Other Musical Styles

A couple of famous ladies returned to their musical roots in the 1980s....Barbra Streisand's album of Broadway showtunes was considered a classic the moment it was released, and Linda Ronstadt recorded big-band standards with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra.

Christian-based rock and pop also came to the forefront during the 1980s. Artists like Stryper and Amy Grant proved that faith could be cool, too.
