Best of 80's Pop - Weekend Playlist

Best of 80's Pop - Weekend Playlist

80's was the brightest point for Pop culture to boom and the decade yielded some of the greatest pop stars in history for example Michael Jackson, Madonna etc. The era produced some of the finest vocal representation in a song and the music that sway you away.

These tunes, some of the best party songs ever, stand the test of time and still played over radio and during Karoake nights. So buff up your hair, prep your dance routine, and get ready to wear your heart on your shoulder pads—here are the best of ’80s Pop songs ever made.

1. “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston
The classic by Witney Houston. Nobody can match the jam neither in terms of vocals and dance routine. Her soaring vocals and peppy music is a hit on the dancefloor. A mega-hit for karoake nights.

2. “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper
"Girls Just Want to Have Fun" was originally penned and sung by Robert Hazard in 1979, but it didn't become a worldwide hit until Cyndi Lauper reclaimed—and rewrote—the song for the ladies in 1983. It established Lauper as a playful pop phenom and became a global feminist anthem, inviting women everywhere to step out from under society's expectations and walk in the sun.

3. “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler
The raspy voice of the Welsh singer turned this 1983 epic ballad into a major hit. The chorus so powerful that even the soul of Freddie Mercury will think twice before taking on the song. 

4. "Take On Me" by A-ha
The first and biggest hit by the Norwegian electropop trio A-ha, “Take On Me,” rose to international popularity in 1985. “Take On Me” is also distinguished by Harket’s improbably octave-spanning vocals, whose seeming effortlessness has inspired countless screeching karaoke wipeouts.
5. "Into the Groove" by Madonna
A song so quintessentially ’80s, — this popgasm is one of our personal favorite. Years after its 1985 release, Madge she said that she felt like a dork singing it. Fine, Madge, but you can't have looked as dorky as the millions of us who sang it into our hairbrushes.
