Spoiler alert. Here’s what topped the Flav network’s 936-hour, totally rad talking head countdown, premiering Monday at 9PM EST.

5. “When Doves Cry” – Prince
4. “Billie Jean” – Michael Jackson
3. “Hungry Like The Wolf” – Duran Duran
2. “Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Def Leppard
1. “Livin’ On A Prayer” – Bon Jovi

Can’t wait to hear what Hal Sparks has to say about Dexy’s Midnight Runners! Those overalls! Oh my!

Don’t like the Top 5? In fairness, we must mention the results were decided by an online survey. But we all know how VH1’s producers are more than happy to swap #80 for #8 if someone’s manager starts complaining. Or did you not know that? Now you do!

Tell us YOUR top five ’80s songs. And don’t go all indie on us …. We know you love you some “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”
