We can dance if we want to! Here's a place to showcase your 70s-80s New Wave and Post Punk recordings. Here are a couple of lists to provide guidelines for which bands go here:

You can post four songs a day, fresh or pre-records. Please listen to each other. I don't see a lot of this type of music being sung on SingSnap imo, so l'd love to hear yours.
