Top Ten of the 80s: The Final Countdown!

Ironically, that song didn't make the list anywhere!

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!

Number 10
One Night in Bangkok - Murray Head

Number 9
Shadows of the Night - Pat Benatar

Number 8
Urgent - Foreigner

Number 7
Photograph - Def Leppard

Number 6
Mr. Roboto - Styx

Number 5

Number 4
Who's Crying Now - Journey

Number 3
Subdivisions - Rush

Number 2
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!
