Top Ten Best Songs of 1985

The Top Ten

1 Take On Me - a-ha

I've been listening to that song for a whole month,if this is not one of the best songs ever it should be.

This is now a vine.

1985 was a bad year for rock music,so voting this. - Disturbedpotato

Even though this song is over thirty years old, I still love it. It’s very catchy, upbeat, and just amazing. The video is also pretty awesome too.

These old songs that are still loved by everyone are what my dad calls ‘Oldie Goldies’. - DewSpectrum11
