The 1980s was the decade spanning from 1 January 1980 to 31 December 1989.
This tag consists of music first released in this time frame.

The decade began with a backlash against disco music in the United States, and a movement away from the orchestral arrangements that had characterized much of the music of the 1970s. Music in the 1980s was characterized by unheard of electronic sounds accomplished through the use of synthesizers and keyboards, along with drum machines. This made a dramatic change in music.

In the United States, MTV was launched and music videos began to have a huge effect on the record industry. U.S. pop artists such as Madonna and Michael Jackson mastered the format and turned it into big business.

'New wave' and 'synth-pop' were developed by many British and United States artists and became popular phenomena throughout the decade, especially in the early and mid eighties.

Hard rock, heavy metal, 'big hair' bands and glam metal, experienced extreme popularity in 1980s, becoming some of the most dominant music genres of the 1980s.

House and techno emerged both in Chicago and Detroit in early 80s and then become mainstream in 1990s.

--Live Aid concert in 1985 containing many artists promotes attention and action to send food aid to Ethiopia whose people were suffering from a major famine.

--The Hip hop scene evolved to become a powerful musical force.
Sweet Child o' Mine
by Guns N' Roses

She's got a smile it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I'd stare too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet love of mine

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sweet child o' mine
Oh,
Sweet love of mine

Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, oh
Where do we go?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh, (sweet child)
Where do we go now?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
Oh,
Where do we go?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
Oh,
Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Oh,
Where do we go now?
No, no, no, no, no, no
Sweet child,
Sweet child of mine
