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

I wasn’t even born then but I listened to some of Queen’s releases in that time and I’d say my favorites were Save me and Another one bites the dust.

Winston_P_Bear such a great song! It was until years later that I realized I didn't know the words to the chorus/hook. I literally could understand it. After looking it up, the song make more sense...

The Message by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five. It's a hip hop song from 1982. It's the first song in the genre's industry to speak about racial segregation, poverty and how the hood really is. It got a lot of traction when it was released. Very good song and if you listen to it, I suggest you pay attention to the lyrics. You can also hear the disco inspiration that hip hop was founded on.

The final countdown is apretty good song from 1986 and probably one of the only ones I know, and was even featured in the hit game lego rockband.

So I don't remember much but in recent years I've drifted back and in my house at the moment it's mostly 70s and 80s being played...I'm the eldest in the household and youngest is 15.

This song has always been great. The into...love it

She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stare too long, I'd probably break down and cry

Whoa, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by

Whoa, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Whoa whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine

Whoa, yeah
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Whoa, oh, whoa, oh
Sweet love of mine
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Ooh, yeah
Ooh, sweet love of mine

Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Ooh, oh, where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Oh, where do we go now?
Where do we go? (Sweet child)
Where do we go now?
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
Where do we go now?
Ah, ah

Where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
Oh, where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, where do we go now?
Now, now, now, now, now, now, now
Sweet child
Sweet child of mine

I do give a lot of crap to music from the 80s, but in truth, some of my all time favourite bands started out back then. Here’s a gem from ‘86...
Crank it up!

Can this really be narrowned down to just one single song.

 

This must be the most difficult decision to make in my entire life.

 

But the winner is..........

Sinead O'Connor nothing compares

Probably anything that had to do with Guns N Roses... Favorite band growing up and an even better late 80s band

This is a tough question. I am a big fan of 80s rock and pop and it is extremely difficult to decide which song is my favorite but that could just be as someone who has issues making decisions. I'll give my top fifteen songs from the 80s but they aren't in any specific order.

 

-"Your Love" The Outfield

-"Take On Me" a-ha

-"Never Surrender" Corey Hart 

-"Every Breath You Take" The Police

-"Beat Patrol" Starship

-"Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now" Starship

-"Uptown Girl" Billy Joel

-"It's Still Rock and Roll to Me" Billy Joel

-"Forever Young" Rod Stewart

-"Everybody Wants to Rule the World" Tears for Fears

-"Mad World" Tears for Fears

-"Under Pressure" David Bowie and Queen

-"Do they know it's Christmas?" Band Aid 

-"Can't Fight this Feeling" REO Speedwagon

-"More than a Feeling" Boston

I thought about answering this on a whim, but I decided to check 10 years of playing history on last.fm (which has logged more than 100,000 tracks that I've played in that time on basically every music player I've used) and have answers rooted in cold, hard numbers:


1. Pixies - Gigantic (1988)
2. Pixies - Where Is My Mind? (1988)
3. Blondie - Rapture (1980)
4. Tears for Fears - The Working Hour (1985)
5. The Cure - Lovesong (1989)

Probably cory harts I wear my sun glasses at night lol.  i play it for my daughter all the time.  i like foreigner too and lots of van halen

Report Post Tip

I could literally name a bunch of old-school music, but for the sake of being "traditional 80s". I'd have to go with Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"

 

Most songs by the cure are also acceptable.

Don't know if you would class them as 'the best' but some of my favourites would be

Sonic youth - schizophrenia
The smiths - there is a light that never goes out!
The pixies - Gouge away

There is nothing that lifts up my ood as Take on Me. It's impossible to not belt that song out loud. Also cheating a bit, from 1990, Tren al Sur by Los Prisioneros. A nice recommendation that gives me the same high as Take on Me wile I'm driving ^^

Is Rick Astleys Never gonna give you up from the 80s..?

Walk like an Egyptian from the Bangles

This is not really my most favorite song, but i remember we always danced like the Bangles did at an evening out. As soon as the music started with this song, everyone acted like an Egyptian :)
