25 Amazing ‘80s Albums Everyone Loves



The 1980s were a weird decade, famous for popularizing horrible fashion, odd, chemically-treated and above all big hair and some of the worst music known to mankind. In a sea of horrible and embarrassing music, a number of albums stood out – they were fresh, original and later influenced a whole new generation of musicians.

Those albums were critical and commercial successes, praised and loved by both professional critics and fans around the globe.

We present the top 25 albums of the ‘80s:

1. Bruce Springsteen – Tunnel of Love

Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen has sold around 184 million records around the world, making him one of the best-selling musicians of all time. During his prolific career, Springsteen has won numerous awards, including a total of 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes and an Academy Award. Further, he was honored with places in both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

Released in 1987, Tunnel of Love is the 25th best album of the 80s on our list. It was a commercial success, going triple platinum and ‘’Brilliant Disguise’’ and ‘’Temple of Love’’ made the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“When I wrote the record,” he told Rolling Stone after the album was released, “I wanted to write a different type of romantic song, one that I felt took in the different types of emotional experiences of any real relationship. I guess I wanted to make a record about what I felt.

Really letting another person into your life, that’s a frightening thing. That’s something that’s filled with shadows and doubts, and also wonderful things and beautiful things, things you’ve never experienced before and things you cannot experience alone.”
