The one that introduced the medium to most of America, here is "Video Killed the Radio Star," by the Buggles (technically released in 1979, but let's not nitpick, shall we?):

Here is one of my absolute favorite bands from the 80s, the adorable Go-Gos with "We Got The Beat:"
Next up, the little ol' band from Texas, ZZ Top, with "Sharp Dressed Man."
A great song that both fits well among other 80s pop and also blends well with today's AC pop, Joe Jackson and "Steppin' Out."
This song has had renewed fan interest thanks to "The Sopranos." It was a great song in 1981, it's a great song today. Here's arena rock favorites Journey with "Don't Stop Believing."
Finally, to add a bit of hip hop in the mix, here is Run/DMC with their Aerosmith team-up, "Walk This Way."
