The 1980s were known for many things. Two-tone Rolex. Bad hair. And music, so much music.
We always love it when horology intersects with popular culture. So as part of our ’80s Week content bonanza, we asked our friend Matthew Schnipper – the omnivorous pop fan and delightfully droll writer who runs the Deep Voices newsletter – to make us a playlist of 1980s songs that grapple, in one way or another, with the concept of time.
It’s called Time After Time After Time After Time: HODINKEE Does the ’80s. And you can listen on Spotify right here.
Like any good mix, it’s a blend of old favorites and new discoveries. Schnipper’s tracklist and liner notes are below. Any songs you’d want to add? Leave ’em in the comments.
