each one of these artist has more than one song i'd consider my '80s favorites', but here one favorite from each.

 

dead kennedys - moon over marin

 

black flag - damaged I

 

bad religion - i want to conquer the world

 

stevie ray vaughan - lenny

 

or did you mean the stereotypical 80s garbage that i hate, cuz i don't have a favorite one of those. okay...maybe hip to be square.

because it's favorite 80s song, and i was pretty sure that fresh fruit was released in 79, though i just looked it up and it was released in 80. i like holiday in cambodia more than california uber alles anyway. i never really listen to the studio version of either of those, just the live ones from mutiny on the bay. which is still live in the 80s. anyway, i love all of plastic surgery disasters, more than the other dead kennedys stuff, and i just tried to pick one song.

my favourite dead kennedys album... bah. i'd have to say fresh fruit or plastic surgery.

 

but the studio verison of california uber alles is fantastic. bleed for me is also a great song.

I super hate 80s music.

 

Is Sweet Dreams an 80's song?

 

or I love "Walking on Broken Glass" by Annie Lennox...

nasty boys - janet jackson

 

but that's only 'cause it would take 6 hours to list all the 80s hairband songs i'm having babies with, and then i'd have to list all the stevie nicks...

nirvana's bleach came out in '89, so love buzz qualifies as one of my favorites. i'm aware it's a cover song. i've never heard the original.

Dramarama - Anything, Anything

Eurythmics - Here Comes The Rain Again

Cheap Trick - Surrender

The Church - Under The Milky Way

The The - Kingdom Of Rain
