!! Take the challenge and test your knowledge in our new British Invasion Rock
In music, the term "British Invasion" refers to a phenomenon in the mid-1960s, when British music groups were enormously popular in the United States. In this your knowledge of British Invasion
rock music by bands such as the Beatles
and the Rolling Stones
In the 80s
was launched and music-videos began to have a larger effect on the record industry. Pop artists such as Michael Jackson
, Whitney Houston
, Duran Duran
, and, perhaps most notably, Madonna
mastered the format and helped turn this new product into a profitable business.
New Wave and Synthpop were developed by many British and American artists, and became popular phenomena throughout the decade, especially in the early and mid-eighties. Music grew fragmented and combined into subgenres such as house, goth, and rap metal. Relive the 80s on vinyl!
Longtime friends and admirers of one another, Dolly Parton
, Linda Ronstadt
and Emmylou Harris
first attempted to record an album together in the mid-70s, but scheduling conflicts and other difficulties (like each recording on different record labels) prevented any of their combined efforts from coming to fruition. Some aborted recording sessions did make it onto some solo recordings. For example, Parton and Ronstadt recorded a version of the traditional ballad I Never Will Marry
, which appeared on Ronstadt's 1977 Simple Dreams

Did you know Miami Vice
would spend $10,000 or more per episode to buy the rights to original recordings? An iconic scene from the Miami Vice
pilot involves Crockett and Tubbs driving through Miami at night to the Phil Collins
megahit song In the Air Tonight
. Jan Hamme
r's title theme climbed to the top of the U.S. Billboard charts (and earned two Grammy Awards). Glenn Frey
's You Belong to the City
was also a hit single (#2 on Billboard's Hot 100).

80s British R&B sensation, Sade
), is not a solo artist but a band. Often mistaken, the group is named for its sultry lead singer, Sade Adu

The cover art (designed by Mick Haggerty) for Ghost in the Machine
by The Police
features a seven-segment display-inspired graphic that depicts the heads of the three band members each with a distinctive hair style (from left to right, Andy Summers, Sting
with spiky hair, and Stewart Copeland with a fringe). The album's cover is ranked at number 45 on VH1's 50 Greatest Album Covers
Me and Paul
focuses on Willie Nelson
's longstanding relationship with band-members, especially drummer Paul English
. That relationship was an effective emotional touchstone for this entire set of songs, some of which are remakes of Nelson
songs from his early Nashville period. Nelson
wrote the title track for English
in 1971, and in a classic bit of songwriting, details some hilarious exploits on the road, it also has the distinction of being one of the few songs in existence about a drummer.

Both the title and the concept of the cover for Supertramp
's Crisis? What Crisis?
were conceived by member Rick Davies
, as John Helliwell
recounted: "It was Rick that came up with the name Crisis? What Crisis?
and one day, when we were sitting around Scorpio Studio, he came in with this sketch of a guy in a deck chair under an umbrella with all this chaos going on around him."
