Drivetime – The ’80s Playlist

At The Allrounder we like the ’80s. Actually, if we’re being honest with ourselves we’re pretty much obsessed with the 80s. Yeah sure, we like new stuff. We listen to the latest mixes, we go to clubs. We’re pretty hip, kind of. But if you ever see us in the gym or running a half marathon wearing headphones, the chances are, more often than not, we’re listening to ’80s music.

Not just any ’80s music though. We’re not your average Hits Of The 1980s/Best Of Wham CD listeners. We like something a bit more interesting, the kind of ’80s music you only know about if you really care about the era. The stuff your mum and dad probably remember.

That’s where Drivetime comes in. A 100-song playlist carefully pulled together over countless weeks and months. Seven hours of choice-picked tracks from artists you may already have heard of and others that look like we made them up for the purposes of an unnecessary joke.

No need to thanks us. Just invite us to your next house party.
