I love that track.

Michael Jackson's early stuff, Dire Straits, Queen (or at least some of their songs).

Tears for Fears--Shout
Tears for Fears--The Seeds of Love
INXS--Need You Tonight
The Go-Go's--Vacation
The Go-Go's--This Town
The Go-Go's--We Got the Beat
The Go-Go's--Our Lips Are Sealed

Those are just off the top of my head. I'll post more when I think of them.

I Love Rock And Roll by Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
and
I Love Rocky Road by Weird Al Yankovic
teehee

The singer with the most mind-blowing performances-next to Michael Jackson-was Robert Palmer.
HOW this little guy belted 'em out like a 300 lb mariachi STILL baffles me! And,no, there was no Vanilli extract involved.

I found my Business As Usual CD. Every track is great! Down Under,Underground,Be Good Johnny...!

These groups and singers made music that got under your skin,it was MIND ALTERING...

I love me some 80s music but I would have a hard time picking just one favorite song. As a teenager I loved "Come On Eileen" by Dexys Midnight Runner but I've grown out of it. I also like some Men At Work, bought their CD because of my interest in "Down Under". I like "867-5309/Jenny" by Tommy Tutone.

More on Weird Al

'There in a petrie dish late 1 night,they took a donor body's cell and fertilized a human egg,and so I say...I THINK I'M A CLONE NOW'


He's funny,hip,and clever. He came out in the 80s with parodies of some of the hottest songs,and his style is still unchanged. He starts with pop tude,then adds the cows,sheep,and kazoos! 'All my chromosones are hand-me-downs...'

I love SO many songs from the 80's. I was born in the 80's so my friends will often poke fun at my taste in music but I just love 80's (and 70's and some 60's) music.

Two of my favourites are Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield and Summer of 69 - Bryan Adams.
