What is this? This is the first in a series of 12 cross-over posts from my other blog, Prof deBock Dance Party commemorating the top songs of the 1980’s.
Count? 6 of 12!
Artist: Van Halen
Comment: A sort of synth-metal sound was another important variant of the 80’s sound. Van Halen barely beat out Twisted Sister for this spot on the list. Personally, Van Halen was never a favorite of mine, but that might have been because I was jealous of that rock-and-rock hair!
The list so far:
- Celebration by Kool and the Gang
- Rock the Casbah by The Clash
- Our Lips are Sealed by The Go-Gos
- Jack and Diane by John Cougar (aka John Mellencamp)
- Billie Jean by Michael Jackson
- Jump by Van Halen
