5 Iconic Songs From The ’80’s That You’ve TOTALLY Missed

5 Iconic Songs From The ’80’s That You’ve TOTALLY Missed. So, I was noodling around on iTunes the other day, trying to find some of my favorites from the ’80’s. The Todd and I hosted an “80’s Night” fundraiser, and hearing all that wonderful cold, impersonal synthopop got me yearning for my new-wave favorites from my youth. I couldn’t find some of them, so I started digging. Seriously, I think these 5 songs pretty much represented the entire decade for me. Which 5 songs from the 80’s summed up everything about you?

Industry – State of the Nation 1984


Underworld – Underneath the Radar  1988


Black – Everything’s Coming Up Roses  1987


Duran Duran – The Reflex  1981


Depeche Mode – Everything Counts  1983


PLUS! My extra special bonus track:

The Pajama Slave Dancers – Train Wreck On Prom Night  1986

Even if you don’t fall madly in love with the sheer Awesome of the name “Pajama Slave Dancers,” the tune Train Wreck on Prom Night will make you a fan, with the chorus that laments, “why didn’t we take the BUS???”
