an electronic mix of 80s synth

Hello and welcome back… Ok, technically not an electronic band but they heavily used electronic drums so it’s sorta ok… I was asked at a 80s party i went to last week, “what 80s band had the most influence on you” ?… i answered “def leppard – hysteria”… why? she asked… Because i died while listening to the song “rocket” (a song of the hysteria album ).. It was 4am and i was on my way to work on my mountain bike and was listening to hysteria on my walkman when i was hit by a car traveling around 80 kph.. I remember laying on the road, freezing, and hearing the ambulance getting closer.. I could still hear the def leppard song playing through the headphones around my neck..That’s when i saw this incredible light… a white light that was suspending my body.. and the most euphoric feeling i have ever lasted about 30 seconds.. The ambulance team brought me back and i was air lifted to 3 hospitals for 4 major operations.. I died again on the forth operation and again i was brought back…I broke my pelvis in 4 places that severed the main arteries to my legs which bled into my stomach… After 32 blood transfusions i was on the road to recovery and here’s where it gets weird… 4 months laying in hospital i watched alot of tv and i saw the video to “rocket”.. with dismembered bicycles in the back ground, right when i impacted with the car (just after the second chorus ) the words flash across the screen “collision course” and sings “we’re gonna fly”… and fly i did… strangely enough i also used this album as part of my rehab.. I also suffered a dislocated shoulder and broken collar bone so i used to practice drumming to the sounds of “def leppard” get my mobility back in my arm. To me this album is one of the best ever 80s albums, even if it nearly killed me listening to it.
Track list is =

1 = women

2 = rocket

3 = animal

4 = love bites

5 = pour some sugar on me

6 = armageddon it
