Fine Young Cannibals - She Drives Me Crazy
I actually didn't know this was from the 80's when I first heard it, I first found it bundled inside my mum's old record collection -- I really love the song.
Paula Abdul - Straight Up
This song is really awesome, sometimes I really feel bad that I weren't alive when Paula Abdul was at her peak in the music industry, I figured this after listening to her first 2 albums Forever Your Girl and Spellbound.
Janet Jackson - Rhythm Nation / Miss You Much
Now Janet Jackson (along with Madonna) are the two of the few artist I'm really familiar with who emerged from the 80s. I do wonder why they never got compared to each other (especially Janet and Paula)
Madonna - Like A Prayer
Surprisingly Madonna's "Like A Prayer" still seems as relevant today as it probably did back when it was fresh on the charts. It was one of the first records my mum ever bought when she moved to London back in 1988.
