This was such a great list!

I can't pick just one. I love 80s music... and all music, really.

Jessi, in the 1980s I worked as an executive producer at an MTV style television station. We played the music videos for all of these songs and my production team interviewed The Thompson Twins, Kiss, Poison, Cinderella, Ratt and many other new wave, hard rock and heavy metal bands! It was an exciting experience. You would have loved the 80s!

Your list covered all the great songs! I also loved the Bangles during the 80's. My best friend and I loved to sing Walk Like an Egyptian!

Just Call Me Lynn said...

SUCH a GREAT list! You have several that I completely forgot about! Awesome, girl! Thanks for posting!

Great list! I went to an 80s party a couple weekends ago and they had probably more than half the songs on your list! Awesome :)

Absolutely nice and great collection of list in the 80's century. I loved the most is the total eclipse of the heart. This is me and my auntie favorite song. We usually sang it before bedtime.

A Rush and a Push and the Land is Ours by The Smiths or Enola Gay by O.M.D. I like your list though, good amount of cheesiness on there.
