M – “Pop Muzik” – (1979)

This synth-heavy tune was released in 1979 and it screams “1980s.” The song is a mixture of synth-pop and new wave and was one of the first songs to successfully combine the two into a massive hit. The formula would be repeated ad infinitum throughout the 1980s – but this song really set the tone for the decade to come. And the lyrics are bizarre, but everyone knows the famous: “New York, London, Paris, Munich – everybody talk about pop muzik!”
