  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

    Rick Astley
    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.
