Top Ten Best Songs of 1980

The Top Ten

1 The Winner Takes It All - Abba

The guys who put minus before The Winner Takes It All are heartless and deaf. This song is indeed very beautiful and it deserves to be so high on this list. I definitely disagree with the person who implied that it is just a Eurovision pollutant. Seriously? Not in the least! On the contrary. It is such a melodious song, and it has much more soul and harmony than 'Love Will Tear As Apart' by Joy Division...
It is gold. Period!

ABBA ABBA ABBA, Compared to the most heartfelt song ever written. Seriously the writers of this go back to Alan Partridge land and shoot a T.V. producer. No Comparison a bunch of ex Eurovision pollutants and the best band of the past 30 odd years
