The 10 Most Terrifyingly Inspirational '80s Songs

music has published a list that's right up my alley.  They call it The 10 Most Terrifyingly Inspirational '80s Songs and here it is.

  1. "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor
  2. "You’re the Best" by Joe Esposito
  3. "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins
  4. "Jukebox Hero" by Foreigner
  5. "Don’t Stop Believing" by Journey
  6. "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler
  7. "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar
  8. "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen
  9. "Wanted (Dead or Alive)" by Bon Jovi
  10. "The Final Countdown" by Europe

I think it's a very strong list.  It's very hard to argue against that top three, in fact, check out this Friday Five I did back in 2005.  It's pretty similar, only I actually put "You're the Best" ahead of "Eye of the Tiger", but that's just me.

Where the hell is Mark Safan's "Win in the End?  Now, that was inspirational.
