Music exploded into about eighty different directions all at once, thanks in part to MTV. Videos gave everyone a chance to be creative and take risks with their music.

    Having said that, I’m willing to hear your point of view.

    Here’s how this game works. You pick the decade and the five songs you think prove its the best for music. Leave a comment here and we’ll see what everyone thinks. And vote in the poll!

    Here’s my pick. I dare you to prove me wrong. :)

    With or Without You – U2
    Every Breath You Take – The Police
    When Doves Cry – Prince
    Rock With You – Michael Jackson
    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
