  1. I’m going strictly eighties, and not necessarily good eighties (those are probably in my Post-Punk or New Wave genres). A theory I hashed out is that anything you listened to non-stop from ages 9-13 will remain subjectively listenable for all time, even though objectively speaking it’s crap. For me (1982-1986), it was a lot of top 40 radio and the dawn of MTV, when music videos by even unattractive people were being played non-stop.

    1. Every Time You Go Away by Paul Young
    2. Dancing With Myself by Billy Idol
    3. Circle in the Sand by Belinda Carlisle
    4. Panama by Van Halen
    5. Jeopardy by The Greg Kihn Band
    6. Life in a Northern Town by Dream Academy
    7. Words by Missing Persons
    8. Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins
    9. Girls on Film by Duran Duran
    10. Major Tom (Coming Home) by Peter Schilling

    This is so true. Though maybe a little higher for me. Say, 11 – 15.
