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...
