These go to 11: The best songs from the best movies of the 1980s

I love the 80s! Oh wait, that’s not trademarked or anything is it? Anyway, as a teenager at the time it was hard not to be bombarded with pop music and the culture that went along with it. It was the true beginning of the information age and short attention spans (thanks MTV!). As such, pop rattled around our little brains until it eventually saturated our outlook to leave us hazily gazing upon the real world with day glo-colored glasses.

Admittedly, a lot of it was really fun. And some of the best moments were on the silver screen. It was the time for brat packs, psychotic slashers and bafflingly bad action heroes. And, it seems we’re all nostalgic for it now — even if we weren’t born at the time.

The track gained popularity after it was featured during the closing credits to like omg, one of the most totally bitchin’ films of the decade: “Valley Girl” starring a young Nicolas Cage!
