The 1980s was a decade which featured a very wide variety of music. The charts in the 80s featured disco, soft rock, heavy rock, new romantics, manufactured pop, punk, rap and much more. The 1980s was also when creating music videos to accompany the song became normal, and many of these were very flamboyant as bands tried to outdo each other.
Here I present some of the great 80s songs that made a lasting impression on me. I have featured six music videos from each year of the 1980s for you to watch and created links to the albums these songs are from so that you can listen to some of your old favourites.
