why is it that knowing I have some songs to place here (and remember all the ones you listed) makes me feel old all of a sudden? used to be that the eighties weren't that far behind...

Take on Me is on of my all time favorite songs, and I think the best Music Video to date!

Little Nikki by Prince... not a 'nice' song, but another fave.  

Uhmm... I'm sure there are tons more, but that's all that's at the top of my head right now.

I'd love to list some songs here, but the 80's and 90's are all kind of a blur for me, so I wouldn't want to be hailing tunes from the wrong decade ...

How about bands?

The Cure
The Dead Milkmen
A-ha
Duran Duran
Curve (or was that the 90's?)
Pat Benatar
Oingo Boingo (freaks -- love 'em)
The Pet Shop Boys (though most of their good stuff was in the 90's)
Um ... others that pretty much all sounded or tried to sound like the above and looked something like this:



only with stranger colors in the hair and more makeup....

PRINCE  When Doves Cry, and Purple Rain, two of the greatest songs ever.

Loved all the ballads from the big rock bands like Guns N Roses, Posion, Arrowsmith,
Nazareth, etc. etc.
November Rain comes to mind first.
