ooh...it takes one to know one! :p

Yes, Duran Duran are essential, the earlier the better. And Arcadia, for that matter.

If we're going all-out '80s pop you can't forget Thompson Twins, Bananarama and the Pet Shop boys.

T'Pau for power ballads!

GBFH

'so red the rose' is an excellent album, every song is great:

there's waaaaay to many, but first ones that come to mind that I didn't see in the thread:
AHA-sun always shines on TV/hunting High and low
The sisters of mercy-Alice/temple of love
Pet shop boys-In the night/always on my mind/it's a sin
Prince _Purple rain/Alphabet street
New model Army - green and gray
Front 242 - headhunter /no shuffle
I forgot the guy's name ( :D )found it : Peter Schilling - Major tom
bananarama - venus/cruel summer
the bangles -eternal flame/walk like an egyptian
nena - 99 luftballons
2 belgen - lena
arno - oh la la la

*JR*
Oct 11th, 2004, 12:20 PM
the bangles -eternal flame/walk like an egyptian
nena - 99 luftballons
Did you mean Nena's German version with that name, or her English 99 Red Balloons? (Still great after with lyrics like "Everyone's a Captain Kirk, Everyone's a super-hero" and that sensuous :drool: "...and let it go" @ the end). :yeah: (A peace song that I'm sure JustineTime "CC" - Considers Communist). :p

Re. the Bangles, Manic Monday is "simple, but super sweet". (Though Bob Geldoff (and his Boomtown Rats') ode to a massacre :eek: I don't like Mondays is catchier, IMO).

Bob :worship: (most famous for LiveAid, of course) also did our "Philly theme song" with that great chorus "... you and I are here to stay, in the town that rocked a nation, Phil-a-del-phi-a P-A".

Another addition: Vacation by the Gogo's
