"Push It" - Salt-N-Pepa (1988)

25 songs every '80s kid knows by heart (16)

You can be 18 or 58 and it still brings so much joy to sing all the outrageous lyricsthis late 80's masterpiece. Yes, that's right, I said "masterpiece" because it is. It's about four minutes of saying "p-push really good" over synth beats. But nothing makes a fellow dancer frown faster, and that's all it takes to prove that you've successfully rebelled against those in power, or at least every responsible adult within earshot.


"Sweet Child of Mine" - Guns N' Roses (1988)

25 songs every '80s kid knows by heart (17)

This song was common ground between pop-rock lovers and metal purists. This might not seem very remarkable, but it was an incredible achievement at the time. Metal,realMetal, never came close to satisfying the people they lovedvibrant melodies. And pop audiences, well, let's just say they haven't ventured into metal territory beyond Twisted Sister. But with "My sweet child"Guns N' Roses created a world where both factions could peacefully co-exist. You could be the tough, snarky metalhead who also loved a big chorus of headbanging and punching along.


"Just a Friend" - Biz Markie (1989)

There has never been a better example of the life lesson "Not everything you love will be good" than this one.Biz Markielied"Just a friend." No, it's not a good song. Arguably, it's a horrible song. Some might even call it scary. But when played on the radio or MTV at the right moment in life, it's like a tattoo on your soul. It doesn't have aged well. You recognize its flaws, you might even be the first to laugh about it - and you still love it. Even after all these years you can still sing along to every song lyric ("Yoooou... you've got, what I need... but you say he's just a friend...")


"Mickey" - Toni Basil (1982)

25 songs every '80s kid knows by heart (19)

This songit's like a chemical equation for perfect pop music. There's clapping (see: "Don't Stop Believin'" for details), repeat ("Oh Micky, you're so good, you're so good, you amaze me, hey Micky! Hey Micky!"), repeated until vomiting) and a catchy melody so simple that literally anyone could figure out the chords of a synthesized piano in just five minutes.


"I Want to Dance with Someone" - Whitney Houston (1987)

25 songs every '80s kid knows by heart (20)

Has any other song ever written in human history left everyone at a wedding on their feet? The answer is no. Don't even look. Nothing else comes close"I want to dance with someone (who loves me)."

"Africa" ​​- Toto (1982)

25 songs every '80s kid knows by heart (22)

Don't ask an '80s kid if he likes Weezer's cover of Africa. I'll save you the trouble - no we don't. WhyCuomos Riversunnecessary version. It would be likerebuilding stonehenge, or the Great Sphinx of Giza. If you already have one of these wonders of the world, why do you have to do it again? They will never replicate the magic, the awe-inspiring beauty, the breathtaking audacity of these marvels of human achievement. Just listen to the original"Africa”, and feel grateful for its abundance of musical riches.


"Love Shack" - Die B-52 (1989)

You may be exhausted from a40 hours a week, barely slept and without caffeine, ready to crawl home and fall asleep, but by the time the opening chords to "Liebesnest"Clap your ears, you're on your feet singing along like a crazy dancing machine. This song has so much power. We're all just mannequins in your hands. We follow the rhythm we're given, we try to fight it, but you're just getting deceiving.

"You shook me all night" - AC/DC (1980)

25 songs every '80s kid knows by heart (24)

Ohart rockender musicabout sex was so vague that you could listen to it with your grandmother and not feel uncomfortable. Of course, some lyrics pushed the boundaries of what was appropriate, like "Working double time/on the seduction line". But other than the word "seduction," nothing in it makes sense, and it's certainly not the kind of pun that would make an adult scold someone. So you sing it knowing it's all very dirty, not knowing why it's dirty, and it feels like a victory.
