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.

                        1990's : "Smells like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana - wanted to hear it anytime.

                              Let's see...I can't just pick one song for each decade, so I'll just describe for you what the rich tapestry of 80's and 90's music means to me in a few song titles and pictures...

                              1980's:

                              Billy Idol--Rebel Yell



                              Thompson Twins--Hold Me Now

                              Tears for Fears--Head Over Heels


                              1990's:

                              Bjork--Army of Me


                              Filter--Take A Picture


                              Stone Temple Pilots--Plush

                                  Another song that really makes me think of the 80's is the one I have the 7" picture sleeve of as my av right now, The Who's Eminence Front.

                                    80's: "I can dream about you"- Dan Hartman or "Self Control" -Laura Brannigan
                                    90's: "Black Velvet"-Alanyah Miles or weirdly enough "Baby Baby"- Amy Grant (I guess I think early 90's or something)
