I would not place Phil Collins in the pop genre, he is rock.
Although i lost touch with Queen pretty much after News Of The World - this at the time got me re-ignited.
Queen - Hammer To Fall.
Ian Paice's skin and stick work was great on this offering...especially as the world at the time was obsessed with a skinny guy with flowers hanging out his ass shouting 'Meat Is Murder'.
Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers.
Def Leppard - Let It Go
Things were shifting fast...guys with flowers hanging out their holes dressed in Gloria Vandebilt..but these brought some order and put manners back in the music world:
Bryan Adams - Run To You.
Whitesnake - Here I Go Again.
ZZ Top - Tush.
Twisted Sister - Under The Blade
This band quickly grew from pop pap to grown up music:
Talk Talk - Talk Talk.
Talk Talk - Living In Another World.
The zenith for me...
Talk Talk - I Believe In You.
As a 'serious' rock dude I am not a big lover of 80s 'pop' music but 2 songs that I do like from 1985 are-
1. Phil Collins & Phil Bailey- Easy Lover
2. Tears For Fears- Everybody Wants To Rule The World
