The Contenders: Page 7
She only released a few singles in the 80's. Some of them were really great -"If I Could Turn Back Time", "Just Like Jesse James", "I Found Someone", "We All Sleep Alone"

"The band's best known song is of cours Africa"
"Best song of Toto with bass riff is Hold The Line"
"Best known songs by Toto: Africa, Hold The Line, Rosanna, Pamela, I'll be over you, Can't Stop Loving You etc."
Simply brilliant music. His high, clear and pitch-perfect voice seems to sugarcoat his incredible songs-- such as Arthur's Theme, Sailing, and Ride Like the Wind. Plus, many other great songs that didn't get enough recognition!
His song "Sailing" was awarded best song of the year in 1980. He doesn't receive enough kudos for his masterpieces.
Sailing has to be one of the most beautiful etherial songs ever for any decade. It "takes me back" in an instant. Incredible production. Easily one of my top ten tracks of all time.
Wasn't quite in the 80s on first release.
Devo was the last of the punk generation, yet completely original with concepts that will satisfy a nerd and with an upbeat rhythm to move everyone else.
Maybe a bit odd, but that's what makes this band fun. Weird rhythms, fun riffs, and a lot of synth sound made this band unique but cool.
80"s is not complete without Billy Idol, "Mony, Mony" got a crowd going anywhere if you didn't ride a pony it made you want to everybody got up danced, yelled and sang! Rebel Yell and White Wedding got some movement as well.
Eye of the tiger album? Play it today, and see how it still holds up. Dave Bickler (Budweiser real men of genius ads singer) and Jimi Jamison (Casey Kasem said he IS the voice of the 80's) as singers? Frankie Sullivan guitar riffs/solos/songwriting. Jim Peterik keyboard/piano/songwriting. Play Surivor Silver Girl and tell me they were not underrated.
