I have to disagree with avoiding "Love Shack"!


I will be cranking that one through the party, in memory of my mother. When it would come on the radio when I was a kid my mother would crank it up till the dogs howled and we'd dance around the living room like crazy people. One of my favorite songs :)

My all time favorite is "Don't You Want Me?" by Human League.  And I don't think it really counts to include Adam Sandler's tune in there, as it was only part of an 80s tribute movie?

I disagree with some of these; there are some 90s songs on here--both "Everything I Do" and "Could Not Ask for Me" are from that era.  "Every Breath You Take" is a song from The Police and it's basically about a stalker.  Maybe the writer meant "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin?  And I do think that while "Love Shack" may be "overused" for some, if you enjoy it and you know it's going to get people out on the dance floor, go for it.
