Greatest '80s Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 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!

This song should be at least in the top ten. The saxophone solo is amazing!

Song of my heart!

142 Another Part of Me - Michael Jackson
143 What About Love? - Heart
144 You Might Think - The Cars

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

145 Poor Unfortunate Souls - Pat Carroll
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

is good

152 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath
153 The Seventh Stranger - Duran Duran

Love this song….. & all this time I thought David Bowie sang this song….
**hits herself on her forehead**

157 Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue
158 How Soon Is Now? - The Smiths

A classic indie rock track with great lyrics and awesome Johnny Marr guitar.

This song is amazing.

I don't know who it can be now, but he comes from a land down under, where women glow and men plunder.

Needs to be higher!
