No 80's listing is complete without Dexy's Midnight Runners and "Come On Eilleen". The quintessential 80's one-hit-wonder.

Adam Ant's stuff holds up remarkably well.  I was a huge fan in high school/college and have seen him (both with the Ants and solo) more than a few times.  I even found an old concert guide from a show a few years ago at my parent's house while visiting. 

It's too bad he's turned into a bit of a loon. He's attempting a comeback but he's very...odd...at times.

Eel, do you use Pandora? Their 80s Pop prebuilt genre station features a lot of the artists that have been mentioned here.

And not Berlin's "Take My Breath Away", Soft Cells "Tainted Love", Europe's "Final Countdown" or Nena's 99 Luftballons" AKA "99 Red Balloons" ? Come on... Eileen. slywink
