Hard to argue with someones private tastes. Tons to love about this record but making “Each Breath You’re taking” #5? So many different great Police songs to select from. Maybe it’s a kind of songs for me that bought so overplayed I misplaced my appreciation for it. Identical goes for REMs “The One I really like” and “Orange Crush” Sooo many REM songs higher than these! Love seeing ‘Mexican Radio” here. Not a tune you see on loads of lists.

My favourite songs from the 80s are “I like” by Males with out Hats, which has superior instrumentation. They are additionally well-known for “Security Dance.” Rush additionally produced spectacular hits in the 80s, equivalent to “Witch hunt,” “Subdivisions,” and “Check for Echo.”

I simply wished to say that this is sort of a formidable list you’ve got got right here and i won’t argue the songs you have got.
I also know that such a list can by no means be complete, but
not even one tune from the Dire Straits?
I wouldn’t even say this or that one needed to go in but there ought to at the least be one.

Why isn’t “Man In the Mirror” on the list? A fantastic emotional track with gospel choir.
“Rock With You” is on “Off The Wall” album, it is not 80s track.
Where is Cindy Lauper? In your opinion is U2 nobody, for me is it “Billie Jean” ,wonderful bassline.

This could higher be titled Dj Functual’s favourite songs of the 80s in order of favouriteness. ‘Where the streets don’t have any identify’ wouldn’t even be my favourite u2 music. Sensibly, that can be ‘Within the identify of Love’. Like all ‘Best’ lists, this record is highly subjective and entirely a matter of non-public taste. How dare you place ‘Sweet Dreams are fabricated from this’ by Eurythmics so low in your record? Each the tune and it’s MTV video where ground-breaking. And is ‘Voyage Voyage’ by Desireless even on this dodgy list? Your number three is a whole piece of drivel: ‘Boys of Summer’ by Don Henley. What had been you smoking or sniffing when compiling this arbitrary compendium of what I consider an odd, annoying and impudent mixed-bag of each the most effective and probably the most forgettable of the 80s? I might challenge you to a duel with pistols at twenty paces if this was 1780.

I suggest including in your record “Camouflage” and “Drive She Stated” by Stan Ridgway. He made these about three or four years after leaving Wall of Voodoo. The primary tells about a soldier preventing in the Vietnam Warfare, and the second is a few cab driver who’s forced at gunpoint to assist a financial institution robber escape. It’s a real shame that Ridgway is so underrated–he is an incredible songwriter!

I am unable to imagine Tom Petty’s Free Fallin didn’t make the record, that music is a basic.
Additionally Metallica should have extra representation. Their earlier stuff may haven’t charted well, but those albums nonetheless sell nicely through in the present day.
