The Contenders: Page 5
New Order are an incredible group; how the hell did they get left out until I added it?! When you think, hm... 80s... 80s... ; do songs like "Blue Monday", "Temptation" or "Crystal" appear in your mind?! They damn well should! So listen to them now!
Voice of an angel totally beautiful lady
Rick Astley is a famous singer, but he is best known for the internet meme "Rickrolling". While his main success came in the 80s and early 90s, he continues to record and perform live. His newest album, without a released name, was due to come out this month, but has been delayed due to a company break up at his record label.
Never gonna give him up never gonna let him down never gonna run around and desert him I love him and his singing
Why is he this down in the top 100 he had a big big hit in 1987

Wham! changed the course of pop forever
George Michaels can do no wrong
Come on. If these boys didn't define the face of 80s music.. I don't know who did. It is easy to forget (with the absence of the techno sound that dates the likes of Depeche Mode and Duran Duran) that this was the 80s. Last Christmas of course being the seasonal classic even today. Guaranteed dancefloor fillers: Club Tropicana, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, super cool base intro to Edge of Heaven. George Michael.. such cool moves and such a heart-throb.. who knew.
I have no idea why culture club is not even on this list. They were the first European band to have three hit singles in the United States since the Beatles. Most people would like to forget about culture club and boy george but when ranking the best artists of the 80s, culture club has to be taken into consideration.
They changed lives, I know they did mine!
And in my heart the fires still burning
Why isn't this band in the top 10?
I'm amazed they weren't suggested yet, maybe I missed it?V 2 Comments
