Thank you. I thought that list was pretty lame (no offense tourist )


And yes, that General Public song was cool. Check out some English Beat as well, like Mirror In The Bathroom, ...

It's something I got when I was 16 and just re-imported. I love the Kim Wilde and Bananarama songs though. And who doesn't love Lady In Red??

I can't believe there has been no mention of Huey Lewis and the News! Patrick Bateman would murder you all!
Check out "The Power of Love" and "Hip To Be Square"

Also:
New Order - Blue Monday
Culture Club - I'll Tumble 4 Ya & Karma Chameleon
When In Rome - The Promise
Toni Basil - Hey Mickey!
Paula Abdul - Straight Up
George Michael - Faith
I have to mention: Europe - The Final Countdown
Eddy Grant - Electric Avenue
The Knack - My Sharona
Yes - Owner Of A Lonely Heart
Fine Young Cannibals - She Drives Me Crazy
(See this video for the best version of the above song.)
Robert Palmer - Simply Irresistible & his cover of Mercy Mercy Me/I Want You (which was 1990, but we can let it slide...right??)
Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart
Mike + The Mechanics - All I Need Is A Miracle and also The Living Years
Lionel Richie - All Night Long (All Night)
Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al
The Vapors - Turning Japanese
Prince - When Doves Cry, Kiss, 1999, I Feel For You
Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up and Together Forever
Rockwell - Somebody's Watching Me
Van Halen - Jump

Reiterating: Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, The Police, Peter Gabriel

You can't go wrong with Madonna or '80s Michael Jackson either.

I'd rather hear Chris DeBurgh's "Don't Pay the Ferryman."

But I'm reeeeeeally picky about what 80s ballads I tolerate. There aren't many of them.

I LOVE The English Beat!!!!

And Mirror In The Bathroom is cool, but it's ALL ABOUT "I Confess"!

That was the song I played before I left for EVERY law school final exam! (Don't ask me why. I'm OCD like that! )

Darling, I confess, yes, I've ruined three lives
And I didn't care, until I found out one of them was mine

I didn't mention Huey Lewis & The News because, well, I just don't like them

Talk Talk's original of "It's My Life" stomps the shitty No Doubt version into the floor.
