Favorite song from the 80s?? Started by: LudariusCane on Dec 05, '20 22:57

I'm not an 80s child but I have heard some great things about the 80s, especially the music arena. Care to share?

The 80’s were terrible, particularly the music.
Tho I suppose there was some exceptions.
It is after all, the decade that gave us... MANOWAR!,

Well for me who is born in the end of the 80's I honestly can't say a specific song or band that is great, but I love almost all of it. I have albums with songs from the 80's and I love most of them. I will put on songs here as soon as I remember them all, but for now I want to mention Michael Jackson.. He has several songs in the 80's that's not just good, but amazing. Just to mention a few: Beat It, Thriller, Billie Jean... And Earth Song we won't even go into, because that one is just.. Wow for me.

Take Me Home Tonight by Eddie Money. Maybe? it's a catchy tune. The 80's were full of garbage music for sure. Pop music has always been garbage though... 


I like The Cars, so maybe something by them?

Probably a tie for me between Just Like Heaven (The Cure, 1987) and Tainted Love (Soft Cell, 1982).

Marilyn Manson did a cover of Tainted Love in 2001 that I thought was pretty cool, too.

It's almost impossible to pick a favourite! The 80s was a decade of amazing music, esp so many epic ballads. Anything by Bon Jovi and Aerosmith. One of my all-time faves is I Don't Want To Miss A Thing by Aerosmith.

Being born mid-80s and having older brothers and sisters theres a lot memorable songs but one that always sticks in my head is once in a lifetime by the talking heads. Its a strange but very catchy song... but seriously in a decade with the cure, joy division, r.e.m, U2, the smiths, the cult etc all on top form whats not to love.

Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order is my all-time favorite song. My parents would just blast it on the stereo whenever we’d take roadtrips when I was a kid, that never happens now so I think it makes me miss those simpler times in life. Take on Me by a-ha is also a song that triggers happy memories, my college friends and I would make covers of old songs ironically but we ended up unironically liking that one more than the others :)

80s had alot of great songs. I couldn't narrow it down to just one song! That would be madness (I really hope people get that joke)


If I had to just pick a few off the top of my head then 


Girls just want to have fun by Cindy lauper 

Billie Jean by Micheal Jackson 

Wake me up before you go wham


I could list so many more but 80s was an elite time for music

Gotta go along with SavageEagle here.  "Crazy Train" was a beast and got millions of kids into metal, leading to an explosion in the genre which is still used as an influence by many bands today.

Oh the 80s didn't have totally bad music.  
I've  had a lot of fun with this song

Girls Just Want To Have Fun

The Message by Grandmaster Flash. It's the first song in hiphop to talk about how bad the slums are and he does so in such a beautiful yet gruesome way; he paints a beautiful dichotomy. Of course, hiphop doesn't sound like that nowadays, so it might not be for everyone, but do listen to the words and what Flash is saying.
