So yeah another one of those big threads where we just share a bunch of youtube links and talk about how awesome they are.
RULES: Post R&B and Pop tunes from the 80s. By neglected I mean not huge tunes everyone knows rather groups and artists that have been ignored or forgotten in the critical appraisal of the period.

How ahead of it's time is that? Could be released by Rihanna today and everyone would go mental. My favorite though is this:
