Sax in the '80s

Just wanted to draw your attention to a great '80s related post over at fellow retro-blogger Go Retro! about the prominence of sax in '80s music. Very fun post full of music videos. Takes you back..

Reminds me of that line from the Rob Lowe character in St. Elmos Fire ("Billy") who is a sax player in a very '80s-ish band in that very 80s movie: "Do You believe in premarital sax?" Admittedly bad line.

Here's a saxy clip from that movie:


It seems like this is a popular topic. Another of my fave retro blogs
Kickin It Old School has had a post on the same topic.

Check it Out.


  1. I did an issue myself several years back that you might also enjoy checking out>

  2. Thanks so much Lazlo for linking to me! Although I will admit Old School up there has a more comprehensive list with so many songs I had forgotten featured a sax. Thanks too for posting that St. Elmo's Fire clip.
