Calling All 80's Music Afficionados And General Fans


I need your help. I'm in the final stretch of obtaining every 80's album I could think of / want, and in doing so, I intend on creating an ultimate decade playlist for myself. However, before I pat myself on the back and call it a job done, I want to know if I'm missing anything. What songs were undiscovered or forgotten gems that I should take a listen to and see if it's something that I "need" to have.

Now I know that this kind of question is a relative stab in the dark. I mean, just because someone likes something, doesn't mean someone else will. But, I'm open to trying new things. Especially when it comes to 80's era music. I will say that my music tastes sway more so towards weekly top forty's style tunes, you know, new wave, pop, rock. I didn't venture to far into country music of that era, nor rap, techno or funk. But again, I'm willing to give it a listen if you have a suggestion.

Do me a favor. If something comes to mind, throw it out there in the comment section. any genre from the era. Heck, even commercial jingles.

Thanks in advance!
