Rolling Stone has revealed its list of The 200 Best Songs of the 1980s… and the top ten has a few surprises!

RS said the ’80s were “music’s most insane decade. The hits, the deep cuts, the fan favorites. A mix tape of pop classics, rockers, rappers, soul divas, New Wavers, disco jams, country twangers, punk ragers, dance-floor anthems, smooth operators, and karaoke room-clearers. There’s all-time legends and one-hit wonders.”
