Annoying 80's songs

So we have a game at work where first thing in the morning some one will sing one of those annoying songs like "I'm Blue" by eiffel 65. And unfortunatly my main opponent seems to have an endless arsenal of titles at his finger tips.

Was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for ammunition.

Annoying songs of the 80's? There were no such things as annoying songs. It was the 80's, the last stand for real rock n roll. Not this Creed type rock nowadays.

So you'd include 'Rock me Amadeus' in with the last stand for rock and roll?

Amend that to ANYTHING by Bryan Adams. Canada needs to pay reparations for unleashing him on us.

Annoying 80's songs? That's redundant. So is "annoying 80's hair" and "annoying 80's White House occupants."

But seriously, I loved the 80's, and I loved a lot of the music, but there really were some ungodly annoying songs then....but then that's true of any decade. But of course, that wasn't the point of the thread starter.
