    LOL you have quite a few....
    Well, I can't say what my fav 80's songs were because (a) most of them all sound the same IMO and (b) I was in nappies then :smile:
    Let's embrace the point of no return.

    I was really small when the 80's were.
    I still liked a few songs though:

    Belinda Carlisle-Heaven Is A Place On Earth
    Circles In The Sand

    Michael Jackson-Beat It
    Bad
    These foolish games are tearing me apart

    My CHART

    Never Trust a Stranger (or something) by Kim Wilde - I was a fan when about 10 years old , Europe - Final Countdown (and their album), Milli Vannilli "Girl You Know It's True", some Phil Collins songs, Sandra (ah yes Eurodance ruled!), Kate Bush and New Kids On The Block! I was also totally addicted to "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" by Whitney...

    I'm gonna post slightly off topic here. I couldn't possibly list my favourite songs of the 80s - it's so difficult to choose but born 11/MAR/1981, I am also a true 80's child, and so I'll list the first pop songs I liked

    1) Los Lobos - La Bamba
    2) Europe - The Final Countdown
    3) Sinitta - Toy Boy

    Something tells me I put them in on another post as well, but I can't remember

    I have to totally agree with Muzikritik & Jami with the 2 songs from Janet Jackson called "Rhythum Nation" & "What have youdone for me lately?" which I really love that song cuz I love the line in it which she says "You've got to be thankful for the little things...but little things are always what you seem to give!" LOL now that's what I call a kick a** Janet!!!
    "Hey, You can call me obsessed, crazy, or whatever but in my eyes...Janet Jackson is an Icon to me." -K.G.

    As embarrassing as this is, I had the two Kylie Minogue albums, she had out in the 80's. 'Kylie' & 'Enjoy Yourself', on record, my excuse is that I was 5 or 6, but according to my parents I loved them! :eekps:
    Anyway these are my favs:
    Kylie - 'Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi'
    Sade - 'The Sweetest Taboo'
    Michael Jackson - 'Leave Me Alone'
    Janet Jackson - 'Nasty' & 'Rhythm Nation'
    Black Box - 'Ride On Time'
    Chaka Khan - 'I Feel For You'
    Madonna - 'Cherish'
    LL Cool J - 'I Need Love'
    Kim Wilde - 'You Keep Me Hangin' On'
    Luther Vandross - 'Never Too Much'
    Whitney Houston - 'So Emotional'

    I'm sure there's more than that, just can't think of anything else.
