Playlist: Slicing Up Eyeballs’ Top 100 Songs of 1980 (Minus the 5 not on Spotify)

spotify CROP

To coincide with our just-posted Top 100 songs of 1980 readers poll results, we’ve created this accompanying Spotify playlist. As you can see (and hear), the playlist starts at No. 1, Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” and runs through No. 100, The Specials’ “Too Much To Young.” Unfortunately, five of the 100 songs on the list aren’t on Spotify (tracks from Peter Gabriel, AC/DC, Pete Townshend and Dead Kennedys), so they’re omitted.

  1. Just thought ‘that spotify playlist would be great if it weren’t for these AC/DC songs’ .. glad to see they’re not on spotify ;-) .. will turn my office day tomorrow into an aural walk down memory lane!

  2. 1980 fue el mejor año de la historia de la música pop.
