Fame, Flashdance and Footloose. They are three of the most iconic films of the 1980s, with sequences that have embedded themselves in our brains for decades now. Why who can forget the students of New York City’s High School for the Creative and Performing Arts stopping midtown traffic dead with a dance routine? Or a dancer being doused with a bucket of water to cool herself — and the audience down? And let’s not forget watching a group of teens rebelliously kicking off their Sunday shoes to dance. None of these movies were musicals per se, but their songs — and hugely successful soundtracks — continue to be massive hits to this day. So for this week’s poll we want you to make a very difficult choice by picking your favorite then telling us why you voted the way you did in the comments!
What a feeling!
