Set adrift on '80s bliss: Name the best songs that sample '80s classics



The '90s weren't all bad. They did give us PM Dawn (formed in the '80s in New Jersey), who in turn gave us Set Adrift in Memory Bliss. The song sampled from Spandau Ballet and frontman Tony Hadley even made a cameo in their video. The song went straight to No. 1 in November 1991.

But PM Dawn wasn't the only act beyond the '80s to sample the greatness of our decade. Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Tone Loc and more all pulled from the '80s.

Is there enough for a top 10 list and a future podcast? Leave your picks and we'll find out.
