    It's gotta be either "Don't stop believing" Journey or "Here I go again on my own" Whitesnake...

    But there are just so many to choose from...

    Half my iTunes library is from the 80s, but "How soon is now?" by The Smiths seems to be a continual favourite.

    South Mississippi y'all, near the water!
    I don't know if I can answer that. There's way too much to choose from. Your Smith's tune is great dynamicv. And I love that whole Tears for Fears CD redAPPLE. I think that was one of my first CDs. U2 had tons of great music in the 80s. And The Police is still one of my favorite bands (saw them twice). THEN there's the genre of PFunk: Parlaiment, Bootsy, George Clinton. And Prince had several releases in the 80s (saw him once). 10,000 Maniacs (saw them once) still ring true to my heart. My first concerts were Peter Frampton, Earth, Wind and Fire, and the Commodores. A friend got me hooked on R.E.M. (saw them once). The Smithereens' "Especially for You" CD came out, too (saw them three times).

    I cannot answer this question. But, thanks for the flashback! :D :D

    I couldn't answer it!

    Favourite artists that were active in the 80s:

    Minor Threat
    Nitzer Ebb
    Einstürzende Neubauten
    Iron Maiden
    Dead Kennedys
    Kate Bush
    Killing Joke

    That's just what springs to mind...
    Even picking one song from that list would be damned tricky...
