The Cure - Just Like Heaven, favorite song of all time
Joy Division - Love Will Tear us Apart, I like the BBC version music video
New Order - Dreams Never End, 3rd place
The Psychedelic Furs - Love My Way has anyone else posted the furs yet? I've only looked at pages 1-5 and 18 and 19.
The Cure - Lets Go To Bed, the cure again
Has anyone posted Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark? Good 80s band too. Also there is a lack of Depeche Mode, surprisingly.

Believe it or not, the singer is Ricky Gervais when he was in the pop group Seona Dancing back in 1983.

Oh then there's the awesome classic Deathrock that came out of the 80's,
Don't even get me started on all the amazing Post-Punk, Batcave, Coldwave and Darkwave music that came out around this time.

YES from 1983.
U2 from '83
Petty from 1989
Tom Cochrane and Red Rider from 1980
John Mellencamp from '82.
Still, it bothers me that I left out so many great bands/singers from the 80s. Talking Heads, INXS, The Police, Billy Idol, April Wine, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Dire Straits, Don Henley, Gino Vannelli, Guns N' Roses, Men at Work, Michael Jackson, Rush, The Scorpions, The Clash, Van Halen, etc. Not to mention the 80s had to be the greatest decade for one hit wonders.

Video above is the Ramones performing "Pet Sematary" live at the MTV Studios back in 1989
and below is the music video from same year featuring scenes from the movie "Pet Sematary".
Song inspired by Stephen King's book and film of the same name.
My favorite song from the Ramones of the 80's.

Yes, this is one of the cheesiest songs ever, but it's also a fine example of how to achieve longevity in the music industry. Even now, nearly 20 years after its release, it's still a very well known songs, still listened to by many, and still bloody good. I take my hat off to Mr. Richie.
And then there's this, a love song by a bunch of goths. When I first started listening to these guys, they felt as though they'd come from the future. That was in the 90's. I later learned that this was simply because their sound was so unique and finely tuned that they essentially didn't belong to the sound of an era, it was all their own, and that forever impressed the balls off me.
