VH1 Top 100 Songs of the 80s

VH1 Top 100 Songs of the 1980's

ranked in 2006

It's somewhat semi-decent  list with mostly the same songs shown often on MTV/VH1 lists.  I usually just see the same songs from bands that had several hits placed. Especially Madonna, Duran Duran, Van Halen, INXS, to name a few.  Most  VH1 countdowns/specials were a bit of a guilty pleasure, which I usually just watched for vintage interview footage.


Like that "Only In My Dreams" is included, albeit very low.

"Come On Eileen" from Dexy's Midnight Runners is a fun, campy song, but is placed too high within the Top 20.


Plus some that should be left out.
