Most Memorable 80s Songs by a Female Singer


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Self Control - Laura Branigan

Laura Branigan ROCKED this song, nothing Madonna, Lauper sang even comes close in my book and many others, just listen closely and you'll agree too, Like a prayer before this masterpiece, what a joke.

Wonderful, beautiful, sincere and very talented singer often overlooked by the people. I recommend listen and above all, SEE her live performances to every person in the world. She was really FABULOUS PERFORMER!.

Best sexy pop song, with great rock riffs. Very best voice of the 80's.

Sexy with a bit of rock, and european sound, combined with Laura's powerful voice.
