1. "Never Gonna Give You Up" By Rick Astley

Why is this #1. on my list? Because without this song we wouldn't have the classic "Rick-rolling" meme! It's classic! Plus, this song is a serious bop, who wouldn't like it?

2. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" By Whitney Houston

Released on May 2, 1987, this song is a timeless hit! Perfect for parties, loooong car rides, and listening to at home with headphones, or plugged in to a speaker for all to hear!

3. "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" By Cyndi Lauper

Sung by the ever so eccentric, and unique Cyndi Lauper, this song is forever the teen girls' jam. It was released on Sept 6, 1983, and since then has been listened to on repeat by fans over and over.

4. "Livin On A Prayer" By Bon Jovi

"Ohhh we're halfway there! O-hh livin on a prayer! Take my hand, & we'll make it I swear! O-hh livin on a prayer!"

Even if you don't know the rest of the lyrics, chances are that you do know the chorus! Released on Oct 31, 1986, and it's still being enjoyed today...that's what makes it a bop.

5. "Don't Stop Believing" By Journey

Belt it in your room, blast it in your headphones, and turn the speakers up to the MAX because this song is one for Every. Single. Day. You can't go wrong playing this song. Ever.

It was released on June 3, 1981, and we're glad that it was!

Now that you've heard a list of some of the best songs of the 80's (in my opinion anyways) you can go listen to them for yourself! Comment down below what your favorite 80's song is!
