    Favorite 80s Tunes

    It's hard for me to list just one, but I'd go with The Pogues, "A pair of brown eyes."

    Great topic! Got to give some love to The Pixies. And The Smiths. And Dexy's Midnight Runners.

    Re: Favorite 80s Tunes

    So many to choose from. Great calls so far on the thread. What about "Jack and Diane" from John Cougar (I don't think he had added the Mellencamp yet and I know he had not scrapped the Cougar yet).



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Any early R.E.M. as well...So. Central Rain comes to mind. Anyone else see them in C.Y. Stephens in the mid 80's?

    "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" is a much better song! One of the pleasures of having young kids is "spinning tall tales" about what you did in your youth. My kids are 12, 11 & 10, and until recently I had them convinced that I was the lead singer for Night Ranger (Jack Blades) until I left the band to marry their mother!

    Nobody has yet mentioned one of my '80's favorites, LOVERBOY! I saw them at the Mississippi Queen in probably 1979, and they were back headlining Hilton (with opening act Donnie Iris) in either '81 or '82. DOA...

    I *heart* R.E.M. It's later, but "Strange Currencies" was our first dance at our wedding.

    Loverboy!! Awesome - good pull!

    They kept playing "The Final Countdown" by Europe at the hockey game on Friday night - anyone remember what movie that's from?

    Wink Re: Favorite 80s Tunes

    I still love MTV's "top five at five" in the 1984-85 era, which almost always included:

    Simply Irresistible - Robert Palmer
    Home Sweet Home - Motley Crew, and
    Girlschool - Britny Fox

    For the metalheads in the crowd, how about "Holy Diver" by Ronnie James Deo and "The Lumberjack Song" by Jesse James Dupree...

    For the chicks in the crowd, there's "Always Love You" by Whitney and anything by Michael Jackson, DeBarge or Ready for the World (No Parkin' Baby, No Parkin' on the Dance Floor...)

    Re: Favorite 80s Tunes

    "Stranger in Town" by Toto
    Any song off of Pink Floyd's 'Momentary Lapse of reason' album
    Dead Milkmen's "Punk Rock Girl"
    'Time after Time' from Cyndi Lauper
    'Total Eclipse of the Heart' by Bonnie Tyler
    'Jump' by Van Halen
    'Pour some sugar on me' Def Leppard
    'The Flame' by Cheap Trick
    'Summer of '69' by Bryan Adams
    More than a few of the songs off of Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction album

    And I end this with 'I wanna be Sedated' by the Ramones.

    This list could go on and on.

    I think we are all forgetting the great Rick Astley. "Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down..."
