14 True Colors - Cyndi Lauper
15 Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie

Bowie said that with this song, he was "wrapping up the seventies really" for himself, which "seemed a good enough epitaph for it."
The music video was one of the most iconic of the 1980s, and was at the time it was produced the most expensive music video ever made (and remains one of the most expensive of all time).
This song introduced me to the incredible artist he was when I was a little kid, the song and the video really fascinated me (although I didn’t understand a word of the lyrics), it was one of my first "revelations" in music with The Beatles (which my brother made me discover). - Lotuscandy
