There is not a living person who wouldn’t continue singing if you started with Sweet dreams are made of this…

3. Total Eclipse of the Heart – Bonnie Tyler


It was Billboard’s #1 song of the year for 1983 and even nowadays this track is very popular 

One of the best overall songs of the 1980s.

I cringe whenever I hear this song. Tyler’s screaming is like finger nails on a chalkboard. It is my sincere wish is to never ever have to hear this song again. If you are paying to have this song piped in to any store please know that whenever I hear this song in a store I leave immediately.

A legend’s classic

This is NOT an 80s song!

6. Girls Just Want to Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper


I’m turning 14 in a few months and I heard this song when I was young so obviously I know at least one verse of the song but this is one of the greatest songs of the 80s and one of my favourite songs EVER! I want to listen to this song until I grow old. I hope this will be more famous than the songs now

Cyndi Lauper is the one of the greatest singer in 80s and she have many song that hits in all over the world like girls just want to have fun, time after time, true colors and many more

I just love this song, and Cyndi is the best singer in the 80’s although I was not born during this generation. But its my mom’s favorite song and artist.

Chris mark Dawson

8. Like a Virgin – Madonna


Madonna is so legendary, she is the first lady with a second single on this top ten

Great sexy songs


9. Heartbreaker – Pat Benatar


Tough and powerful voice but still wonderfully melodic.

Strong woman, Pat is 

Andy Dawson

Most likely a late 70s song but Pat Benatar is such a badass singer! Talk about that, how do I even add a comment?

Great pace.. progressive song from its time.

10. Running Up that Hill – Kate Bush


The greatest English rose in history of rock and pop a unique talent. This song is an epic by a true genius if you haven’t heard her or of her you haven’t yet lived

The whole album (The Hounds Of Love) was a master piece and the title track was even better than this, one of Kate’s finest moments.

So underestimated and her voice is so wonderful! I love Army Dreamer!

Kate Bush is a LEGEND.
