Songs from American Dad
October 1, 2012 12:04 PM   Subscribe

I really like some of the songs in the "Hot Water!" episode of American Dad, performed by Cee Lo Green. I'm especially thinking of the songs starting at 0:09 and 3:36 in this poor quality YouTube medley. What genre of music is this (70s? 80s?) and can you suggest songs for a playlist with this feel.

I'd call that "generic early 80' synth-pop". Look into Wham!, Erasure, Petshop Boys, etc.

The second bit reminds me of Level 42

Seconding cosmicbandito. The second song especially could be right off the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack. Check out A-Ha, too.

Also, thanks for making me figure out you can link to anywhere in a YT video!
