142 Another Part of Me - Michael Jackson
143 Careless Whisper - George Michael

How come this song isn't ranked higher on this list? The vocals and the production of this song made it the masterpiece it is!

144 You Might Think - The Cars

Classic 80s. Awesome keyboard and lyrics. One of the Cars greatest.

145 Crying in Rain - A-Ha V 1 Comment
146 99 Luftballons - Nena

A totally 80's classic - should be higher than some of the crappy songs in the top 100

Early 80;s if it had been a few years later might have been higher on list
