Madness is great ska band! "Our House" was their only hit. They do sound very 80's but some of their other songs have a more of ska-influence. I think No Doubt was influence by them. I would like to to share with you guys these wonderful lyrics from Madness called, "The Sun and the Rain"

Its raining again,
Im hearing it's pitter patter down.
Its wet in the street
Reflecting the lights and splashing feet,
Nowhere to go,
And nothing I have to do, have to do.

Its raining again,
I follow the christmas lights down town.
Im leaving the flow
Of people walking all around,
Round and round,

I hear the sound of rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.

Just walking along,
My clothes are soaked right through to the skin,
I haven't a doubt, that this is what life is all about,
The sun and the rain.
Scraps of paper washing down the drain.

I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.

Its raining again
A crack in the clouds reveals blue skies
Ive been feeling so low(low)
But now everything is on my side
The sun and the rain.
Walk with me fill my heart again

I hear the rain falling in my ears
Washing away the weariness like tears.
I can feel my troubles running down,
Disappear into the silent sound.

I feel the rain falling on my face
I can say there is no better place
Than standing up in the falling down
In so much rain I could almost drown.

Here in Canada, it was MuchMusic. My dad claims he was the very first in the city to have it. (Dads always want to be cool, especially in recollection after the fact.) I fell in love with that station...I remember visiting his house and just being glued to channel 33, which it still is today.

One of the first videos that really gripped me during that time was Shout by Tears for Fears. It was another one that scared me a bit with it's uniqueness. Roland seemed really angry about something, which I found strangely appealing.

I swear, you're reading my mind! I'm watching that video right now! They were way ahead of their time as a band.

There's been a lot of Tears for Fears talk on this site lately, actually, which I think is a good thing.

I've got "Goodbye Song" on my SpaceMoon list, and it's a lesser known Tears track, but I think it's amazing.

I had no cable until early 90's, so, videos were something I saw at Grandma's house up in Mass. I was mesmerized and it's hard to separate some of the 80's music from their videos.....which is not a good thing, but, it is what it is.....videos were different then...not saying better, just different....a little less worried about the attention span deprived, I guess. And, one out of every three videos had a white horse in the 80's.

I miss being able to watch videos. I'm pretty sure I could get VH1 Classic if I upgraded to digital cable, I don't know if I can justify the cost right now.

Someday, my precious videos ... someday.

Vh1 Classic is pretty good.

I miss the old MTV2, actually....they played a lot of good shit....I found the Doves and Elbow through M2. Those days are gone.

D'oh - how could we all have forgotten Erasure???

I love me some Erasure. And I also love me some Depeche Mode - particularly the live 101 double-album. It's got all my favorite versions of those great 80s songs.

Oh, hell yeah. The title track alone is sublime. Not to mention the awesomeness of More Than This.

Good call!

Beautiful song. The guitar reminds me of a cross between Echo & The Bunnymen and Dire Straits. Speaking of ETB, they were a very late discovery of mine...thanks to the reportedly weird GibsonGirl, and Interference. They could very well be the best band of the 80s...certainly the best band many people have never heard. I'm not quite sure why that is. They had, and still have, a unique sound and style. I'm really looking forward to their new album.

One of my favs:

I've never understood Depeche Mode.

I'm a pretty big Echo fan. I do not like everything GG likes, but, I'd always listen to something she recommended cos I respect her tastes. I've liked Echo for a long time, though.
