Also Beastie Boys "Fight For your Right", 1986- I was about ten years old when that song came out, I was one of the only kids in my elementary school, rocking out to that song. my teachers defiently did not appreciate it.

I use to like "Take on me" by A-Ha, but it seems like after that dumb ass movie Corky Romano, everyone and their grandma loves that song. I'm not one of those idiots who has to be different, but music does get played out, and that made it drop in my books. My favorite? Total Eclips of the Heart, by Bonnie Tyler. Not just another 80's song with a funky beat. Something with a little emotion. Something your friends would groan at if they knew you liked it, but you'll listen to it by yourself because you like it. Also, Moody Blues "In your Wildest Dreams". Fo sheezy.

finally someone mentioned the cure.

 

 

oh yeah, this is sorta disrespectful to ask, but I was just curious as to which song it was again that the lead singer of Joy Division was listening to when he killed himself.
