The most popular music seems to come and go in waves, which most people find easiest to classify (more or less) by decades. So how do we define the music of the '80's?

Pia Sooney of liketotally80s.com says:

The pop music of any decade leaves a lasting impression on generations to come. It helps define the tone and feeling of a decade both for those that lived through it as well as for those who will come to appreciate it later. The 60's had their protest songs and the Beatles. The 70's ranged widely from the mellow music of Bread, The Carpenters, and James Taylor to the gaudy and flamboyant disco music of the latter part of the decade.

 Sure, the 80's had Ronald Reagan and Reaganomics, John Hughes films and Molly Ringwald, but could any of that compare with the likes of Madonna, Tiffany, Olivia Newton-John, Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Belinda Carlisle, The Bangles, or Prince? I think not! 

Not only did 80's pop music define who we were, but the music held the anthems of our daily lives. We woke up to “Manic Mondays” with the Bangles just to find ourselves “hangin tough” with the New Kids On The Block by the time Wednesday or Thursday rolled around. By the end of the week, it was “Friday, I’m in Love.” When the weekend came, Kylie had us doing the “Locomotive” and Debbie Gibson taught us that youth was electric.

And one of what we could call  the sub-categories of music from the earliest days of rock 'n' roll in the decades before the 80's became a major part of 1980's music, as  explained on thepeoplehistory.com:

The eighties was the decade of one-hit wonders, where an artist would achieve massive success with one or two extremely popular songs and then seemingly fade away, never able to re-create their success. Part of this had to do with the expansion of the music industry, facilitated by MTV and technology.

Record companies could now make just as much money by manufacturing one-hit artists in succession while not having to invest the time and money that would make a mediocre musician into a star with more longevity. Trends were also changing more quickly and many artists could not keep up and adapt fast enough.

As the world's society became more globalized, the pool of talent became bigger, making it easier to move on to the next new artist. The changes in technology and societal attitudes also meant that consumers' attention spans got shorter. Some of the most memorable one-hit wonders from the decade include a-ha's "Take On Me," Soft Cell's "Tainted Love," Toni Basil's "Mickey," Nena's "99 Luftballoons," and Dexy's Midnight Runners' "Come On Eileen."
