The Top Ten

1 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

Yeah! - DaringXx

Bon Jovi is the defining act of the 1980s hair metal scene. So energetic.

2 Another Brick In the Wall, Pt. 2 - Pink Floyd
3 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
4 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses
5 Jump - Van Halen
6 Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
7 Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys

I think it belongs much higher than 7. It's a very well produced and well written song, especially for its time. - Gg2000

8 Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones

I don't think a song like this would ever hit number one in this day and age. I'm impressed that the Stones were able to take such an uncommon genre like raga and make it accessible. - Gg2000

9 Money for Nothing - Dire Straits
10 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen

Sounds catchy.

The Contenders

11 Fame - David Bowie
12 You Give Love a Bad Name - Bon Jovi
13 She Loves You - The Beatles
14 Heaven - Bryan Adams

This is one of my favourite ballads ever. Bryan really shows his true potential here. - DaringXx

15 Love Bites - Def Leppard
16 Alone - Heart
17 Hello, I Love You - The Doors
18 I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2
19 I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith
20 Keep On Loving You - REO Speedwagon
21 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
22 Frankenstein - The Edgar Winter Group
23 American Woman - The Guess Who
24 Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Queen
25 These Dreams - Heart
26 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

Great song, but not rock.

The remix (which hit number one) is considered folk rock, which I think belongs on the list. - Gg2000

27 Hotel California - Eagles
28 Cats in the Cradle - Harry Chapin
29 Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon
30 Smooth - Santana
31 Light My Fire - The Doors
