Party Like It’s 1984 With Halt and Catch Fire‘s Latest Spotify Playlist

halt-and-catch-fire-episode-110-spotify-1984-200x2001983 proved to be an eventful year for the team at Cardiff Electric, whose venture into the PC market has been fraught with double-crosses, romantic trysts, and hiccups of both the technical and legal variety. Now, 1984 is approaching and the team is poised to unleash their Giant onto the market (the same year that Apple will unveil its game-changing Macintosh). To celebrate such a seminal year in the history of personal computers, Halt and Catch Fire‘s music supervisor Thomas Golubić and his team at SuperMusicVision have created a new Spotify playlist highlighting the pop hits of 1984. While Cardiff’s future may be uncertain, 1984′s place in music history is secure thanks to artists like U2, Depeche Mode, and David Bowie. Check it out below, and get ready to party like it’s 1984 all over again.

Halt and Catch Fire SpotifyWhen Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) first arrived at Cardiff Electric, she brought a punk sensibility to the company’s conservative corporate environment. Cameron’s taste for loud, abrasive music — which she blasted constantly while coding the PC’s BIOS — didn’t exactly endear her to her coworkers. But now, Cameron is slowly learning to work with others and has become the leader of a motley team of coders. Check out her evolution in this updated playlist of ’80s music for Cameron Howe on Spotify, curated by Halt and Catch Fire’s Music Supervisor Thomas Golubić and his team at SuperMusicVision, which traces Cameron’s transition from punk to post-punk with a mix of new wave and indie artists like Sonic Youth and The Cure.

’80s Playlist for Halt and Catch Fire’s Donna Clark Now on Spotify

Donna Clark SmallHalt and Catch Fire’s Donna Clark (Kerry Bishé) is a brilliant engineer in her own right, but must balance raising two children, her career and her increasingly erratic husband Gordon, who is wreaking havoc in her home. Fearing that the new Cardiff Electric PC project will result in the end of her marriage, it’s no wonder her personal mixtape leans towards the relaxing side, with artists like Billy Joel, Joni Mitchell and — owing to a background in classical music studies — a little Chopin and Mozart to boot.

’80s Playlist for Halt and Catch Fire’s Cameron Howe Now on Spotify

Halt and Catch Fire SpotifyHalt and Catch Fire‘s volatile computer prodigy Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis) is a shock to the system of conservative, old-guard Cardiff Electric.

So of course Cameron’s personal mixtape would lean towards the punk side of the ’80s music scene with head-banging tracks by Blondie, The Slits and The Clash. See what else Cameron would listen to with this exclusive Spotify playlist of ’80s music for Cameron Howe, courtesy of Halt and Catch Fire’s Music Supervisor Thomas Golubic and his team at SuperMusicVision.
