  1. This is the 3rd time that I had to upload the video, as it got blocked for copyright infringement twice over the last 16 months. Spotify Playlist:

  2. Where's Hungry Like the Wolf? That's the only glaring exception I see besides a lot of alternative stuff.

  3. The 80s were the best time of my life!

  4. Basically no matter the quality of the song if it was from the 80s you must be sure that it was a fffing classic. It was like a blessing.

  5. I think The GO GO's is also a classic girl band

  6. Kaja googooのスカンクヘア~に笑える😁

  7. Me gusta mucho la música de los 80sme relaja y me siento muy bien gracias

  8. Is it weird that i was listening to a song called boys dont cry, then after that there was a band called boys dont cry?

  9. michael jackson the king of pop and 80s

  10. Artist: MJ
    Song: Never Gonna Give You Up

  11. I really love it but some important songs are missing. "Wind of change" by Scorpions, Suptertramp is missing (Don't leave me now, My kind of lady), Falco is present but not with "Jeanny" which is his masterpiece. What about Barclay James Harvest, The Alan Parson's Project, Culture Club? And there also were some great German productions, maybe not that important on international level: Ideal with "Blaue Augen", BAP with "verdamp lang her", "Faust auf Faust" by Klaus Lage…

  12. Today's music just sucks. No one even knows who these crap artist are. Not even worth it. No one is going to be crying in 30 years missing their 2020 jams!
    Give me my 80s back!!

  13. when the American rap rise at late 90s, I stop hearing the western song

  14. Nothing from Back In Black the #2 best selling album ever. Back in Black and You Shook Me All Night Long should have been in there.

  15. Pensar que en unos 20 años los niños dirán: papá, era mejor la música de mis abuelitos que las porquerías que escuchabas tú.

  16. What would the 80's have been like without phil collins or Michael Jackson loved them both….

  17. Crazy how every video like this never includes gangstas paradise

  18. Faltou The cure, Eco in the bunnyman, Yes, Nina HAGEN

  19. The fact I was born in the last 2000s yet I can name far more 80s song then post 2000s shows just how great of a decade the 80s was for music

  20. Well I guess everyone here got rick rolled 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  21. The 80's music will never die 👊👊

  22. hold the line -toto and Its perfect

  23. I was born in 1997 but thank to my dad (he keep repeat 70s, 80s and 90s song everyday) i know almost all song in this video

  24. papa don't preach is such a fantastic song!

  25. 9:49 Shes walking on a cloudy day lmao

  26. The police were amazying band

  27. I suspect this whole video was made to Rick roll us
