Oh yeah, the 80's defines my youth. I just cannot dislike music from that era.

I'm going to offer...

HEY, YOU, THE ROCKSTEADY CREW. Perhaps not a classic for most people, but this song is part of my earliest memories of music.

Raf - Self Control is the original version.

Laura Branigan version is a cover.
and was more successful than the original ..

EDIT:
probably because I've been used to it since the 80s but I think the Raf version is better

Well, I hope you have a less syncopated way of typing on your own keyboard .

Around my Dream (1985), this also is a case of the reprise selling better than the original (from an Italian singer whose name is Silver Pozzoli). In practice, it's a little more complicated (song was reissued later on by him for discos or something like that) but anyway.

Exactly how we imagine Shooney...

As for RAF version, for me used to Branigan's version it sounds like Remix.

Another Italian singer - Gazebo...

France...

Alizee did nicely her version, no that is not part of 80s...

And best known Austrian from 80's, also late, Falco...

Almost like Eurosong contest for 80 disco.

Not much from east Europe was played... at least nothing that I remember that becomes hit outside of its own country...


If I got some countries wrong, sorry, it is not intentional...

While Austria is east of France, I would not consider it East European country.


I don't remember Klaus Nomi at all.

Little bit of rock and USA...

We went with kids (9 and 13 at the time) on his concert last year and it was crazy good. At the end of concert some folks close to us told my kids that they had no idea how lucky they were. (not just for missing school that and following day ) I think that for them was more interesting that my kids knew song and were quite loud singing them.


And something that was hunting 80s....

Thank you all for additions, working on creating good 80's hit playlist.

This is hands down my favorite song from Bon Jovi :

Don't forget to include in your list few Rod Stewart and ZZ Top hits of that decade. I made a 80s list myself a few years back. I may disclose its content in PM if you're interested.

There are a few bands from that era which I like a very limited output of, such as Europe with Final Countdown, Berlin with Take My Breath Away. I am afraid Bon Jovi falls into that category for me, e.q. Keep the Faith was a big hit in France, but I never liked it, though I will admit they are a notch above Europe or Bryan Adams. Same (to some extend) with hugely popular 80's bands such as Tears for Fears, Simply Red, Supertramp, Pet Shop Boys, Aha, Toto I usually pick up two and three songs at best from each of them for my playlists, don't need the whole shebang.

So why no Men Without Pants.....errrr..... Men Without Hats and the Safety Dance

Also Queensryche with Silent Lucidity, this is a tune that my mother actually liked.

Then there is Soundgarden with Black Hole Sun.
