It is, but I'll try and put away my anal retentive tendencies and not hold people to that.

Of course it counts!

Ooh, thought of another random 80s one-hit wonder: "Live is Life" by Opus.

"Na naa na na na. LIVE IS LIFE! Na naa na na na. Bobba dop bop bop LIFE!"

Did anyone name "always something there to remind me"?

ETA - What a fucking idiot, I named it. Wow.

How about "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell?

Ah, but Naked Eyes also had "Promises, Promises."

Oops, there's that anal retentive side again.

How about Honeymoon Suite - "New Girl Now"?

Modern English wins because they created the ultimate '80s teen love song: "Melt with You"

Good call on Modern English, Admiral.

I loved that song until everyone rediscovered the 80s at the same time, and it got so overplayed ... including in Burger King commercials.

Ditto Soft Cell's "Tainted Love," although that one still makes me want to sing along.

"Mickey" by Toni Basil. I don't like that song, but a lot of people sure did.

"I Want Candy"?

I admit to a fondness for "Mickey." I never did care for "I Want Candy." Bow Wow Meh, if you ask me.

Nena - "99 Luftballons"

Two of the '80s finest exports

She Blinded Me with Science!

New Radicals are still the winner here, methinks, and not just because I tossed them out first.

I have some bands that had like one minor hit, like Eve's Plumb or The Dambuilders, but, again, I don't think they really qualify here.

See, now I can't even name a song by either of those bands. You're getting too obscure.
