Greatest '80s Songsjpob
The Top TenXW
This is Not only the greatest song of the 80's but one of the greatest songs ever! People will be dancing to Billie Jean 100 years from now!
Billie Jean is the best song. Almost any age group can recognize it and even knows the singer which is unusual. It just such a great universal song for everyone to love. The way he danced it makes it stand out even more in our minds... love for Micheal xoxo RIP - love4mjj
There was only ONE song in the 80s and it was Billie Jean ;)... Nah, I'm just playing. The 80s had some great songs albeit many melodramatic, but still great. Billie Jean is just something else. It's got something hypnotic in it that just keeps you coming back over and over again.

Billie Jean Is #1 There's No Going Against That But Sweet Child Of Mine Is A Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Close 2nd
Great and amazing song thankfully Madonna isn't on this list except 19 I'm happyV17 Comments
This should be with Billie Jean... Everything else just Beat It! - iajaubab
This is the best song ever made in the 80s
I think this should be number one above Billie Jean... I mean, this is one of the King of Pop's most successful songs!
Yes! It's very catchyV4 Comments
All of the songs on this list are worthy to be on it - and as a pop song it is in a unwinnable contest against the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. However, this is one of the best pop songs to come in the 80s, and is still one of the best songs today. A catchy tune that is SO 80s style with amazing voice skills by Morten Harket. Not taking metal into consideration, one of the best songs to have come from Norway.
Not my favourite A-ha-song, but one of the best 80s-songs - Daisymorot
It is one of the best songs of the world!
This song is awesomeV22 Comments

SUMMER is a good song it also has a good beat and a clean sound from the singer

Come on guys! Thriller! One of the best, most well known, danceable songs of all time? It even took place before Michael Jackson screwed up his face! He was CUTE!

"I almost tried to make a dance for it! "
Zombie dance people!V4 Comments
Of course when we say A-Ha everyone think of TAKE ON ME - but this is way better stuff from them... Also in the same league as their title song "scoundrel days", "hunting high and low", "how sweet it was",...
One of my favorites songs, I love it! - ro-s
This song is amazing, deserves top 3, the lyrics are amazing and with morten voice, this is without question one the best of the 80's, a-ha forever!
Oh my gosh... I'm even MORE psyched to see TWO A-ha songs on this list, and both in the TOP TEN! A-ha really is an amazing and unique band that is still going today! And I love this song!V3 Comments

It is a timeless wonderful song that inspired even to those who weren't fans of the Swedish duo. Listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye!

Absolutely best song from Hard Rock Genre. It deserves top 10.
It's THE BEST SONG I HAVE EVER HEARD ITS MY NUMBER ONE OF ALL TIME I DESERVES AT LEAST TO BE ON TOP 3 AXL ROSE IS A GOD AND SLASH PLAYS LIKE A HERO.V4 Comments
One of the greatest song of all times from a great band. This song walks into any playlist any day. Listen to it, realize it's true potential and beauty, fall in love with it and listen to it again and if you don't like it you do not deserve to listen to music at all. This songs ranks way above where it currently.
This song has been popular in the 80s and in every year since. I doubt that there is a single person (in the US at least) who has never heard this song or does not like it. The placement of this song on this list, or rather off of it, is unbelievable.
Number 28? That's ok. I mean its only the most well known song in history. And its only been referenced in hundreds of movies and television shows. People know this song for a reason. BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST.
Should be number 3V13 Comments
Metallica what more can you say to that already makes any number of their songs a greatest classic but Fade To Black like Enter Sandman and more are well deserving of a top spot they redefined Rock n' Roll as did many other bands of the 80s Metallica will always be amazing regardless the time period its in
It seems that outside of the metal community the first three albums of Metallica are a little underrated. - Toraqi
The first 2 most people have heard of the MOP album metal fans or not. - MrQuaz680
Only because the is not mainstream... People don't realise the beauty of this song...
Should be number 1V5 Comments
Absolutely my 80s best song... Ann and nancy Wilson is awesome
Not a big fan of the 80s, but this is definitely my favorite.

One of the most beautiful songs I've heardV3 Comments
25years later and this song still has "if". Classic, great song! And Belinda's signature song of all time!
Belinda Carlisle sings this great song of the 80;s. - caybatha
"It's a good melody I got to admit. Belinda made a good song, I also admit to that. My mom and I sing along with that song every time it comes on the Radio! "
Just a great singerV5 Comments
That song is very, very romantic. I don't like Bonnie Tyler, but that song totally rocks. The lyrics are so personal..."And if you only hold me tight, we'll be hoding on forever".
Hokey music video, Great song. An all time classic, and one of my personal favorite songs.
One of my personal favorites as far as all music goes. It's in the top 10.V1 Comment
