The Unforgettable Fire - indisputably the greatest song of the 80s, in fact ever, with the possible exception of a little song called Gas Panic which I plug with every avaliable opportunity...

bruce springsteen--the river

a whole decade of music after that song can't compete with its greatness.

(note: i'm sure i'll change my mind in a few minutes)

I do love Peter Gabriel and "Red Rain" is a particular favorite, but since I am at heart a hard core fan of The Church, I have to go with "Under the Milky Way." That song began my long term love affair with that band, and I will always adore it. Plus it really is an incredible song.

Good choice as well, and I also love "Tantalized," as it really captures the excesses of the 80's (or at least SK's excesses....)

As long as you don't say "Maybe These Boys" we'll be OK... Gawd! What a horrid song!

Ooohh, another song I think of as quintessential 80's is "Tenderness" by General Public. Nowhere near as good as UTMW (which I mentioned above), but I always enjoyed that song.

...gotta give a to these songs, too (and let's throw "With Or Without You" in there, too. That's definitely one of the best songs from that decade (hell, of all time), in my opinion).

I've thought long and hard about this for years (well, since 1990 i guess) and my 2 favorite 80's songs were chosen because i think they represent the 1980's best:

Saftey Dance - Men w/o Hats
One Night in Bangkok - Murray Head

Rare gems indeed !!
