Yes, a very decisive #1 Tim. And a good Top Ten - something for (almost) everyone - even a song from the 'dreaded' 80s. :)

I think I have several 80's songs in my PTT :D and some great music did come out in the 80's like:

Call Me, Blondie

Another Brick In The Wall, Pink Floyd

Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Queen

Against The Wind, Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band

Then of course songs like these had to ruin at all and give the 80's a bad name :crazy:

Do That To Me One More Time, Captain and Tennille

Please Don't Go, K.C. and The Sunshine Band

Him, Rupert Holmes

She's Out Of My Life, Michael Jackson

The poor 80's took a terrible blow with stuff like that playin' on the airwaves. That Jackson tune always made feel nauseated :laughing:

LOL..Lea..me and hubby were talkin' about the 80's the other day...some song came on the radio and he said "what year was this song, sounds like an 80's tune"...I said I don't know, the 80's were all a blur to me....He said "Um dear, we got married in '81.... :P

( I meant as in the music ) :laughing:

Lea I'm rapt in most of the 80s Pop Songs - except some wussy boy bands (although I like Culture Club) and 'House Music'.

I can never get 80s Pop Songs into the Ten. Every Breath You Take just snuck in, and it's one of the best. Even the Rappers agree.

Most of our Kids were a bit older then, so I used to sit around and watch the Australian Video Top 50 (Rage) with them on Saturday mornings

when I could. I probably know more 80s Pop songs than 70s !
