Best song ever

Welcome back Victoria
Since you've gone you know that no-one's really missed you
Welcome back Victoria
And now your friends watch over everything
That we-ee do
Welcome back Victoria
So the pendulum swings back
Welcome back Victoria
You went away, OK
We got a little slack
And once again you'll cover up
What you don't understand
Don't close your eyes
You can't hide behind your hands
Welcome back Victoria
We'll be no threat when we're deaf, dumb and blind
Welcome back Victoria
Clean books, clean screens, clean words,
Dirty minds
I am a child of the sixties
And for that I must pay
You wag your finger all you like
I'll tell you something, it's my children
They'll have no choice but to say
Welcome back Victoria
I trust your piano legs are covered up again
Welcome back Victoria
Double standards are your forte, now as then
Welcome back Victoria
We'll tip our tophats
To those who walk the streets
And you know what i mean, now
Welcome back Victoria
On Commercial Street
Be careful who you meet
But you're alright, jack
Welcome back, welcome back, yeah
Welcome back, welcome back, eehee hee

Tough question, there are a lot of great songs from the 80's. Tears for fears is one of my favorite bands. Johnny hates jazz- shattered dreams was a great song. Real life- send me an angel was really great. Eddie money, hall and oats, toto, the scorpions. Too many to name really.  I wish I could remember them all, but  unfortunately I can't.

Not old enough to remember this all. 

But one that always stuck in my head.

I never really enjoyed music in the 80s until acid house started appearing towards the end. Bomb The Bass really hit the spot. While Beat Dis was the big hit they had, I always preferred the follow-up Megablast.

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor.  Remember seeing Rocky III and coming out so pumped up....Thank god I didn't get in a fight!  LOL

I don't really know but according the music my parents were listening to it was a hot time.  I remember  these songs well - Michael Jackson’s Beat it and Billie Jean, Prince -  When Doves cry, The Rolling Stones - Start Me Up, Super Freak – Rick James and so many more.  It was a time when you understood the words to a son.

I can't say there are a lot of 80's songs that I like.  There were some great bands in the 80's, but also a lot of shitty ones.  I was really too young to listen to music until late 80's.  I was always a fan of the rock/metal/hair bands, whatever you want to call them.  Guns N Roses was probably my favorite back then, pretty much their whole Appetite for Destruction album was stellar.

I also like into the grove by Madonna.

The 80s were filled with some really good dance music. Far too many to pick

Best play list is 80s dance classics

My favorite song in the 80's would be "Pass the Dutchie" by Musical Youth.

The lyrics has a great story.


"This generation
Rules the nation
With version
Music happen to be the food of love
Sounds to really make you rub and scrub
I say
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side (I say)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a go bun, give me music, make me jump and prance
It a go dung, give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance (Jah know!)
It was a cool and lonely breezy afternoon
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
You could feel it 'cause it was the month of June
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
So I left my gate and went out for a walk
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
As I pass the dreadlocks' camp I heard them say
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side (I say)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a go bun, give me music, make me jump and prance
It a go dung, give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance (Jah know!)
So I stopped to find out what was going on
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
'Cause the spirit of Jah, you know he leads you on
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
There was a ring of dreads and a session was there in swing
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
You could feel the chill as I seen and heard them say
(How does it feel when you got no food?)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side (I say)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a go bun, give me music, make me jump and prance
It a go dung, give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance (Jah know!)
'Cause me say listen to the drummer, me say listen to the bass
Give me little music make me wind up me waist
Me say listen to the drummer, me say listen to the bass
Give me little music make me wind up me waist, I say
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side (I say)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a go bun, give me music, make me jump and prance
It a go dung, give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance (Jah know!)
You play it on the radio
And so me say, we a go hear it on the stereo
And so me know you a go play it on the disco
And so me say we a go hear it on the stereo (bow!)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side (I say)
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left hand side
It a go bun, give me music, make me jump and prance
It a go dung, give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance (Jah know!)
On the left hand side (I say)
On the left hand side (I say)
On the left hand side
(We meet) On the left hand side (say man)
On the left hand side
Me say east, say west, say north and south (on the left hand side)
This is gonna really make us jump and shout (on the left hand side)
Me say east, say west, say north and south (on the left hand side)"

lots of good songs came from the 80's. Van Halen, Ratt, Def Leppard, The Cars, .38 Special, to name a few. I guess of all those examples my favorite is Def Leppard.  They had several goo songs back then (Hysteria, Love Bites, Animal, Rock of Ages, etc.) but my all time favorite from them was Photograph. Great song to dedicate to your ex.

Way too many awesome songs from the 80's. It is hard to pick just one. I think the last one I listened to (today while in my car to be exact) was "I Melt With You" by Modern English. "I made a pilgrimage to save this human race, never comprehending the race has long gone by." Awesome stuff. As an aside, I am unabashedly a Queen fanboy so 70s and 80s is just boss music.

I think my favourite 80s music is fly me to the moon original version.Its one of the best songs ever created until now.

My fave which has to be blasted out loud and was the finest song never to reach the coveted #1 spot is Vienna by Ultravox.

I like everything from the 80s lol! but if I have to pick one, I'm gonna say Tommy Page's "A Shoulder to Cry On" to be the best one for me.

"Words Don't Come Easy" by F.R David, "Breakout" by Swing Out Sisters, and  Michael Fortunati's "Give Me Up" are also worth mentioning.
