Favorite Music of the 1980s?

This is just a general discussion thread, for everything music related from 1980 - 1989. Who were / are your favorite bands, singers, videos, etc., and why?

Looking back after so many years, one of my faves was "Opposites Attract" by Paula Abdul; its still funny and inventive.

My favorite track off Point of Entry (although the whole thing is fantastic) We used to play it over and over. The opening riff is just an all-time monster.

I liked The Firm, Van Hagar, first two Plant albums, Roxy Music Avalon. Motels had some pretty good songs.

Never seem to tire of this one, probably my favorite song of the decade.

Oh, and this one too. The body on this woman did a number on a 12-year-old Hokeydude in 1983... catchy song as well.

I wouldn't know where to begin with this question. Most of my favourite music is from the '80s.

The Plimsouls, most underrated band of the 80s in my opinion.

One of the greatest metal epics of the 80s by far:
