Back by popular demand! If you're new to the game or need a refresher, it works like this ----> Listed below are all the songs from each respective year of the '80s which reached the Top 5 of Billboard's Hot 100. Your mission is to whittle them down to a shortlist and ultimately determine a winner for that year. Eliminations are held at least once every 24 hours.

 

A couple of changes to the game... Firstly I am introducing a vote-off/save system so when you cast your vote you can also cast to save, however the save vote is optional. Secondly I will not be participating in this series since it was a point of contention during '90s Survivor and I'd like to try my hand at just being the host, so it's over to you guys. Have fun!

 

1980

 

Note: For this round you can vote up to three off and opt to save one.

I vote off:

 

Against The Wind - Bob Seger

Funkytown - Lipps, Inc. (Ugh I know it's iconic but it's so annoying at the same time :lol:)

 

I save Sexy Eyes by Dr. Hook

With one vote to both eliminate and save 'Working My Way' and 'Sexy Eyes' they cancel each other out which means we say goodbye to five songs this round, and they are 'Coming Up', 'Funkytown', 'All Out Of Love', 'Coward Of The County' and 'Longer'.
