It wouldn't be '80s week without a fashion retrospective of the best, craziest, most accessorized dare-to-wear styles of the gaudiest decade in the last 50 years.

It began with the death of disco and ended with the birth of grunge, but along the way the world enjoyed pit stops in baggy sweaters, boxy suits, shoulder pads, pleather vests and leather jackets, lace gloves and sky-high hairdos.

You could spend time checking out this Wiki How on how to indulge in your favourite '80s trend, or you could take your cues (and trigger your own fashion flashback) from the musicians in the gallery above. Get all the looks and listen to some of these musicians' best songs, including selections from Madonna, Rush, Corey Hart, Blondie, Celine Dion, Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Boy George and more.

I loved "Papa Don't Preach"! The string arrangement, the subject matter and Madonna's 'look' was quite dramatic for pop music at the time.
