Mixtape Contest Week 11: Songs of the 80s

We're now up to our 11th contest of the series. It's been fun so far, and I hope that continues on. This time our theme comes from Week 10's winner, Eldritch. In her own words:

Our next theme will be the most awesome of mix tape fodder, 80s music! The 80s were an amazing time for music, with creative explosions in every single genre of music. For this theme, please include the year your song was released. Come on Eileen, it's time to get those seagulls to flock again!

So there we go. It's time to think back to a different time. A time when Eddie Murphy still made good movies. A time when there was no such thing as too embarrassing when it came to clothing decisions. A time when big hair and a synthesizer was all you needed to rock! It's time for the 1980s to return.

Eldritch has requested that you include the year of the song's release in your list. Otherwise the same rules apply. You have until Tuesday, July 15 at noon to get your playlists turned in. I expect great things.
