3 letters people: O M D !

"Electricity"
"Enola Gay"
"Souvenirs"
"Talking Loud and Clear"
"Locomotion"
"We Love You"
"La Femme Accident"
"So In Love"
"Secret"
"Dreaming"
"Forever Live and Die"

and one of my all time favorites

"Messages"

And I much prefer Thomas Dolby's "Europa and the Pirate Twins" and "Wind Power" to "She Blinded Me With Science" . . . in fact, if I never heard "She Blinded . . . " again in my life, I'd be perfectly happy and content.

She Blinded Me With Science is one of those 80s songs that's still too played out for me. It never came back around for me in that "ooh, I totally love this song" way. Ditto I Melt With You and Tainted Love.

Ooh, thought of another one that's often overlooked:

Peter Schilling - Major Tom

I second the OMD rec, too. Electricity and Enola Gay are my two favorites.

I tried to get Major Tom by Schilling, but the only version on iTunes is in German.

No, tourist, you need GOOD 80s songs. (Crowded House and U2 excepted from that list above, naturally.)

Starship? PHAIL.
