Greatest '80s Songs


The Contenders: Page 12

221 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2

Come on. The biggest band of the 80s isn't even on here?
Sunday Bloody Sunday is one of the best songs ever, and one of their best concert performances for the last 26 years

222 Janie's Got a Gun - Aerosmith

285? I don't understand! Should be the #1 (Or in the top 5). The music and Steven Tyler voice are just incredible. The lyrics are amazing!

"Now that Janie's got a gun, she ain't never gonna be the same"

"She had to take him down easy and put a bullet in his brain. She said 'cause nobody believes me. The man was such a sleeze, he ain't never gonna be the same"

"Run away, run away from pain"
