Get some samples of the Linn lm-1 drum machine, that was used a lot in the 80s, or oberheim dmx, old roland, seq circuits .

Then some analog polys or plugin emulations..... Prophet 5, jupiter8, cs80, juno106, oberheim obx, etc
A minimoog and arp odyssey would work too.

You don't need all of them, but they are all good for the 80s synthpop stuff

If you have a fast cpu it might be worth getting u-he diva synth, you can get some old sounds like the above synths.

Hope that helps

Thanks a lot for ideas , but I can create that old style . I have some "almost" finished demos with vocals and tons of VST , samples of synths too. Mostly , I need better motivation, better ideas for songs, different hands with arrangements, different ideas for composing.   


Here's is my first fight with high pitched chorus:



More movie style .. now song is more advanced with vocals and it has great intro ... 





Above, another demo with bad vocals (it's just a demo) ....


Oh, I am not talented with making lirycs ...


I know, that demos are nothing special, so sorry for yours broken ears :P . All these songs have 100% 80's instruments (from Linn drumm till Emu emulator II, Roland d50, some Korg synths and others). All instrumentals made in Renoise (forever :) )


I create project  : Fairlight (tribute to CMI synths and old demo scene cracking group, and... I like that word :P ), but recording vocals,making music,lirycs,arrangements is fun and terrible too :P . That's why I can't finish anything :)


Regards ;)
