Best Song from the 80's?

  1. So, what do you all think? Lately I have been listening to some good ole' 80's music and I have actually missed it!! What are some of your favorite 80's songs?? :love:

    For some reason I love the song "I Just Died in Your Arms Tonight" and "Whip It". Ha! So many more!!
  2. "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey.:love:

    It's the kind of song you always want to sing loud and obnoxiously when you're drunk ( and I have, in bars, more than once I'm sure.)

    I'm a sucker for 80s music.
  3. Oh so many! I'm an 80's music lover: So far what comes to mind:

    True - Spandau Ballet
    Material Girl, Crazy for you - Madonna
    Rock the Casbah - The Clash
    Endless Love - Lionel Richie, Diana Ross
    Private Eyes - Hall and Oates
    Too Shy - Kajagoogoo

    Nerd huh? I bet a lot of you were just born in the 80's! ha ha!
  4. I'm listening to "Touch you Once, Touch you Twice" right now..

    I LOVE THE 80's!!
  5. "Shout" and "Broken" by Tears for Fears

    i could go on forever! love 80s pop!

    and for the more adventurous: love will tear you apart - joy divison (ok, so i can't find the original release year for this song, and it was probably some time in the late 70s since i believe ian curtis killed himself in 1980, but it didn't reach a wider audience until the 80s so I'M COUNTING IT!)
  10. Berlin -- Take My Breath Away... goooooood!
  11. I have to dedicate this post to my Norwegian New Wave Heroes -

    A-HA "Take On Me" (EDIT: Oops, Amanda beat me to it!)

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Def Leppard. I still rock out to them. "Pour Some Sugar on Me!", "Pyromania", etc... etc...

    Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
    INXS - "Devil Inside" but that whole album was good
    Madonna - "Lucky Star", "Holiday"
    The Cure - "Just Like Heaven"

    But I still say that Ultimate 80's song has to be New Wave...
  12. If you leave by... oops I'm blanking.. by OMD? or is this a different song?
