"live forever" is the best song of the 90's; "mr bright side" is the best of the 00's and "get lucky" is the best of the 20-teens.

What have you got for second place?! wink

Wrong. Blue Monday is the best 80's

Obsession is best, sorry.

Yabvu. I love Africa too but how can there be a number 1? It's not possible. Can't we have a top 3??

HoofWankingSpangleCunt Tue 06-Feb-18 20:35:20

You are all wrong. How Soon is Now was the best song of the 80s. Followed by Blue Monday grin

Sparklingbrook Tue 06-Feb-18 20:35:36

What, as in Toto? confused

SaucyJack Tue 06-Feb-18 20:36:19

I see your Africa, and I raise you Eye of the Tiger.

Flaming Lips 'Do You Realize?' Best song EVA.

The end.

No debate. Blue Monday.

Erasure's Give A Little Respect is a Top Ten 80's song for sure.

When Doves Cry is absolutely the best song of the 80's though.

There's so many great tunes of the 80s, I would find it hard to choose but 'Africa' is not on my list.

Brazenhussy0 Tue 06-Feb-18 20:41:08

Naaah. 'The Final Countdown' is quintessential 80s.

Love is a Battlefield by Pat Benatar. Totally forgot about it until Stranger Things series 2.

Smalltown Boy knocks them all into a cocked hat.

Off the top of my head

Simple Minds-All the Things she Said or Don't you Forget about Me.
Propaganda-Duel
Hall and Oates-Maneater
Marillion-Kayleigh

Or anything by Duran Duran. grin

Lulusmother Tue 06-Feb-18 20:45:57

Sorry. Blue Monday for me as well.

TheMathsTrainee Tue 06-Feb-18 20:46:19

Yabu the correct answer is

Don’t you want me Baby

JeReviens Tue 06-Feb-18 20:46:27

I agree with you OP.

How soon is now.

Rebeccaslicker Tue 06-Feb-18 20:47:41

Ok I can allow "blue Monday" at number 2...

We can end up with a brilliant playlist from this thread grin

BigSandyBalls2015 Tue 06-Feb-18 20:47:44

Also blue Monday
