    The Laughably-80s, Insipid One-Hit-Wonder Thread

    So this has probably been done before, but it's always good to poke a little fun at those mindless, annoying 80's tunes that somehow seem to work their way into your head from time to time. To start off with, I give you two choice ones:

    Haircut 100 - "Love Plus One"

    a.k.a. "I have a fever, and the only prescription is more...marimba!"

    ABC - "Poison Arrow"


    Do your worst!

    Now that you mention Don Johnson,
    I always dug this tune. Made me drive fast.

    Who could forget this inspirational tune? I wish to hell that I could.

    Men Without Hats - The Safety Dance (2:43)


    This one I happen to like. Nena's "99 Luftballoons". What's to dislike? An indestructable melody, a mention of Captain Kirk and still one of the cutest, most adorable lead singers in recorded history. The song actually had two versions. The original was sung in German, and featured the guitars much further out front in the mix. Yet the sight of underarm hair in the early eighties was just as upsetting to Western audiences as it is today, so the video and the tune recieved make-overs: The footage was reshot, the song translated and sung in English and the annoying addition of 80's keyboards stifled the mix.

    Nena - 99 Luftballons (German)1984 (3:53)


    Nena-99 Red Balloons - (3:47)


    And yes, I'm still in love with the girl.
