80s Songs You Will Dance Crazy To
Author: Martin Sejas
For some reason, 80s songs are still in high demand today, perhaps as much as they were during their heyday. There are few people who can live without a regular dose of music from this musical era.
Perhaps, in the morning, you want someone to wake you up before you go-go, so that you can dance like a maniac to the classic Wham song. Perhaps you still that iconic T-shirt with the words "Choose Life" on it in your wardrobe. Who can ever forget that song, let alone, the iconic video that represents all those crazy yet happy times in the 80s?
If you?re a girl, then all you pretty much wanted to do in the 80s was to have fun. All girls just wanna have fun, right? Cyndi Lauper was able to capitalize on the success of that song to have a successful career and became an 80s icon in the process. There?s no doubt that the girls can have a lot of fun when the DJ puts this song on in the nightclub.
On the other hand, the guys in the nightclub must be careful of those maneaters that lurk around. Yes, there are maneaters everywhere and Hall and Oates were right to sing about it in this classic 80s song. The fact that the song made it to number 1 in numerous countries justified their decision. There couldn't be a more appropriate song to play at a club!
There are few who would disagree that life today is busier than in the 80s. We need a holiday more than ever before. Madonna made us crave one in the 80s and the song still does the same thing today, albeit to a greater extent. It wouldn't be a surprise to find people preferring a holiday back to the 80s rather than to another place on Earth.
Real music legends are few and far between these days but 80s songs certainly showcased a lot of these. By simply telling us repeatedly that Billie Jean was not his lover, he cemented his spot as musical legend in the 80s. Michael Jackson eventually convinced us of that through a singing voice and dancing ability that so far remains unmatched. It's a pity that he has now left us.
The best thing about 80s songs is that we have a medium through which we can feel the vibes, happiness and passion of such a much loved and missed musical era.
