I don't know why I wanted to do this, but it seems to me that we have now reached far enough away from the 80's that people are really starting to use samples and what have nots from the music of that decade.
The use of these 80's songs are no more prevalent than in the world of rap. Here some examples...
Flo Rida - Right Round.
Slim Thug - I Run
Rick Ross - Push It

As a child of the 80's and a fan of Hip Hop, I kinda enjoy this stuff. Take from it what you will.
