Greatest '80s Songs


The Contenders: Page 12

221 Woman - John Lennon
222 West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys

This song is hypnotic... It wasn't catchy at first but I swear I can never take off my earphones before the song ends...

The song's name was derived from a Home Improvement store in Houston (West End Lumber). - playstationfan66

Love those guys!

223 If You Want My Love - Cheap Trick

They always play this in concert and the girls swoon. - FearlessFreep

224 Smooth Operator - Sade
225 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

226 Like a Virgin - Madonna

I love this song make me feel like imma explode

My favorite Madonna song!

This song was THE best song until vouge came out

227 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"
