    The eightees were full of great music. One of my guilty pleasures is flock of seagulls. Just brings me back to happier times.

  3. My guilty pleasure is abba but i know that's more 70's than 80's.

    btw, mister x, let's move the music subforum and combine it with movies/etc  and let's just call that offtopic. These kinds of subforums usually lay unused. I'd like to condense the space more so there's less browsing. Will remove this text later.

  4. great list, thanks for posting those. haha ya im a huge we are the world fan! back when people were still doing cool stuff...and what an amazing collaboration. watched a documentary on the making of we are the world...check it out if you get a chance. ya love mj, still takes me back...human nature and the girl is mine are two of my favs ;) so much great 80s, also love tears for fears and depeche mode. ill have to browse these vids while smetching

    Note to self: finish the list

    if you see any you'd like to see any that aren't listed yet, link me to it and i'll find a corresponding spot on the list. I'm trying hard to rate them accordingly.

    Edit: for reference

    Recently saw an episode of Family Matters with New Edition on it and it reminded me of their earlier music.
    I am baffled how they sang so high in this song. What did their speaking voices sound like?
