100 Years of Christmas Music - 1980's

Music has always been a vital part of my Christmas celebrations, even since I was a child and into my adulthood.  During my childhood my family started out with a small radio that my parents placed on the fireplace mantel but then years later that was replaced with a surround sound stereo.  However, the real music that stands out in my memory was from Christmas Eve candle light services hearing the German Baptist choir harmonizing the songs of the season.

Even more precious than the choir music that I have memorialized in my heart occurred around the Advent Wreath during our 
"Advent Family Worship" (click HERE to read).

In this series I will feature Christmas songs from each decade over the past 100 years.
We just finished featuring songs from the 70's (click HERE to view 1970's)
  Today we continue our musical study with the "1980's."
The final decade of the Cold War occurred during the Eighties.  The Berlin Wall came down in 1989.  The AIDs epidemic became realized in the 1980's.  Global Warming was the focus both scientifically and politically.  There were great advances in medicine and specifically in reproductive science - the first gestational surrogacy happened in 1985 with the first birth in 1986.  Technology continued to take off during the 80's with Arcade video games, personal computer, walkman and boomboxes.  The first mobile phone in 1984, the first CD in 1982 and Microsoft introduced MS-DOS operating system.

There were some great Christmas movies filmed during the Eighties that we now consider classics.  Here are a few trailers from those movies:
