Finding a synth sound?

Hey all,

So I'm looking to find a synth sound similar to that used in 80s records. I've no idea what I'm looking for but theres a distinctive pad sound used in a lot of those records.

I'm listening to How Will I Know by Whitney Houston and I'm trying to find a sound similar to that.

Does anybody have any ideas where I'll get something like this?

Thanks,
