I liked a little bit of it all. From Micheal Jackson to Duran Duran, Madona, Prince, Fleetwood Mac and even Reba and Dolly Parton.

I loved Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Prince, Debbie Gibson, and Tiffany. I also liked some of the hair bands like Poison. I'll still listen to a little bit of Poison.

So did I and other ones like Motley Crue and Bon Jovi in the 1980's when they sung rock and Def Lepard. Thanks for sharing

Def Lepard was so awesome! I was always so facinated as a kid how their drummer could play with just one arm. And I completely forgot to put Bon Jovi on my list. How could I have forgotten him? lol

I almost forgot def lepard. The Pyromania album was our soundtrack when I worked at Hersheypark. Thanks for the memories. I also liked Debbie (now Deborah) Gibson and Tiffany. They were such fun songs to sing along to and dance to.

Yeah Debra Gibson did have some great songs. Here in The United States Bon Jovi has gotten pretty big again but they sing country now. So it's sort of strange.I saw Madona not to long ago on t.v. doing a concert. She's still doing alright for over 20 years. She was singing when like in 1982 or 1983. I was about 12 or 13. I can't remember but old enough to start liking music.

There were so many! I loved Michael Jackson's Thriller album. After that, I didn't have much interest in him. I loved Styx, REO Speedwagon, Little River Band, Madonna, Journey. Loved to dance to Prince. Remember Air Supply? I was one of those who collected their albums and even bought the piano sheet music. Anything that was danceable in the 80's, I liked it. I forgot to mention Bon Jovi who is still going strong. Also Billy Joel.

Styx and Jorney were great. i don't know why I didn't say them. Journey was great and who can forget Mr. Roboto from Styx. Air Supply had the greatest romance songs and so did REO Speedwagaon with I can't fight this feeling anymore.

Everyone you have mentioned I love and still listen to regularly. I love Renegade by Styx. I actually saw them in concert about 7 years ago and they were still rockin out. Great concert! And Michael Jackson was the first person I ever saw in concert when I was 5. He was on his Thriller tour at the time. I remember when the monsters came out on the stage I got scared lol.

Madonna was my big favourite in the 1980s. I collected pictures and posters of her and put them all over my bedroom walls. I used to copy her hairstyles and her fashion. I even saw her live in concert in Leeds in 1987 during her Who's That Girl tour and I was stood about 30ft from the stage so it was a great experience and a huge crowd of 30,000 I think.

I love The Eurythmics, Roxy Music, Aha, UB40, Level 42 and the list goes on! Great decade and the best for music, especially pop!

Yeah Reo Speedwagon and Styx and Janet Jackson are good singers. That was pretty strange for Madonna. I remember that video also. I wasn't crazy about it either.

There were lots of bands in the 80's that I liked, my favourites would have to be A-Ha, Def Leppard, Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, and U2. Its good to see most of the 80's bands coming back again with new stuff.

The Music artists that I like then were Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, Banana Rama, Wham and many others. Well my all time favorite is Air Supply and they had been with us then too. I love their songs and I find them simply immortal. I also like Madonna and Spandau Ballet then.
