80's style chord progressions

perfect example is this tune, I understand how to recreate most of the 80’s aesthetic but i’m trying to figure out if there’s a certain way to play certain chords like how rnb/gospel progressions are 2-5-1. wondering if theres a system like that for recreating fatty 80’s progressions.

I think that there was a certain scale (or a few) used…not sure what it would be though.
