Artofali /Like Totally 80s

The '80s music bonanza featured neon clothes, big hair, shoulder pads, and an unforgettable sound that is still loved and listened to decades later.

During that era, we didn't have music streaming platforms like Spotify and iTunes to have our playlists saved forever. Instead, we listened to music on the radio or on our Sony Walkman, so there are probably dozens of songs we used to love but completely forgot about after we got rid of our cassette tapes.

Here are 10 songs from the '80s that you used to rock out to back in the day, but have almost completely forgot about to this day.

1. "The Perfect Kiss" by New Order

The song was released in 1985 by English band New Order, and it was regarded as one of the group's masterpieces. Most people have no clue what the song is about, but it was fun to rock to as a teenager.

2. "Maneater" by Hall & Oates

The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1982, and remained in the top spot for a month straight.

3. "If This Is It" by Huey Lewis and the News

The American rock band rocked the charts with "If This Is It" in 1984. It's such a feel-good song, and you're probably ecstatic that you stumbled upon it again.

4. "Holdin' On" by Tane Cain

This track was all about girl power in the '80s, which was a huge deal ever since Madonna became the most beloved singer of that decade. It also helps that the song has an incredibly catchy hook. You've probably hummed the song before, but forgot what the name was.

5. "Saddest Victory" by Sandy Stewart

Stevie Nicks's best friend, Sandy Stewart, just missed getting on the Billboard Hot 100 list, but her track "Saddest Victory" was a true lost gem of the '80s.

These next ones were probably some of your favorite tunes from the '80s that you've completely forgot about...

I remember dancing like a robot to this song alone in my room, at my friend's house, and in public. The thing is, I wasn't only dancing to it, I was yelling the lyrics, and now I really wish I didn't.The 1983 song "She Bop" reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in '84, meaning that everyone was rocking out to another Cyndi Lauper hit.

10 Songs We Should Never Have Sung In Public, But Were Totally Obsessed With Anyway

Everyone has a guilty pleasure, and for me it was songs that weren't "cool" or "appropriate" to sing in public. Singing in front of people is already embarrassing, but there are certain songs you could hum to that wouldn't annoy or make someone uncomfortable. Here are 10 awesome songs from the '90s and early 2000s that wouldn't even dare to sing in public, even if there were no consequences. 1. "Get Down" By B4-4Aside from this music video being extremely unsettling (those facial expressions still make me laugh today), "Get Down" was addicting to sing to (in your head.) It's
