Say what you will about the 1980s. They were corny, they were ridiculous, they were obnoxious and somehow grim — but my god they gave us some killer movie soundtracks. We went into the danger zone, we believed in the power of love, we had the time of our lives. And now, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to determine: what IS the best film soundtrack from the 1980s? And we need YOUR help to do it!
Below find a list of 100+ notable film soundtracks from the 1980s. (You can also take the poll by clicking here.) Some of them are instrumental only, but most of them contain those unbelievably catchy pop songs still stuck in our brains 40+ years later. Did we miss your favorite? Add it in the provided field and we may discuss it in the episode! Then send to your friends and have them chime in on their favorite soundtracks. The more votes we get the better the bracket will be!
The poll will run until January 19, 2022. Make sure to submit your answer by then!
The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed in an episode of Season 5 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast. Find out more at greatpopculturedebate.com.
