i really love songs from 80ties like

A-Ha - Take On Me
Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse Of Heart
Opus - Live Is Life
Quiet Riot - Cum On Feel The Noize

and others...but for me it is quite hard to search for more songs like these, because i simply dont know this era and i dont know any source where i can find more...so i try you here

One of my favourite albums period hasn't been mentioned yet. A relatively obscure band who had a couple minor hits is XTC. Probably their best known songs are "Making Plans for Nigel" and "Skylarking" - neither of which rate very high in my books, nor do they sound like anything from their masterpiece album called Black Sea. They never recorded anything else that comes close.

Frankly, I'm a little surprised no one has mentioned The Cure. "The Lovecats" is a great little slice of pure 80's cheese.

However, the best non-metal of the 80's was coming from bands like the Dead Kennedys and Black Flag. Canada's DOA gets an honourable mention.

if you look for the actual video to that song (along with "I Wanna Rock"), it features as the asshole antagonist the guy who played Douglas C. Neidermeyer in "Animal House" - who basically rehashes some of his movie lines as the overbearing father... and Dee even recites a couple lines from that flick at the tail end of the song, "You're all worthless and weak, now drop and give me 20" )

Man, same with me. I love 80's glam rock/metal. Some of my favorites:

Skid Row: I remember you, 18 And Life
Twisted Sisters: We're not Gonna Take It, I wanna Rock.
Quiet Riot: Thunderbird, Metal Health, Cum On Feel The Noise
Motley Crüe: Shout At The Devil

Similar songs close from the 80's:

Sweet: Ballroom Blitz (70's)
Skid Row: In A Darkened Room, Wasted Time, Quicksand Jesus (Album "Slave To The Grind, from 1991).

There is!

It's all about glam, anyone who listen 80's rock/metal like Skid Row.
Also, I didn't relized that when I commented. I will fix my previous post.
