Top Ten Best Songs of 1980


The Top TenXW

1The Winner Takes It All - ABBA

The guys who put minus before The Winner Takes It All are heartless and deaf. This song is indeed very beautiful and it deserves to be so high on this list. I definitely disagree with the person who implied that it is just a Eurovision pollutant. Seriously? Not in the least! On the contrary. It is such a melodious song, and it has much more soul and harmony than 'Love Will Tear As Apart' by Joy Division...
It is gold. Period!

superb Abba song , The Winner does takes it all, at least most of it - MatrixGuy

2Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
3Hit Me with Your Best Shot - Pat Benatar
4Breaking the Law - Judas Priest
5Call Me - Blondie
6Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
7A Forest - The Cure
8You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC
9Ace of Spades - Motörhead
10Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

The Contenders

11(Just Like) Starting Over - John Lennon
12Magic - Olivia Newton-John
13Hells Bells - AC/DC

Okay. This should be #1. Why? IT'S AC/DC PEOPLE! - masonkv

14Master Blaster - Stevie Wonder
15Don't Fall In Love With a Dreamer - Kenny Rogers and Kim Carnes
16Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
17Back In Black - AC/DC
18Lady - Kenny Rogers
19It's Still Rock and Roll to Me - Billy Joel
20Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division

ABBA ABBA ABBA, Compared to the most heartfelt song ever written. Seriously the writers of this go back to Alan Partridge land and shoot a T.V. producer. No Comparison a bunch of ex Eurovision pollutants and the best band of the past 30 odd years

Pure magic. A song that's well crafted yet still raw and emotional.
