81 Relax - Frankie Goes to Hollywood Relax - Frankie Goes to Hollywood

Great song, turn it up loud and enjoy

Heard this song sooo much at the clubs and dance bars. Beat it to DEATH!

The best 80s song, along with 2 Tribes and Welcome to the Pleasuredome.

82 In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins

This song is amazing. So much emotion and thought. There's more to it than just someone drowning. It also links to Phil's breakup. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
