Greatest '80s Songsjpob
The Top Ten
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.
I love this song and how it tells a story. I also love how Michael didn't give out the name of the real Billie Jean. I LOve this guy! Definitely one of my favorites.V 45 Comments
Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan, Tico Torres & Alec John Such! - Nirmal1991USA

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
Number 1 way better than billie jeanV 22 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!
Great video and this is Michael Jackson's number 2 songV 5 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.
It is one of the best songs of the world!
Not my favourite A-ha-song, but one of the best 80s-songs - Daisymorot
Great song, but I would rather vote for The Sun Always Shines on T.V. if it was on hereV 28 Comments
One of the most memorable songs from the 80's. Bravo Bryan! You made true classic and real masterpiece - Irina2932
This song was on the radio when my granddaughter was born. I thought it was so cool to have music during childbirth. I was knocked out during the birth of my children. I think of her the minute I hear this song.
SUMMER is a good song it also has a good beat and a clean sound from the singer
This is a good Bryan Adams song but not top 10V 18 Comments
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!
The all time best! You can still listen to this to this date
"I almost tried to make a dance for it! "
9th best Michael Jackson song good choiceV 7 Comments
This is just the best of the eighties and of ozzy verly on top of iron man and mr. Crowley it should be in first place just bad taste not offending who posted this list but still good :-)
Randys greatest work and easily one of the greatest riffs and metal songs of all time!
Awesome to see my favorite song in top ten
One of my favorite songs of all timesV 12 Comments
I love this song so much! When I first heard it in Rocky 3 I fell in love with the song! I can't believe people like the crappy pop music of today oldies are way better!
Eye of the tiger is my most favorite song
Should be number 1 it gets you totally pumped up to do something when is heard it in rocky 3 it was motovating
I'm not gonna lie-I like 1 song better than this: Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer. Michael Jackson was a Child Malester (did I spell that right? ) and some of these like take on me, Summer if 69 and sweet child of mine- Just weren't impressive. - dwf4258V 16 Comments
Jump is totally wicked and no other Van Halen song beats this one.

Absolutely my 80s best song... Ann and nancy Wilson is awesome
Best song ever. This is the song that made me like the 80's
Heart is awesome great band love them
I love heart and Metallica how do the others top themV 10 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...
This is my favorite song of all time!V 10 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.
Worst song ever journey sucks and he is the most dumbest singer of all time!
What kind of stupid idiot are you? Only idiots who think songs of the past were worst! - AllstarofNBC1984V 17 Comments
This song should've been in the top 3! It was the greatest hit of 1984, and people from all over the world was crazy about this song! Michael Jackson and Bon Jovi rules but this song definitely doesn't deserve its place.
This song should definitely be in the top 5. This list is crazy for giving it the position it had now. It is and always will be an amazing, unique and groundbreaking song.
Doves Cry is one of the top songs of all time! Thriller was a great Album but beat it or Billie Jean are not even close to doves cry, People may not like prince but you can't take away what he has done for music. THE ICON
Best song of the 80's hands down. Prince broke the mold with this one. Never before had a song this bizzare and unconventional been taken to number one. And not a single time since. Written, composed, produced, and performed all by the greatest musician of our generation. All hail the Prince. 👑V 8 Comments
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.V 6 Comments
I love Like a Prayer but this one is even better! Great vocals!
One of the most beautiful songs I've heard
Oh come on. This song deserves to be in a higher position. And I see no sign of like a prayer.
Beautiful Song and a great Album coverV 5 Comments
One of the greatest songs ever recorded! Despite controversial music video, the song brings a very important message!
This song is amazing, what a great memory of the 80s
"Madonna's got something good going on."V 3 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!
More of a early nineties song but this song is great
This ever lasting romantic sensation makes me listen to my bitter sweet memories in the sands of time.

Queen - Another One Bites The Dust is one of the greatest examples of Queen and the rock genre as a whole, their playing style and their personality. Written by John Deacon, it's just plain and simply awesome, from the crazy great low bass line from John Deacon to the distinct vocal style of Freddie Mercury, giving this track a great start to begin with. And don't even get me started on the CPR drum beat. It's one of the things that makes this song. Hang on, the vocals are terrific, the bass line is funky, the drum beat keeps the tone of the song, and the guitar adds to the funkiness of the bass. All of this song's elements are just ridiculously good ON THEIR OWN, but put together? Forget it, this needs to be higher than 57, should be in the top 10.
This song is awesome, I listen to it everydayV 3 Comments
