    Its pretty bad. I love the 80s and all but after *purchasing* this song and giving it one listen its in the recycle bin. I could see Eddie releasing this tune today for some of his recent movies have even been worse. Perhaps its time for Eddie to take a second stab at a musical career... [​IMG]

    They had a "Cheesiest Song of All Time" call-in poll on my local sports talk radio show this morning. I think the favorite was the Shatner/Nimoy version of "Mr. Tambourine Man". But 80's song? What about that corny Don Johnson ballad that came out right after Miami Vice hit big? I don't even remember the name of it. And that ballad by "soap opera hunk" Jack Wagner would be up there, too--they played that one this morning.

    The song by Jack Wagner is All I Need. One of the first cassettes I ever owned. The ultimate cheese!

    "Somebody's Watching Me" by "Rockwell" (Barry Gordy's son) with special guest backup vocals by Michael Jackson.

    It's obvious that none of you remember "Pac-Man Fever."

    She's Like The Wind by Patrick Swayze.
    I get bonus points for his mullet.

    Don't forget Bruce Willis' "soul" album, including a cover of "Secret Agent Man".

    My personal vote would be for Spandau Ballet's "True". I pray for deafness whenever that is played...

    I actually like the Don Johnson song "Heartbeat". [​IMG]
    No, the cheesiest song is without a doubt Carl Lewis' song "Break it up". Yes, the 80's track star. Here it is, with a cheesy video too (QuickTime): http://www.carllewis.com/video.music.1.html
    Check out the rest of that site for his "acting demos" too. [​IMG]

    Britney Spears' "Baby...One More Time".

    I like 80s music, so I've gotta list something I find cheesy from the 90s. Cheesiness isn't an exclusively 80s thing.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    Right?

    Mike S thanks for the link. That is definetly the worst song (and vid) that I have seen to come from the 80s. Eddie is saved!

    While technically not from the 80's these two songs are supposed to take place in the 80's:

    You Got The Touch
    Feel My Heat

    The movie "Boogie Nights" captured 80s cheese perfectly!

    Didn't the '85 Bears record a single?
