Disclaimer: The videos posted below are the best available on YouTube. In a few cases, the original video was unavailable for imbed and I had to go with a "knock-off," like one showing just the album cover, or lyrics. At least one has a minor error in the lyrics, sharp eyes & ears will spot it easily. In some cases, & this is true of the "cut" list, also, a song was chosen as representative of several songs by that artist: e.g. Journey, Def Leppard, and darn near half of everything Foreigner ever released as singles!
This is my Top Ten Songs of the 1980s list, otherwise known as The Reason I Have High Frequency Hearing Loss!
One Night in Bangkok - Murray Head
Shadows of the Night - Pat Benatar
Urgent - Foreigner
Photograph - Def Leppard
Mr. Roboto - Styx
Who's Crying Now - Journey
Subdivisions - Rush
Against All Odds - Phil Collins
And the Number One Song of the 1980S.....
Twilight Zone - Golden Earring
This has been a fun project! Thanks for all who followed along & offered suggestions as the list took shape!
