Wolfgang issued a challenge: List our 10 favorite 80's songs and movies. Since I am having a bit of a hard time figuring out what movies to list, I am just going to list my favorite 80's songs for now. Here they are, in random order:
1- One night in Bangkok, Murray Head
2- Shattered Dreams, Johny Hates Jazz
3- Higher Love, Steve Winwood.
4- Something About You, Level 42
5- With or without you, U2
6- King of Pain, The Police
7- Total Eclipse of the Heart, Bonnie Tyler
8- What's Love got to do with it, Tina Turner
9- Love My Way, Psychedelic Furs
10- I Melt With You, Modern English
11- Little Red Corvette, Prince
12- Enjoy the Silence, Depeche Mode
13- Don't you want me, Human League
14- Hungry like the Wolf, Duran Duran
15- Stand Back, Stevie Nicks
16- Twilight Zone, Golden Earring
17- The Look of Love, ABC
18- Kiss and Tell, Bryan Ferry
19- Mandinka, Sinead O'Connor
20- Rock the Casbah, The Clash
This post was updated to list 20 songs instead of the original 10 I had put down. Also, since my enjoyment of these songs was inextricably related to watching the vidoes on MTV, I went ahead and linked to videos on YouTube/MySpace.
p.s. I had totally forgotten about them when I made the list, but I also loved Love Stinks by J Geils Band and Jenny (867-5309) by Tommy Tutone.
