Just wondering if we can put together a 80's music super thread? An interesting decade with it's own sound, unique groups and sadly soon to give way to the flood of hip hop and music star's cult of personality in the 90's and up to the present day.   

To kick off what may turn out to be an interesting thread. The first offering, though it was released in 79'  i think... it fits here as it seems the sound is indistinguishable too and as well having had set the tone for what was to follow.

The English new wave group - The Buggles - Video killed the radio star (1979)


The next one was a hit song with a weird video:

US group, Animotion - Obsession (1984)


Austria's late pop star Falco - Amadeus (1985) (So many damn versions out there i am not even sure if this is the original)

The UK's Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus (1989) (Unfortunately there is a short advertisement to get through, but the quality is superb. Interesting little fact: The song is based on Elvis and Priscilla Presley marriage and relationship)

Australia's INXS - New Sensation (1987), Also - Need You tonight (1987)

Also from Australia was "Midnight Oil" with the world wide success of their social/political commentary on Australia's aboriginal natives put to song, Beds Are Burning (1987/88)

Stopping right here to see if anyone is interested in adding too the multitude of popular 80's hit songs to this thread, or to let it die by lack of interest?

I've always loved funky songs of 80's with synth bass line.

Soundtracks of the 80's were also super cool -since there were so many amazing movies back then.

Flash Dance - 1983, She is a maniac.

Great contributions Dolphin and Hidden Face! Thumbs Up

I should have mentioned this before, but i didn't think about it then: One or two embeds here and there doesn't hurt, but let's try to link to them more instead of embedding every video direct to the forum. Sorry for my thoughtlessness. Embarrassed

This post has focuses on the early eighties.

Pink Floyd's - "Another Brick In The Wall" (1980)

Of course, it would not be a thread about smash hits from the eighties if MJ is left out. Michael Jackson's - "Beat it" (1983) With lyrics even! And also Michael Jackson' 1983 hit "Thriller" in HD.

Also from 1983 is The Police "Every Breath You Take" The link is a VEVO channel and has an add that can be skipped after five seconds.

Now for a little country, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton's 1983 duet hit "Islands In The Stream"

ABBA "When All Is Said and Done" (1981)
