    1980s : Take On Me, by Aha. The quintessential 80s song.

    1990s: "What is Love?" by Haddaway (You know, the theme to the Roxbury Guys from SNL). Typical of the mid 90s "eurodance" pop sound. "Barbie Girl" is another great example of this.

    1. "U Can't Touch this".
    2. "Ice, Ice, Baby".

    Rap was big when I was in grade 6 (1990/1991) and still not, to my knowledge, in gangsta phase.

    I'm also under the opinion that one song cannot describe an entire decade. A few can, though.

    1980's-
    "Billie Jean," by Michael Jackson (1982, just one of many examples of Michael Jackson's dominance of the charts in the 1980's)
    "Round and Round," by RATT (1984, an example of metal)
    "Take On Me," by a-Ha (1985, an example of a song whose popularity exploded because of a music video, and thus, MTV)
    "Push It," by Salt-n-Pepa (1987, my personal pick for the most '80s song out there)

    1990's-
    "U Can't Touch This," by M.C. Hammer (1990, for beginning the mainstreaming of rap)
    "No Rain," by Blind Melon (1993, an example of the grunge era)
    "The Sign," by Ace of Base (1994, an example of European techno music that was quite popular at one point)
    "Baby One More Time," by Britney Spears (1998, an example of the bubblegum pop music that permeated the industry by the end of the decade.)

    For me, the song that defines the 80s would have to be "Thriller" by Michael Jackson.

    The song that defined the 90s would probably have to be "California Love" by Tupac. He and his contemporaries were the ones who changed music forever...I'm always hearing the influence of rap music in today's music. I hardly hear any grunge influence, and that's fine with me. I never cared for grunge...Never did, never will.
