Top Ten Thursday - 80s Songs

Welcome to Top Ten Thursday!




Today we're talking about the Top Ten songs from the 80s

As I was a teenager in the 80s I strongly believe that his was by far the best decade where music is concerned, and it's gonna be so hard to pick only 10.

I started out with a shortlist of 50+ songs and tried to think about ways to narrow it down... when... life happened. My coworker is on vacation, so this part-time working mom is supposed to do both jobs, and it's been really busy at the office, so I have to keep this short. I went for movie themes!  
  1. Irene Cara, What a Feeling (Flashdance)
  2. John Parr, St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)
  3. Tina Turner,  We Don't Need Another Hero (Madmax)
  4. Harold Faltermeyer, Axel F (Beverly Hills Cop)
  5. Huey Lewis & the News, the Power of Love (Back to the Future)
  6. Kenny Loggins, Footloose
  7. Ghostbusters - who are you gonna call?
  8. Berlin, Take my Breath away (Top Gun)
  9. Jennifer Grey, Time of my Life (Dirty Dancing)
  10. Bee Gees, Stayin' Alive



I know this list can not do justice to all the awesome artists and songs out there... I mean, Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna and Elton John aren't even on the list! Toto, ELO, Genesis, Foreigner, Kool and the Gang, WHAM, Pet Shop Boys to name just a few others...
