  1. Anything by Bananarama or Kylie Minogue in the eighties has my vote!
    But let’s say “Venus” from Bananarama and “Loca Motion” from Kylie.

    1989 – Cyndi Lauper – I Drove All Night!
    1987 – Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody
    1989 – The Bangles – Eternal Flame
    1986 The Bangles – Walk Like An Egyptian
    1986 The Bangles – Manic Monday
    1985 – Gloria Estafan/Miami Sound Machine – Bad Bad Boy
    1986 – Alisha – Do You Dream About Me?
    Gwen Guthrie – Ain’t Nothing Going On But The Rent

    I might be wrong about some of the years…

    Micheal Jackson – The Way You Make Me Feel
    Paula Abdul – Straight Up
    Kim Wilde – You Keep Me Hanging On

    To be honest…I could be at it all day, because there are so many

    Tiffany
    Sanita
    Rick Astley
    INXS
    Donna Summer

    …there are some eighties bands that I have heard too much of – you know the songs that have been played a million times on the radio. But anything eighties that is not overplayed is great.
