    School dances: "Can't Fight This Feeling" - Reo Speedwagon

    "Sweet Child o' Mine" - played everywhere I went, all the time, for the entire summer of 1988.

    I loved Jokerman, haven’t heard that song in years.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    3 song tie so I’m breaking the rule.

    Ashes to Ashes - Bowie. Heavy Influenced 80s alternative.

    One Tree Hill - U2.

    Fight the Power - Public Enemy

    Hard to not pick Talking Heads 3 big songs from Remain In Light. Crosseyed and Painless. The Great Curve.

    Re: Best 80ís Song

    '80' was all about too many drugs, so I'll go with...


    "Smuggler's Blues"

    Everybody was moving product back then. Even Bill Clinton's brother was moving lots of cocaine from Florida to Arkansas.

    "You Belong to the City" also works for me for the '80's. The "A"-side to "Smuggler's Blues" "B"-side.

    I think it's on my current playlist. I'm currently loaded up on Dylan, including his new album. "Things Have Changed" is doing heavy work right now.

    This is all assuming one can remember the '80's.
