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!!

"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.

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!

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...
