the Cult - She sells sanctuary
the Cure - A Forest

Well, I'll start with the most famous song of the 80's. This song has started the era of the 80's and has changed the history of music like no other song.

1) Michael Jackson - Billie Jean <- best and most important song of all-time
2) Michael Jackson - Beat It <- best rock song of all time
3) Michael Jackson - Thriller <- best music video of all time, it has changed the history of music
4) Michael Jackson - Dirty Diana
5) Michael Jackson - Bad

wow Voo...it seems you have the list in your hands....:lol: how do you know which songs were already nominated and were not?? do you look at everyone's posts??

Not everyone but I have a very good memory and I remember that Carlita was nominated INXS "Original Sin", Eden nominated a-ha "Take on me" and adee-gee Toto "Africa". I don't remember who nominated "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" but someone for sure on the 1st or 2nd page of this thread :p BTW I like very much both "Original Sin" & "Take on me" and "Africa" is for me one of the most disgusting (especially the clip) songs from the 80s, so it was easy to remembering :)

I'm a big fan of their early stuff when Brian Jones was still alive because he was a musical genious :worship:

Tracey Chapman's, Fast Car and R.E.M. - It's the End of The Word As We Know It should be in too. :rolls:
OMG how much I HATED that song :o

The Dire Straits are from the sixties :p
Actually they were formed in 1978 and are mostly an 80s band :p
