    The Heart thread got me thinking (uh oh)

    I must have listened to "these dreams" and "alone" a couple thousand times a piece in the last 25 years. yet there are others that I have listened to more! I'll ask CHL to do a pole. I mean make a poll:icon_lol:.

    My top choice for pop song of the decade is Bryan Adams "Summer of 69.

    2.Your love

    3.Take my breath away

    4. if you leave "breakfast club"

    5.Take me home tonight

    6. Love is a battlefield

    7.Madonna's open your heart

    8.Dancing in the Dark

    9.Jessie's Girl

    10.photograph (didn't want my man card revoked for the other 9 songs:()

    Don't know about the greatest, but Robert Palmer sure knew how to make a music video.

    I read recently that Summer of 69 didn't refer to the year 1969 but rather the sexual position. Bryan Adams, so sneaky

    The 80's confounds time. The 80's never left. It's still here! 30 years, 3000 years, 30,000,000 years later.

    Greatest 80's pop song:
