Thread: Best & Worst Songs Of the '80s

  1. #1

    Default Best & Worst Songs Of the '80s

    What do you think they are?

    My picks for best are:

    Only A Lad ~ Oingo Boingo
    Institutionalized ~ Suicidal Tendencies
    Roxanne ~ The Police
    Add It Up ~ The Violent Femmes
    She Blinded Me With Science ~ Thomas Dolby
    David Bowie ~ Ashes To Ashes

    Worst:

    Too Shy ~ Kajagoogoo, who incidentally had one of the worst band names to go with the awful song.
    Mickey ~ Toni Basil

    I'm sure I'll think of others the moment I hit the "submit" button. LOL!

    Best:
    Styx, Show Me the Way
    The B-52's, Love Shack
    Robert Palmer, Addicted to Love
    Mike and the Mechanics, The Living Years


    Worst:
    Buggles, Video Killed the Radio Star
    M, Pop Musik
    Soft Cell, Tainted Love
    Wham!, Wake me up before you go-go

    The Wham! song almost sounds like kajagoogoo.

    There's too many to mention for both good and bad songs..i still think Joe Dolce was awful and is hard to be beaten in terms of worst song at that time..
    Tie a Yellow Ribbon got on your nerves after a while also...

    Diamond, I'm unfamiliar with Joe Dolce. Is that a song or a performer?
