The Human League - Don't You Want Me


yeah, i just had to go listen to forever young to be sure i wasn't losing my mind - i'm now going to double down on this being the answer and i don't think forever young is even... top 10 from this topic.

Don't You Want Me is good, but I still take Forever Young as more 80s.

I always thought the bigger Depeche songs were 90s but that may just be me

i mean, is this about "'80sest song" or "'80s-ish song that was biggest in the '80s"?

I still think what I originally posted is more '80s, but this song (Always Something There to Remind Me) is pretty strongly set in the era too. Who sat down and wrote the percussion part for this song? It's absolutely wild.

It's about the 80sest song not the most ahead of its time in the 80s

Surprised no one has mentioned "Money for Nothing" or "Video Killed the Radio Star"

...although I guess the 2nd one is technically 1979 even though the album was released on January 10th 1980 (the single released in 1979)

Video Killed the Radio Star is good, but not as 80s as the others.

I want to change my answer to 99 Red Balloons because it has both the 80s synth rock sound and it's about Cold War-era fear of nuclear war that wasn't really part of the zeitgeist after the 80s.

How about a song that made people question the band's artistic integrity?
