    Re: Worst Song of the 80's....

    Some defense for some of the tunes named in the thread:

    "I Will Follow" - I'm no great lover of U2, but come on, it was the opening act of the biggest band to emerge from the decade and it's got that great ringing guitar that didn't sound like anything else you'd heard up until that moment in time.

    "She Blinded Me With Science" and "Der Kommisar" - Again, synth was never my thing, but those could be on the short list of best synth tunes ever made. I understand not liking a genre, but at least pick the actual bad stuff from it.

    "Sunglasses at Night" - It's a catchy tune. I can tap my toe to it. Why would I wear sunglasses at night? I don't know either, but it's a way better tune than Hart's follow up "Never Surrender".

    "Cherry Pie" - Guilty pleasure though I recognize it's not a good song. That said, it's still the BEST song Warrant ever made.

    "Wishing Well" - In a decade of soulless soul, programmed rhythm and pastel blues, Terrence Trent D'Arby managed to cut a tune with some actual soul heft to it. The man deserves a medal for it.

    Count me as another vote for "We Built This City". There's a radio station in Danbury, CT (I-95 for anyone interested in self-inflicted torment) that still plays it in heavy rotation with Triumph's "Magic Power" (another claw your eyes out tune).

    If She Blinded Me With Science is one of the best synth tunes ever I sure don't want to hear the bad stuff.

    Triumph. ha.

    The world is full of compromise, and infinite red tape
    But the music's got the magic, it's your one chance for escape
    So turn me on - turn me up - it's your turn to dream
    A little magic power makes it better than it seems

    As evidence, I submit:

    See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
    Heads turning as the lights flashing out it's so bright
    Then walk right out to the fourline track
    There's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
    And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine
    Girls on film, girls on film, girls on film, girls on film

    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    In miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
    The diving man's coming up for air cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
    And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

    Girls on film (two minutes later), girls on film
    Girls on film (got your picture), girls on film

    Wider baby smiling you just made a million
    Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
    Take one last glimpse into the night I'm touching close I'm holding bright, holding tight
    Give me shudders in a whisper take me up till I'm shooting a star

    Girls on film (she's more than a lady), girls on film
    Girls on film (two minutes later), girls on film
    Girls on film (see you together), girls on film
    Girls on film (see you later), girls on film
    Girls on film (what ya doing), girls on film
    Sure... but the video was something else... [the uncut version]!
