As the 1980s roared on, more and more people lent their ears to the soft side of rock, for good reason! It just feels good to groove to these tunes!
Back in the 1980s, some rock and roll bands aged, but instead of calling it quits, they decided to transcend their musical upbringing and continue making music that would reflect how they felt at that different time in their life. Soft rock was born and artists such as Huey Lewis and The News set out to approach the music from a completely different standpoint. It was not about overpowering listeners with aggressiveness or loud guitars, but it was about creating great vibes with positive melodies and awesome ideas, which would later allow rock music to be exposed to a wider and more diverse audience. Soft rock might lack in terms of immediacy and urgency, but it definitely makes up for it in terms of elegance and forward-thinking production values. Give the gift of positive rock vibes with this mixtape!
