    Best 80s Song

    What is the best song from the 1980s in your opinion?

    Before you list 27 songs - you can ONLY name one.

    I am going Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division.

    What say you?
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    In a Big Country by Big Country
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    Reading this question, the first song that came to mind for me was...

    Purple Rain by Prince
    Gratitude + Forgiveness = Happiness

    Tough call.

    The Soft Cell cover of "Tainted Love" immediately came to mind.

    Since I'm only allowed to mention one, that's the one I'd pick.

    But I'm open to be convinced otherwise.

    Cutting down to one was brutal, but I'll go with Billie Jean by Michael Jackson

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I’m going with “Where the Streets Have No Name.” Can’t go wrong with any of the first 3 tracks from The Joshua Tree.
