My Top 10 New Wave / Alternative Rock (Pre 1990) Songs

| | Comments (0)

There's no real rhyme or reason to my list. Just was trying to put together my favorite songs from the 80's, ones that defined "New Wave" or "Classic Alternative Rock" for me. These were the songs that I loved to listen to on 120 Minutes, and to this day are part of my standard rotation on my iPod.

10. (1981) Depeche Mode - Just Can't Get Enough

9. (1987) The Sugarcubes - Birthday

8. (1983) U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday

7. (1987) Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning

6. (1987) R.E.M. - The One I Love

5. (1982) Modern English - Melt With You

4. (1980, 1988*) Joy Division - Atmosphere

3. (1979, 1986*) The Cure - Boys Don't Cry

2. (1985) Hüsker Dü - Makes No Sense At All

1. (1985) The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?
