80s music
So, for Valentines Day, my girlfriend gave me a $15 iTunes card as one of my gifts with a little note attached recommending I get a bunch of great 80s songs. So I downloaded 15 songs and I realized there is so much good 80s pop music out there!

Here are the ones I downloaded:

A-Ha: "Take On Me"
Berlin: "Take My Breath Away"
Dexy's Midnight Runners: "Come On Eileen"
Echo & The Bunnymen: "The Killing Moon"
A Flock Of Seagulls: "I Ran"
Madness: "Our House"
Modern English: "I Melt With You"
Murray Head: "One Night In Bangkok"
New Order: "Bizarre Love Triangle"
Phil Collins: "In The Air Tonight"
Simple Minds: "Don't You Forget About Me"
Soft Cell: "Tainted Love"
Tears For Fears: "Head Over Heals"
Tears For Fears: "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
Wang Chung: "Everybody Have Fun Tonight"

Any suggestions????

Some good stuff on there tourist! I'd add a Pet Shop Boys number for good measure as they always sum up the 80's to me. And here's a classis, Aztec Camera - Somewhere In My Heart.

I've already got How Soon. Gotta love the Wedding Singer soundtrack (also has such classics as White Wedding, Hold Me Now, Love My Way, Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Everyday I Write The Book, etc). Also I have a billboard top hits of 87 with Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House (one of the best 80s songs imo).

Paul Young - Come Back and Stay and Love of the Common People

Ultravox - Vienna

INXS - Don't Change

... man, I could go on and on.

No 80s list is complete with "Video Killed The Radio Star" by the Buggles.

phanan 02-18-2008 03:00 PM

Technically, that song was released in 1979, but yeah, it's considered to be part of the 80's due to the video's status.

corianderstem 02-18-2008 03:07 PM

Gary Numan - Cars

M - Pop Muzik

One of the other may have been released in 1979, but they were both on the first rock album I ever owned: K-Tel's "Rock 80." It was AWESOME.
