If you like music from the 80's you might feel like you are in paradise on your first visit to the 80's music videos website. This website offers more than 1000 music videos from the 80's that are presented in a huge list on the main page.

The music videos are sorted alphabetically by artist and song name. A click on an artist will load the music video on the same page which means that everything is happening on the same page.

So what can you expect from the website? You find all popular (pop) songs of the decade on that website, from A-Ha with Take On Me over Duran Duran's Wild Boys to ZZ Tops ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin.

Most songs are pop songs but you find the occasional hard rock or heavy metal track among the list. Manowar and Megadeath are listed among others.

It is a nice trip back for those who grew up with the songs and a great way for young people to listen to 80's music. The main advantage of this site over going to YouTube directly and searching for 80's songs is the one page interface that provides you with access to all artists and their songs on a single page.

The great thing about this service is that it is still there, unlike other services on the Internet that come and go. You can alternatively head over to YouTube right away to find 80s music there both in their original versions and with original music videos as well as covers of songs.

The list is sorted alphabetically by artist. If you are looking for a particular song name or want to quickly jump to an artist use the on-page find feature of your browser. Just hit F3 or Shift-F3 to display it.

    The warning message about AAC streams when you load streams is because you don’t have the free Orban AAC/aacPlus Player Plugin installed.

      Justin, thanks for the information.

    does this support AAC ? or only mp3 streaming

      I’d say it supports all pls streams but I have not tried that so cannot verify it 100%.

    Thank you Martin for a most informative and viable solution (it allowed me to play streams from a Netherland internet radio station in my WMP)! Continued success to you!

    You must convert file.pls to file.m3u
    because file.pls open with winamp and file.m3u open with wmp.

    Hey, even i can do it, i stumbled through it and it works great! The only instruction advice i will add as i had to figure this out, when the wmp box opens that says save or open the bar on right says wmp click that drop down and select “open pls in wmp” once you do that it will work . Took me quite some time to discover that as i am no computer expert by any means. Having said that, previously i had downloaded codec packages and something about aac. None did any good. This rocks, i listen to a lot of internet radio and a number of them have dropped flash player and getting wmp to work had been a nightmare. So many thanks for this great solution to another problem that Micro-Hell will not even address. Peace- Out

    openplsinwmp came in a zip file. I unpacked it, and didn’t find anything that looks like an executable, and even the files in the “doc” folder were in a format windows didn’t recognize. I’m not stupid. you said it would open effortlessly. It didn’t. This a rabbit hole I don’t want to go down.
