168This Charming Man - The Smiths
169Holiday - Madonna

Covered by Girl Authority. - playstationfan66

170Whip It - Devo

Definitely not Devo's best song but I still voted because Devo is the best. I think in the 80s their albums Oh No! It's Devo and New Traditionalists were the best. Far better than Freedom Of Choice, which has Whip It on it. Although their punk stuff from the 70s was the best! - asdfalexia

"Classic. That's one word to describe this song. Classic, but a good one! "

Covered by Devo 2.0 from their recent release. - playstationfan66

171Sara - Fleetwood Mac
172Toy Soldiers - Martika
173About a Girl - Nirvana
1742 Minutes to Midnight - Iron Maiden

Too many bands try and compete with iron maiden, the fact that Metallica songs are higher on this list surprises me, this song has such a thrill to it, easily best song of the 80s

175Atomic - Blondie
17618 and Life - Skid Row
177Come on Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners

This should be much higher! It's my favorite 80s song by far! I agree that Living on a Prayer should be number two, though.

Wow my not only my favorite 80's song, my favorite song of all time

At this moment you mean everything..

This is the #1 song for me
