80s Pop Radio

K I was feeling old yesterday so made a 90s list, feeling even older now after that one list so deciding to fully embrace it and learn all whippersnappers on some mahfuckin 80's pop. This isnt a "Best of 80's" list, this is just the stuff that was on the radio in my earliest music listening years. Could have been much longer but so many of these bands aren't in the database.
1Michael Jackson
Thriller


Everyone should own this
2Prince
Purple Rain


NEVER WANTED TO BE YOUR.............WEEKEND LOVER
3U2
The Joshua Tree


I CANT LIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE....WITH OR WITHOOOOOOOOUT YOUU
4Fleetwood Mac
Tango in the Night


70's Mac was much better but they had some gems in the 80's, like BIG LOVE
5Don Henley
The End of the Innocence


The title track to this day destroys me, was a soundtrack to a pivotal moment in my life. The Hear of the Matter is also one of the best songs of the decade.
6John Mellencamp
American Fool
