Don Johnson. The title track became a top 5 hit, peaking at 5 on the Billboard Hot singles chart.
Living In A Box. Taylor Dayne. Make It Big. Make It Big is the second studio album from British pop duo Wham! It was mostly recorded at Studio Miraval in Southern France to escape the press and enable George Michael to work peacefully. In comparison to their earlier work, the duo had more control over the album's production, as Michael became the sole credited producer, a position he would subsequently hold on all future releases until the group split in The album was a critical and commercial success, hitting number one in both the UK and the US and spawning four singles, all topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

Richard Marx. Released in mid, it reached No. The album was certified four times platinum in United States due to five major singles on the Billboard charts, including two No. Fine Young Cannibals.
Four songs from the album first appeared in film soundtracks in the mids, three of which were soul tracks from the Tin Men film. The band had already recorded over half of the album by the time David Z came to produce the remainder. Rupert Everett leading the whole wedding party in a sing-along of this hit song is still as entertaining to watch now as it was when My Best Friend's Wedding was released in A lot of what Julia Roberts' character does in this movie is reprehensible, but moments like the brunch scene give the film some heart.
Pottery has never been so sexy. The moment when Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore get a little messy working with the wet clay would probably seem strange without this soulful love song setting the mood. It's hard to imagine any other tune working as well. Just reading the title of the song evokes flashbacks of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet carrying on their love affair on the doomed ship. A movie about a teen who brings the love of music and dancing back to a small town coping with tragedy better have a solid soundtrack.
Kenny Loggins certainly delivered on that. The title track is the ultimate toe-tapper. Archived from the original on December 3, Flood Magazine.

Warner Bros. Madonna Into The Groove Celebration. Ray Parker Jr. Ghostbusters Young at Heart Various Artists. Reader's Digest. The better song from the "Dirty Dancing" soundtrack comes from Cleveland's own Eric Carmen and better captures the powerful love affair at the center of the movie.
Mister - "Broken Wings". Mister had a huge , releasing two singles that would go to No. A-ha - "Take On Me". Ultimately, it feels like one of the most honest love songs of the s, asking someone for a chance at a relationship with baggage in one hand. Had we opened this list up to more than one song from an artist, Foreigner would have easily scored two songs. As it stands we're going with the band's biggest showcase.
Given its uplifting sound, "Keep on Loving You" has made its way into numerous movies. It may just be the quintessential s soft rock song. The Cars - "Drive". Given all the s love songs, finding a new metaphor for romance was quite an achievement.
Fittingly, The Cars use driving as the starting point for a series of questions about potential devotion. It became the band's highest charting single. Tears for Fears - "Head over Heels". Interestingly enough, one of Tears for Fears' signature tunes took two years to get released. A live version combined with "Broken" appeared on the blockbuster album "Songs from Big Chair," but it was "Head over Feels" that stuck in your head. Sister Sledge - "Thinking of You". Like the group's other trademark songs, it was produced by Chic duo Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards.
Their signature guitar and bass sounds are at the songs center, making it the kind of disco track that could exist in any era. The Bangles - "Eternal Flame". It might not seem like it, but The Bangles are actually one of the more successful female led acts of all time.
A big part of that is "Eternal Flame," one of three No. Cameo - "Candy". Not every love song has to be slow. Cameo's "Candy" is a declaration of romance. But what pushes it over the top is the fact it's also a magnum funk opus still played at weddings. Just about everyone associated with Pete Townshend was iffy on whether or not he should release such a blatant new wave song. Leave it to Stevie Wonder, one of the greatest composers of our time, to turn a simple and awesome gesture into a classic love song.
You were probably expecting "Every Breath You Take" to make this list. But we don't find stalker songs all that loving. Rufus and Chaka Khan - "Ain't Nobody". But Chaka Khan's voice over the dance-happy tune was something to marvel at, making it one of her most popular songs. Journey - "Open Arms". It's been covered various times but never with this kind of conviction.
That's because anything her voice touched, she owned from that moment on. It's one of simplest songs Houston ever recorded, but her vocal power is on full display. Modern English - "I Melt with You". Modern English's amazing "I Melt with You" feels at once totally 80s oh, that epic montage scene in "Valley Girl" , while also being a song that could come out today and still be a massive hit.
Berlin - "Take My Breath Away". It's also essential to the blockbuster film it scores, given that it makes a relationship that's not really in jeopardy feel like it's the most combustible thing on the planet. Michael Jackson might be one of the most underrated songwriters of all time, given how many chart-toppers he wrote on his own. Heart - "Alone".This is really a great set of 2 CDs with plenty of upbeat tunes from popular 80’s movies. Several songs come from the following movies Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Beverly Hills Cop, Karate Kid, Top Gun, and Rocky. Each CD has 20 songs with CD 1 running-time of and CD 2 running-time of /5(21).
