If you loved music in the 80s, chances are it was because of this list of songs. They covered all of the topics that we were dying to hear about. Love, loss, dancing, you name it, these songs covered it! This list will propel you straight back to the year 1983, the year that these songs entered into our lives and stayed there for the remainder of the decade.
1. Every Breath You Take – The Police.
Never mind the creepy stalker lyrics, it happened to say a lot about relationships back then.
2. What A Feeling – Irene Cara.
This was the hit song to the movie, Flashdance. It was inspirational and it encouraged us to take chances.
3. Come On Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners.
This was a one hit wonder for this band but it was a great song that we all loved.
4. Beat It – Michael Jackson.
As if he didn’t have enough hits, this one went all the way to the top. It also inspired us to dance and fight.
5. Billie Jean – Michael Jackson.
Again, he had many hits and this one told a unique story about a lady who claimed that her kid was also his kid. He denied it.
