The 1980s: Neon lights, synthesizers, blowdry hairstyles. The decade came a long way—from a perception of bad taste to a new-found love in its retrofuturistic vintage aesthetics.

Musically, the decade has much to offer: From the progression of post-punk into new and dark wave, synthesizer-driven sounds, the establishment of gothic rock to the rise of electronic music and early hip-hop.

Our esteemed members have sent in their favourite songs of the era so that we can compile a short list of classics. Here are their recommendations.
