Top 100 '80s Songs

Journey Dont' Stop Believin'

Our Top 100 '80s Songs cover everything from rock, to hair-ballads, and yes, even synth-pop. But the band that reigned the '80s was none other than Journey, who is responsible for seven hit songs on our list and proudly holds the No. 1 spot with the party anthem 'Don't Stop Believin'.' Def Leppard has four hits on the list (mostly from 'Hysteria'), followed by Prince, Tears for Fears, Hall & Oates, Phil Collins, Heart, and Michael Jackson with three songs each. Even though Tommy Tutone only appears once on the list, everyone knows Jenny's number by heart. If your favorite '80s songs didn't make our list, we want to know about it!
