I was watching the old top of the pops programmes shown on bbc4 a while back, and this Depeche Mode song popped up, one I never heard before and I couldn't believe it, so good.

Here it is, enjoy....

I've given it some serious thought in recent weeks and have decided for humanity's behalf that the below is the greatest pop song of the 80s

Tears for Fears - Head Over Heels

Depeche Mode are easily my favourite band of all time, I've seen them live more times that I care to remember. I was waiting at Bedford train station earlier today to get back to Dulwich. I popped into the local pub and had a livener and lobbed a fiver in the jukebox and played all Depeche Mode songs for half an hour and I was singing away like a goodun! Love

PP, I do also really like Tears For Fears as well but their best song, for me anyway and I play it very often is "Woman In Chains" an absolute masterpiece of a song and I love it hugely.

Right, if I get a chance I'll use my self-imposed position as auditor of good taste and come up with an 80's Pop Top 10 later. Did a spotify playlist for crimbo eve which was along those lines and frankly it was a belter.


Stay tuned kids!

Prefab Sprout were wonderful as well, don't you forget about them P.P. Their album "Steve McQueen" is a complete and utter 10/10 job.Love

Prefab Sprout are a good shout. Though my fave song of theirs is Bonny which inexplicably was never released.

Deacon Blue are ok. Just a bit beige for me.



Right here goes. Got my minions on it and this is the definitive list. All were Top 40 hits and I tried to keep them as "pop". There was plenty of good metal for instance, and I also resisted the good shouts from the likes of The Cure, The Fall and REM. Couple of mainstream rock artists here but they were big charting ones so I think they're valid. Any complaints speak to the manager.

Well, I have to be honest with you P.P. That is a very disappointing top 10 from you from such a wonderful decade of music that was the 80's Sad None of those songs apart from Lloyd Cole and Kate Bush would make in my in top 100 let alone my top 10.

It's all a very subjective and a personal thing as to what songs are important and mean a lot to you. I'll do my top 10 80's songs tomorrow when I have a good think about it.

If we're just going best songs then I'll probably have a completely different 10 to be fair. Tried to keep them "pop" and had to have been singles that cracked the top 40.
By:

When: 27 Dec 18 19:57
It is indeed Coachbuster, I already know what my number 1 song is from the 80.'s and it isn't a Depeche Mode track!

Brilliant Mind by Furniture, I'll have to think about the others. I must have listened to that song a thousand times mate.

"You must be out of your brilliant mind" ! Yes I probably am Laugh
