Worst '80s Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Eyes Without a Face - Billy Idol Eyes Without a Face - Billy Idol

I always (intentionally) mis-hear these lyrics as 'Arse About Face'. It's better that way.

28 Thriller - Michael Jackson Thriller - Michael Jackson

One of the most overrated songs of all time. Michael Jackson is one of my favorite musical artists ever. This is my least favorite song from him.

Over produced video, incessant radio play and a question mark to a lot of his fans

It sucks... Why it so overrated?

29 Never Surrender - Corey Hart Never Surrender - Corey Hart

This song should be way higher. This is one of the many bad songs the 80s had. - TheMusicNerd

30 I Just Called to Say I Love You - Stevie Wonder I Just Called to Say I Love You - Stevie Wonder

Hate this song. Hated it when it was new and hate it even more now. "I just called to say.. I'm Gaay".

31 Ride On Time - Black Box Ride On Time - Black Box
32 Bad - Michael Jackson Bad - Michael Jackson

By the way you qaz9999 he is amazing and most influential artist of all time. Bad is a funk song. You may not like it. But that doesn't means he sucks, He rocks

Why is this here? This song is great.

Just to clarify:
The most influential artist of all time?
THE Beatles
The biggest-selling artist of all time?
THE Beatles
Most #1's of all time?
THE Beatles
Most successful musicians of all time?
THE Beatles
Thanks for your time.

This is real bad...

He went really downhill in the 80s. - gemcloben

I love the Pet Shop Boys. I think they always have, and always will produce great music.
