Huge 80s Playlist - Spotify Playlist - Best 80s Music

Totally The Best 80’s Music Playlist Ever

I have been collecting 80s music on this Spotify playlist for a long time now and I have 880+ songs in there – mostly New Wave, which makes it even better. It’s so big, I created a smaller “faves” playlist too. I also have great 70s, 90s and Aughts playlists as well! Hope you enjoy!

  4. Aimee Giese

    Oh and something just happened with Simple Minds on Rdio – a bunch of their stuff is unavailable right now.

  5. Isabel

    Gosh, i loved New Wave.
    is Personal Jesus on there?

  6. Karen

    Oh yeah, that’s right. Erasure had some great stuff.

    I’ll think of more. I love music. 🙂

  7. Aimee Giese

    Isabel, I will add it for you. DP is one of my fave bands but that is not one of my fave songs by them.

    And Karen – I can’t believe someone besides me loves Leaving Me Now. A long time fave song.

    Hey i am trying to find an 80s song but i cant remember the title. The song was sung by a female artist. It was kind of a haunting celtic melody. I remember the song talking about standing on the shore and longing to be with someone. I am thinking maybe this was a one hit wonder kind of thing. Any help would be great. I have been trying to find this song for a long time. Its like an itch i cant scratch. Thanks all. Dave

      Is is Clannad’s “In A Lifetime” – with Bono?

    Some people consideer that brand watches are a luxury that iis not worth tthe price.
    Saving with the style is a rare arrangement and this is the most excellent place where you can get that.
    Yes, not only does the watch function as a watch,
    the phone actually let you call with a considerable talk-time and
    stand-by time, but you ccan click pictures too.

    Is Cruiser’s Creek by The Fall on your playlist? Anything by The Smithereens?

    • Aimee

      I know the Fall and Smithereens are on there – but not that specific song!

    I didn’t see any Queen!!!!!! also, Mr. blue sky by ELO is great, and where is the love by black eyed peas, which is a early 90’s song , but still deserves a spot

    • Aimee

      Another One Bites The Dust is there but you are right – a few others from Queen should be added!
