Okay, so the 80s was a decade that was packed to the rafters with cheesy songs. Take Sinitta - "He's got a big red GTO!" and Sabrina with her wet t shirt charms "Boys, boys, boys! I'm looking for a good time!". I could make a list of 100 cheesy 80s songs. Virtually everything about the 80s was naff - the fashion, the hairdos, the music, the movies. But they have been classed as 'vintage' due to our unending nostalgia. Saying that, we have to appreciate cheesiness as an inherent part of the 1980s, I definitely think the 80s have been the cheesiest decade for music thus far. Legitimately good bands like Duran Duran and Tears for Fears shone like beacons during the 80s and enjoyed deserved success. However, there was too much cheese mongering from one hit wonders which muddied up the charts and created infamous classics. I was a child of the 80s and the songs below represent the nadir of cheesiness that I can remember. Some of them are good cheesy, some are bad cheesy, but one thing is sure, you will come out of the article stinking of Parmesan with terrible songs in your head. So sit back, relax, and take a journey back to the 80s. It is always fun to revisit and please list your own songs below.
