- "Every Breath You Take" by The Police. Regardless of how many times this song is played, it retains a magic that exists only for the most solidly constructed, universally themed, and uniquely presented musical compositions.
- "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor. This Chicago-area mainstream power rock band is known mostly for its power ballads that always had a knack for delivering some of the most bombastic lyrics of the decade.
- "I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner. Foreigner enjoyed a number of hits in the '80s, but none reached as high a level of over-the-top romantic longing as this keyboard-heavy love ballad does.
- "Jump" by Van Halen. Some '70s and '80s hard rock bands turned to pop out of desperation or just pure greed as the hair metal phenomenon kicked off. In the case of Van Halen, the stylistic turn seemed as organic and wonderful as the splendid synthesizer riff that fuels this tune, or David Lee Roth's exuberant leap, or Eddie Van Halen's infectious grin.

- “Close to Me” by the Cure. Robert Smith’s un-merry men spent roughly half of the ’80s making desperately sad goth rock, and the other half writing some of the best pop songs of all time.
- “Modern Love” by David Bowie. Bowie was all over the place during the ’80s: duetting with Jagger, clambering into spandex for Labyrinth, getting buried alive for Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence and ultimately embarking on a midlife crisis that resulted in a worrying beard and Tin Machine.
- “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston. In 1987, Houston was still very much a fresh-faced siren with the crystal-clear voice and a world of possibilities at her feet.
- “Free Fallin’” by Tom Petty. Is there anyone who doesn’t like this song? The famously cantankerous Lou Reed loved it, as did Tom Cruise’s go-get-’em titular character in Jerry Maguire (who, no disrespect, doesn’t seem like the most scrutinizing music listener).
