The 80s guilty pleasure list.

I was born in January of 1981.  Just 8 months older than MTV.  I was just barely old enough to remember dancing around the house to Madonna and Culture Club.  Now that I've grown up, I am not ashamed to admit my love for 80s retro, and I'm a bit offended if it's classed as "oldies." [I'm not ready to give up on being an oldie yet myself.]

On Yahoo's music blogs, there's a playlist of all those sissy 80s songs that you were afraid to admit that you liked.

  1. Too Shy - Kajagoogoo
  2. No One To Blame - Howard Jones
  3. Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - Culture Club
  4. Poison Arrow - ABC
  5. Save A Prayer - Duran Duran
  6. Careless Whisper - WHAM!
  7. Hold Me Now - Thompson Twins
  8. If You Leave - OMD
  9. Blasphemous Rumours - Depeche Mode
  10. Tainted Love - Soft Cell
  11. It's My Life - Talk Talk
  12. More Than This - Roxy Music
  13. I Ran (So Far Away) - A Flock Of Seagulls
  14. Promises, Promises - Naked Eyes
  15. Perfect Way - Scritti Politti
  16. West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys
  17. Only You - Yaz
  18. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper
  19. Safety Dance - Men Without Hats
  20. Love Plus One - Haircut 100
  21. True - Spandau Ballet

Good songs on there. But, you forgot the great, great "Major Tom (Coming Home)" by Peter Schilling.
