    Fair enough....Anyway, here's a (barely) decade-appropriate Paula Abdul video:

    ^ Fun fact: Madonna herself gave Weird Al Yankovic the idea to parody that song.

    In 1986 I was transitioning from LP records to compact discs; this is from the first CD I bought on the day of its release:

    The movie Better off Dead had a decent sound track, and I always liked this song from Howard Jones, Like To Get To Know You Well

    Heck yea :techman:. I heard of that one on another forum I'm on.

    As for some of my faves...

    Anything from Heart, Michael Jackson (most of it), ZZ Top, Van Halen, Toto, The Bee Gees and much more generally get me up and dancing.

    Just went through the entire thread, it's like scrolling through my iTunes. A couple of my favorites that haven't been mentioned yet.

    I'm a huge fan of Big Pig, this is their lone hit. However I prefer Devil Song or Big Hotel
    [yt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBCcnazy88U[/yt]

    Who can forget the Proclaimers, THE song from Benny & Joon.
    [yt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbNlMtqrYS0[/yt]

    Bow Wow Wow and I Want Candy. How could you resist a girl with half shaven head.

    No matter where you go, there you are.
    Bow Wow Wow's front-woman was volcanically hot. I wonder whatever happened to them.

    The underrepresented thus far...

    Dead or Alive:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGNiXGX2nLU[/yt]

    Tears for Fears:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFsHSHE-iJQ[/yt]

    Pere Ubu:
    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieacH0vYQ_E[/yt]

    (I later discovered their Seventies stuff was actually better, but that album was my introduction.)

    The Pixies:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0P3lhrwio-M&list=PL0488F6103B08A22D[/yt]

    Kraftwerk (the band that inspired the nihilists' fictional "Autobahn" band from The Big Lebowski, really did most of their best work in the Seventies but nevertheless):

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQIYEPe6DWY[/yt]

    Goth-that-wasn't-The Smiths, for example Sisters of Mercy:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgifFdi8eio[/yt]

    ...Bauhaus:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKRJfIPiJGY[/yt]

    ...Skinny Puppy:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgGumPkrU7g[/yt]

    ...National Velvet (early favourites of Canada's answer to MTV, MuchMusic):

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_RdZ1GHOQU[/yt]

    ...and Siouxsie and the Banshees:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I3S8lPM6qM[/yt]

    ...and that's just scratching the surface. I can't remember if Joy Division was late Seventies or early Eighties, but they were the wellspring from which a lot of it flowed:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGMDBppWBOo[/yt]

    Can't forget "alternative music" from before the era when that was just another shitty corporate branding term; Stump:

    [yt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzkUKLDQWrM[/yt]

    Honorable mention to a massive contemporary retro movement that's doing Eighties synth music that the Eighties would have been proud of. Too much of it to mention here, but look up bands like Powerglove, Dynatron, and Lazerhawk (the one I'm listening to right now):

    What, no Elton John?

    One of Elton and Bernie's best songs, and one of the best story videos of the decade.

    Sir Elton's gayest video ever!
