Absolute celebrates the 80s
Absolute 80s has joined up with MTV Networks UK and Ireland to find the Greatest Song of the 80s.
Voting started this week and the winning song will be announced on the digital station on the weekend of August 21st and 22nd.
It will be announced on Absolute 80s and television channels VH1, Viva and MTV Classic.
“The 80s was the decade when over-crimped and over hair sprayed hair was a thing to applaud, rather than a thing to recoil from in horror and a time when a series of iconic music moments were born. This will truly be a nostalgia trip searching for the best song of the decade!” said Absolute 80s DJ Christian O’Connell.
Vicky Harnetty, Marketing Manager, MTV Networks UK & Ireland said: "We're delighted to have teamed up with Absolute 80s for this initiative. Partnership marketing is a great way to target a shared audience – particularly across two powerful media platforms. As a fellow music and entertainment brand and leading digital broadcaster both in the UK and internationally, the station truly understands our audience and shares our passion for music – both new and old!"
