempt at an "Ambient" set and I use that term very loosly since this set has various types of music which is not ambient. Yet the overall theme is what I would concider a chill out experience.

In the 80s there was this particular sound which was never pigeon holed, to me its just "that 80s sound". This sound consists of synthisized drums, tons of long reverb tails, saxiphones, and this very particular guitar sound... a way of playing the guitar with reverb. The tracks in this set have one or more of those above mentioned things which is what ties this all together.

This kind of music is the sonic equivalent to my memories in Wildwood NJ when I was a kid. Often a night would be ruined by heavy rain storms yet I'd end up getting to the boardwalk anyway with a rain coat. This music feels like those times. Its also the sort of music that I imagine that if I had been my age back in the 80s and had a nice car, I would be cruising around listening to this... which is what I'm doing now anyway only unfortunatly its no longer the 80s.

Tracklist:
01). Tangerine Dream "Firetoungues"
02). The Cars "Heartbeat City"
03). Dawn of the Dead Soundtrack "Figment"
04). Peter Schilling "Major Tom (Coming Home)"
05). Talking Heads "Once in a Lifetime"
06). Tangerine Dream "Phaedra"
07). Hall & Oats "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)"

09). Twisted Sister "The Price"
10). ZZ Top "Rough Boy"
11). Tangerine Dream "Phaedra"
12). Billy Idol "Eyes Without a Face"
13). Mick Smiley "Magic"
14). INXS "Mediate"
15). Tears for Fears "Working Hour"
16). Tangerine Dream "Long Island Sunset"
17). Quiet Riot "Twilight Hotel"
18). Power Station "Lonely Tonight"

20). Dawn of the Dead Soundtrack "Cosmogony Part 1"
21). YMO "Silence of Time"

Soundcloud only lets me upload one thing and then it wants me to pay money. The only way around that would be to make seperate user accounts for each MP3 which is a pain.

I added a niceboots download link up top, that should help you as some ppl have trouble downloading from file front for some reason.
