10 (+1) Songs That Scream 1980s

1980smusicI recently was looking at a Rolling Stone magazine and recognized none of the singers or their songs.  I haven’t been into new/recent music for a long time.  The last CD I bought was from a long time ago.  I think many of the artists on the radio sound the same today.  Since I grew up in the 1980s and my first concert was Neil Diamond (boy, was that fun), I decided to include a popular song for each year from 1980 to 1989.  There’s some good ones (cheesy in all their glory and lyrics) in here.  I included videos, but we’ll see how long they stay up.

1980 had Funkytown by Lipps Inc

1981 had The Tide is High by Blondie

1982 had Ebony and Ivory by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder

1983 had Toto by Africa

1984 had Caribbean Queen by Billy Ocean (and Loverboy too)

1985 had We Built This City by Starship

1986 had Kryie by Mr. Mister

1987 had Faith by George Michael

1988 had Foolish Beat by Debbie Gibson

1989 had Cold Hearted by Paula Abdul
