The 80s in Song, Alphabetically

May 8, 2008

My very favorite radio station indulges my growing sense of nostalgia by playing “All 80s Weekend” from 3:00 pm Friday through Sunday night and a one hour “Eighties at Eight” every morning. Currently they are going through the alphabet for their morning 80s hour, asking listeners to call in with songs that start with a particular letter. I figured it would be fun to try this at home, limiting myself to just one song per letter. Here goes…

A = “Always Something There to Remind Me” by Naked Eyes

B = “Burning Flame” by Vitamin Z

C = “Chains of Love” by Erasure

D = “DMSR” by Prince

E = “Everlasting Love” by Howard Jones

F = “Fascination” by The Human League

G = “Girls on Film” by Duran Duran

H = “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar

I = “I Ran (So Far Away)” by Flock of Seagulls

J = “Jesse’s Girl” by Rick Springfield

K = “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club

L = “Look of Love” by ABC

M = “Mandinka” by Sinead O’Connor

N = “No More Words” by Berlin

O = “Obssession” by Animotion

P = “People Are People” by Depeche Mode

Q = “Queen of Hearts” by Juice Newton

R = “Rock Lobster” by The B-52s

S = “Save It for Later” by The English Beat

T = “Thriller” by Michael Jackson

U = “Unbelievable” by EMF

V = “Video Killed the Radio Star” by Buggles

W = “World Shut Your Mouth” by Julian Cope

X = “Xanadu” by Olivia Newton John

Y = “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) by Dead or Alive

Z = Well, I could pick one of these, but truthfully I don’t recognize any of them.



  1. I love 80s trivia! My husband is better at it though. 🙂
