Worst '80s Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Turbo Lover - Judas Priest

Weakest song they've ever made, not the Priest I know

This song is in Gran Turismo 3. It's so annoying.

42 Cruel Summer - Bananarama V 1 Comment
43 Two Tribes - Frankie Goes to Hollywood
44 All Night Long - Lionel Richie

This song is not bad. The only problem it has is being boring as hell. That's a problem that most of Lionel Richie's songs had. - TheMusicNerd

45 Agadoo - Black Lace
46 When Doves Cry - Prince
47 What About Love? - Heart
48 Tell It Like It Is - Heart
49 Love Shack - The B-52's

The most terrible thing to happen to music when I was in school, flat flat sharp! Really are they all tone deaf? And who wants to make love in a rusty old dirty shack? Yuck!

One of the most overplayed songs of the 80's. Maybe it was good the first couple of plays, but after hearing it 24+ times a day, every single day for more than a year, that's it, no more. GTFOH with this. If I never hear this song again in this lifetime, it will still be too soon!

This song needs to be higher. It is, in my opinion, a terrible song. The man talking on all the verses has a very annoying voice, and the chorus is really the only listenable and halfway interesting part of the song. Also, lyrics aren't impressive whatsoever either:
"Hop in my Chrysler, it's as big as a whale and it's about to set sail
I got me a car, like, it seats about 20
So come on and bring your jukebox money" - Element119

50 Never - Heart

Best of their crappy 80 s comeback

51 Nothin' At All - Heart
52 All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You - Heart

Those who think this is such romantic song, listen again. Her husband/boyfriend is infertile so she picks up a random dude who best case scenario is a teenager who's had a fight with his parent or step-parent thus ran or got thrown out of his house that night but most likely is some drunk or other addict. Underage and/or drug addicted though he may be, this guy nonetheless is actually fertile so she screws him and leaves him. We don't know how he felt about any of that but do know he eventually saw the kid and questioned the chick singing. And that's it. The song title is quite literal.

This is the most ridiculous song ever written. What insane amount of drugs could they have been taking when they wrote this?

Abolish any Heart recordings (sans "Alone") made between 1982 (with "This Man is Mine") and 1990 (when the downfall ended)! Who's with me?

53 Toy Soldiers - Martika
54 Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth
55 Word Up - Cameo V 1 Comment
56 Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi

Who put this on here it is one of the best

57 The Safety Dance - Men Without Hats

This song is the epitome as to why the 80's sucked and are overrated!

Hold on, man. I know this song is one of the worst songs ever, but the 80s were quite good. - TheMusicNerd

58 Money for Nothing - Dire Straits V 1 Comment
59 Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.

You gotta be kidding me. This is one of the best songs ever made. - TheMusicNerd
