1980s Bands Making Comebacks
NEW YORK – The 1980s fashion has already been resurrected with the reemergence of leg warmers, parachute pants and ripped T-shirts, and it looks like the music is next.

Several bands famous in the ’80s are working on and releasing albums in the coming months.
As I told you yesterday Roland Orzabel and Curt Smith are joining back together and reforming Tears for Fears. Smith left the band in 1991 and Orzabel continued it until 1995. Now they’ve signed a recording contract with Arista Records. A new album is expected in the spring.
Europe, the poodle-haired 1980s rock band from Sweden, is also recording an album with new material, and a world tour is planned. The group is known for its hit “The Final Countdown.”
“After the first band jam in years it felt so right, like we’ve just been away for a lunch break,” drummer Ian Haugland said recently.
Singer Joey Tempest said the new music is “fresh and hard but still with the typical Europe melodies in focus.”
Europe split up in 1992. They reunited for a millennium concert in Stockholm on New Year’s Eve 1999.
American rockers are getting back in the limelight as well.
Bob Seger, whose tune “Old Time Rock ‘n’ Roll” was an ’80s staple, is releasing “Greatest Hits 2,” Nov. 4, which will include “Katmandu” and “Shakedown,” and will also feature three songs previously unavailable on a Seger album, plus two bonus videos.
And former 80s punk-girl Cyndi Lauper is teaming up with Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder for her new album “At Last,” which will feature her versions of standards such as “Makin Whoopee,” “Stay,” and “Walk On By.”
