God!, here’s a question I can never answer!  @-@, there’s too many to choose from, but I think the ones I remember hearing while on holiday in North Wales while I was 11/12 years old and at my peak in the process of learning about lighting, (North Wales was still on mercury and SO lanterns back in the 80s), and it was interesting to see all the older stuff than what we had in and around our town.

Much like @AngryHorse, I'm kinda in the same boat regarding this question. For me as well, this is a tough question to answer. I have no
specific favorite/number one favorite song. But... two people that have legitimately ROCKED my life because of their incredible music,
backed up by their absolutely incredible vocals... American and British legends... Michael Jackson and Phil Collins. Now THAT is easy for
me to say. These songs are a part of what molded me into who I am today: Michael Jackson: Thriller, Beat It, and Billie Jean, as probably expected.
Three of his main, most legendary songs. Beat It is actually my favorite of the three, and it really changed the game, because... to me, the
lyrics were... ehh... not really a fan of the lyrics... BUT THE MUSIC AND THE VOCALS... some of the greatest I have ever heard. That includes
the Guitar Solo before the final chorus. Capitalized for a reason... one of the best Guitar Solos I have ever heard.
Embarrassing to admit, but Beat It actually managed to make me cry when I was a kid... when I was 4 or maybe 5 years old. The eerie music with
the electronic voices in the background, during the "showing how funky, strong is your fight, it doesn't matter..." lines of the chorus. That,
in combination with the awesome repetitive Guitar in the background. For a while there, I was actually afraid of that song, more so than Thriller.
Thriller and Billie Jean are my additional favorites, more because of the lyrics than the music... that being said, both songs have some of
the greatest music I have ever heard as well, easily.
Phil Collins: In The Air Tonight... I think that one should be expected as well for real. :'-) That song has some of the greatest vocals I have
ever heard in my life as well, and the rhythm/music is legendary. The lyrics HIT HARD with that song as well. So much so to the point where it made
me laugh as a kid, starting from the first verse... "Well if you told me you were drowning... I would not lend a hand..." :'-)
Take Me Home is another major favorite of mine from Phil Collins. That song played on the radio and actually shut my family up during a road trip,
when I was a kid. That includes my little sister. Even SHE shut up for that song. Very rare moment, and that helped seal the deal.
I Don't Care Anymore and Take A Look At Me Now... also among the lists of my favorites by him. I think I've got more favorites from Phil, but I'm
not sure they were made in the 80's.
Sorry for not providing one specific song, but it's tough!! Musical Legends of All Time revealed themselves many, many times in the 80's  8)

I've said it on another thread about this that was deleted by the OP  ???

My all time favourite from the 80's is Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits  :love:

I would post a link to it, but I would just start crying.  :'( :'( :'(

Every time I hear that track I think of my best friend, Shaun Husband. He was killed by a roadside bomb while he was in Iraq, in November 2005. :DeAtH:
Shaun was the closest person to being a brother to me than any blood relation will ever be. R.I.P Shaun, I love you and always will.  :love: :-* :love:

So sorry for your loss. I had a friend who died in a car crash in 2012 and we would listen to our favorite '80s bits!

The 80s were good, but let's not forget about the 70s, 60s, or 50s. Like The Ronettes, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, The Rolling Stones etc.
