    I would have to say for me it would be the following:

    1980's: Tina Turner's (What's love got to do with it). I don't know why but I think its because of the music video which had a real 80's look. So everytime I hear that (great) song, I think of the music video, which automatically makes me think of the 80's.

    &

    1990's: Green Day (Basket Case). I was in middle school, and wasn't really a fan of the alternative/punk rock music genre yet, but friends of mine were fanatics over the new craze that was Green Day (Dookie album). Honestly it was pretty catchy even to a big hip-hop fan. It just symbolizes the 90's.
