Maybe the next time 1980 rolls around I'll have the resources to include a longer and, especially, less AM-heavy list.
But for now I'm glad that my preliminary list contained 60-ish songs, way more than I expected out of just the one year.

Better prepare for 1981 now I guess.

If you want, you can add your honorable mentions from your 60-ish preliminary list, and I can add them with a tied rank.

We'll also start a recommendation thread for 1981 where we all can post some lesser known gems!

Long story short: I deleted everything not in my T25.

Fair enough! As someone who is prone to long-winded posts myself at times, I understand!

Looking forward to your list for 1981!

So I had the great idea to look up if I had missed any great songs from Dutch soil, considering AMs shortcomings.
Luckily I didn't. My biggests suspects were from 1979 and 1981.
Heart attack 1: the 1981 song showed up as 1980 on Wikipedia (while it isn't).
Heart attack 2: the source I was using tried to make me believe Sara (from 1979's Tusk) and Driver's Seat (not even a '79 but a '78 single) were from 1980.
Heart attack 3: I COMPLETELY missed Fischer-z's So Long (which is from '80 I believe). I'd say put it at #14, move Kurtis and friends down and bump off Queen (with the very fitting name).

Eligibility question:
Is a song with a re-recorded or remixed re-release still only eligible in it's original year? E.g. Blue Monday (And BM 1988).

I think re-recordings should be fine, such as "Blue Monday 88".

I can't find a song called "Wyspa Smoka". I do see a song "Planeta Smoka" from the album Ona przyszła prosto z chmur. Is that the song you'd like to include?

I'll see once 1988 comes around.

To be sure: Did you catch the part about 'so long'?

Oh yes! I'll share the Google Sheet into which I'm entering the results, so you can see the full 1000+ list.

I'll probably post the top 300 or so as a post, too.
Posting the Top 300 would be awesome! Lots of diversity in these lists.

Of all the decades that came after the fifties this is probably the one I know least off. But 1980 is along with 1987 a year I have a lot of favorite songs in:

1. Talking Heads – Once in a Lifetime
2. Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart
3. Bruce Springsteen – The River
4. Bob Marley – Redemption Song
5. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark – Enola Gay
6. The Jam – Going Underground
7. Dire Straits – Romeo and Juliet
8. John Williams – The Imperial March
9. AC/DC – You Shook Me All Night Long
10. The Fall – Totally Wired
11. Peter Gabriel – Games Without Frontiers
12. Joy Division – Atmosphere
13. The Blues Brothers – Everybody Needs Somebody to Love
14. Bow Wow Wow - C30 C60 C90 Go
15. Frank Sinatra – Theme From “New York, New York”

These first 3 are All Time Top 100 for me, with Redemption Song close.

That was fast.
Glad to see Nightporter hitting Top 50 and helping So Long making the T300 cut.

The Great Curve seems to have some major fans, considering it's points per vote avg. and no AM inclusion. With the next song not on AM being found 70 spots later, at 77.

Awesome lists! Sad that I can't add them! Love to see more love for "Same Old Scene", one of the very best Roxy Music songs, IMO. Is that song list in order?

It looks like the top results don't really change. Better depth this time, though. It's amazing to see something get 20 votes and still not clear the bar.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the decade poll to songs that have fewer votes in the year polls, but still qualify for the decade poll, such as "The Great Curve."

I'm not a big fan of Dio honestly but Heaven&Hell (track) might just be the peak of pure heavy metal. Bit of a shame it is so low here, but it's the highest track rated with less than 6 votes so I'll take it as a positive.

I actually didn't read the OP and figured rules are the same... quite surprise to see the results after that! Anyway I guess this has rejuvenated interest in these decade polls. 80s are not really my forte but it's the golden age of Polish music so I will provide some cuts from it in the results.
