Every decade has its memorable music. Who could forget David Bowie's "Life on Mars" in the '70s or Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in the '90s? Will any of us ever stop listening to Psy's 2012 opus "Gangnam Style?" Of course not. History is littered with great music, but there's just something amazing about the '80s, isn't there? That decade really helped shaped the musical landscape in ways that no other time has. It saw the rise of MTV and the music video, and really created visual rock stars people came to know and love. Musical acts of the 1980s were larger than life. Certainly larger than regular folk. They were horse large!
If you're not seeing the connection between '80s music and horses, you're probably just not looking hard enough. For instance, have you ever seen any competitions with horses, whether it's racing or even equestrian events at the Olympics? That rhythmic thumping of hooves is the perfect backbeat for any '80s song! And your tastes in '80s music will help us determine which horse breed is your spirit animal. Horses and music are both full of personality and that's just science. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the two have a ton in common. Answer these questions about your favorite '80s tunes and you'll see what we mean.
