’80s MUSIC / 1980 (and late 1979) – A Good Start!

For this one, I will also be including some songs released in mid to late 1979 only because they actually played on the radio in 1980.

Ladies and Gentlemen, do enjoy the somewhat modest first year of the best decade of music EVER!


AC/DC – Hells Bells (1980)

AC/DC – You Shook Me All Night Long (1980)


Blondie – Call Me (1980)

Blondie – Atomic (1980)


Gary Numan – Cars (1979/80)


The song starts at 0:37

Journey – Any Way You Want It (1979/80)

… I originally thought that it was a woman who sang in this next one!

Loverboy – Turn Me Loose (1980)


Queen – Crazy Little Thing Called Love (1979/80)

Queen – Another One Bites the Dust (1980)


The Buggles – Video Killed the Radio Star (1979/80)


J. Geils Band – Love Stinks (1980)


The Romantics – What I like About You (1979/80)


Pink Floyd – Another Brick in the Wall (1979/80)

…way to get a new generation to defy school authority!


Kool & the Gang – Celebration (1980)


REO Speedwagon – Keep On Loving You (1980)


This next one is too hilarious to pass up…

Sheena Easton – Morning Train (9 to 5) (1980/81)

Surely one of the cassettes (or CDs) destroyed in feminism gatherings! Hehehe…
