Songs of the 1980s

The 1980s launched the debut of "MTV," featuring music videos twenty-four hours a day. Former Beatle John Lennon was shot and killed in New York City, and Soul/R&B singer Marvin Gaye was fatally shot by his father at his home in Los Angeles.

Singer Michael Jackson released the "Thriller" album and sold over 25 million copies, making it the biggest-selling album in history. Madonna also sold many albums and became the most successful female Pop artist of the 1980s, while 1985's Live Aid Concert brought awareness and raised money to send food to Ethiopia.
