80s Romance

I was born in 1980. Depending on who you are, that either makes me seem really old, or makes me seem like I'm just a baby. I know that I am more a "child of the 90s" than a child of the 80s, in the sense that  I was far too young to remember much of what happened in the 80s-- or to be in to the music or fashion of the 80s. But nonetheless, I have an affinity for the 80s, especially when it comes to the music. Thus, the purpose of this post.  I give to you some of the best "romantic" songs of the 1980s. This list is given in no particular order.  What would you add?

1. Lost in Love - Air Supply
2. Open Arms - Journey
3. Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon
4. Never Tear Us Apart - INXS
5. Eternal Flame - The Bangles
6. Suddenly - Billy Ocean
7. Every Time You Go Away - Paul Young
8. Waiting for a Girl Like You - Foreigner
