A personal favorite of mine, originally featured in the The Transformers: The Movie (1986):

Although this next one was released in 1985, I’m including it in this year since it gained much popularity from being featured in the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) movie!

Let’s finish 1986 with what is arguably the best song of the year:
