The song starts at 0:39 for this one:

Bruce Springsteen – Glory Days (1985)

Two from Dire Straits:

The next one sparked controversy in Canada:

Dire Straits – Money For Nothing (1985)

Yup, some guy got offended at what he called “anti-gay inflammatory lyrics”. Since then, the song in its original version is banned form airing on the radio…

Raise the volume on this one! The reverberation is awesome!

Mr. Mister – Kyrie (1985)

Mr. Mister – Broken Wings (1985)

Don’t skip the intro… too funny! (if you must then the song starts at 1:08)

Loverboy – Lovin’ Every Minute of It (1985)

A great track from little known Montreal Québec band “The Box”:

The Box – L’Affaire Dumoutier (Say to Me) (1985)

Next, turn it up for one of the most iconic music videos from the ’80s and awesome song:

A-Ha – Take on Me (1985)

Thanks to the Beverly Hills Ninja (1997) movie, I was able to reunite with a long lost ’80s song:

Of course, we all remember the movies that brought us great soundtracks with the likes of:
