When you think of the best ’80s songs, do you automatically flash to synthesizers, asymmetrical haircuts, the safety dance and sunglasses at night? Well, you’re not wrong, but it should also make you think of much, much more. It was the decade that made one-named new artists Madonna and Prince household names. The string of smashes that Michael Jackson released during the period earned him the title King of Pop. In the ‘80s, rap went mainstream, big hair would never be bigger and artists had a bitchin’ new outlet with which to promote their music: MTV. It was, like, totally awesome!
