"I Love Rock N Roll"

The Eighties Still Live On As The Greatest Decade Of Music

By Jasper WolfPublished 3 years ago 3 min read

The 80's is the generation of music that never dies. Even teenagers here in 2020 still love the 80's. Many songs today sound the same, but back then, every song and singer has their own style. Guys wore make up, high heels, feminine colors and still got all of the girls. In this article, I will highlight a few of the hit songs and who they are by. I will do it in a form that I believe could make an article. If not, then just enjoy the lyrics that people of all ages still sing today.

Quite a few of the singers of the famous era have either passed away of drugs or are still famous today. The "Queen of the 80's" Madonna, still makes hits today. Despite making music for three decades already, she hasn't quit. She was the target of controversy while kissing other girls on stage. The singers, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

Aerosmith did a superbowl halftime show back in the early 2000's with Nsync, Britney Spears, and Nelly. They sink their feet in the music business to grab the ears of the young people today.

Michael Jackson has always been the, "King of Pop". He got in trouble and fought the courts stating he was a pedophile. He won the case and continued his concerts and still reaching his fan base, young and old.

So, Enjoy my 80's article. Hope you can hear the songs in your head as you read these famous lyrics that still blow through speakers today.

Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to get through this thing called life . Electric word life it means forever and that's a mighty long time . But I'm here to tell you there's something else, The afterworld . A world of never ending happiness. You can always see the sun, day or night. So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills. You know the one, Dr. Everything'll-Be-Alright . Instead of asking him how much of your time is left . Ask him how much of your mind, baby . 'Cause in this life, Things are much harder than in the after world . In this life, You're on your own -Prince (1984)


So never judge a book by its cover . Or who you gonna love by your lover . Love put me wise to her love in disguise . She had the body of a Venus . Lord, imagine my surprise . Dude looks like a lady. -Aerosmith (1987)


I'm starting with the man in the mirror . I'm asking him to change his ways . And no message could have been any clearer . If you want to make the world a better place . Take a look at yourself, and then make a change. -Michael Jackson (1988)

Michael Jackson

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days . And the people I meet always go their separate ways . Sometimes you tell the day . By the bottle that you drink . And times when you're alone all you do is think.-Bon Jovi (1986)

Bon Jovi

Open your heart to me, baby . I hold the lock and you hold the key . Open your heart to me, darling . I'll give you love if you, you turn the key.- Madonna (1986)


This may be the end of the article, but it's far from over for the 80's. Tune into YouTube and watch your favorite 80's singers in action. You will then realize that even now in 2020, many of your favorite songs were born in the greatest decade for music.
