Super Power Mega Uber 80'S!!!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by MikeyFingers, Feb 23, 2008.


  1. For reasons I can't fully understand, I'm making a CD of the cheesiest most epic super 80's love songs ever made. I need some suggestions to fill the 80 minute CD.
    I'm thinking stuff along the lines of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up", or "Hungry Eyes" from Dirty Dancing. That kinda stuff.
    Fire away, best of the worst.

  7. Remember, super cheesey powerful LOVE songs! Safety Dance is OK because of it's epicness.
    What's that one called? From Dirty Dancing, "I...had..the time of my liiiifffe...and I owe it all to yooouuuu."

    Very true. And on the topic of hilarious videos for cheesy 80's Love Songs:

    Lionel Richie - Hello


    My favorite part is the sculpture at the end that looks nothing like him.

    Open Arms by Journey.

    Babe by Styx. A fun thing to do with this song is substitute the "you" with "me", and vice versa.

    "You know it's MEEEEEEEE, babe"

    If You Leave - OMD

    Against All Odds - Phil Collins

    Take On Me - aha

    "Drive" by The Cars, "Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx, "All Right" by Christopher Cross and "Making Love out of Nothing at All" by Air Supply can't be out of an 80's compilation IMO.
     
  17. +1 Good ones.

    Like "Safety Dance", another 80's song that, while not a love song, is too awesome to not include.

    Electric Avenue

    Oh, and how about Steve Perry's "Oh Sherrie" (I like this song so much, BTW) and Wham's "Careless Whisper"? Don Henley's "The Boys Of Summer" is so eighties, too.
     
  20. These came to my mind.

    Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"


    ...oh god, some of those are just so cheesy...
