Lionel Richie, with his smooth voice and infectious rhythm, made us all want to “party, karamu, fiesta, forever.”

And who could forget “Making Love Out of Nothing At All” by Air Supply? This song was the epitome of 80s power ballads. With its soaring vocals and dramatic instrumentals, it was the perfect song to play when you were trying to impress your crush with your sensitive side. Plus, it had one of the most epic saxophone solos in music history.
