Hey, I listen to a lot of corny 80's stuff and I assumed I'm not the only one on the site that does with PTA putting so much of it on his soundtracks. So, I wondered what some of your guys favorite songs from the decade were. I plan on downloading all of them...I want to get into some more of the stuff, I think it's awesome. So don't list bands please, just songs...only the best ones too if you can...just so I don't have to filter through the decent ones.

the thing that saved the eighties was Bruce Springsteen (i'm not talking about Dancing in the Dark)....also, the eighties goth-rock, Smiths, Cure, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen...bands that are huge influences in today's music.
the rumble of the train trails off to infinity, a place where no one goes anymore

JC, no not that one

I think albums like "A Kind of Magic" and "The Works" are pure satire...

And I think "The Miracle" and "Innuendo" are pretty good...
