Don't Go - Yaz Report Abuse
For the longest time I thought a man sang this song, until I saw the video recently and realized that the lead singer is in fact a woman. Now I appreciate the song even more, because this chick really has some amazing vocals and a truly distinct voice.

Once in a Lifetime - Talking Heads Report Abuse
The Talking Heads really encompass what is good about the 80s. An eccentric mix of creativity and weirdness, the Talking Heads always kept you on your toes. Same as it ever was ... Same as it ever was ...

She Blinded Me With Science - Thomas Dolby Report Abuse
This song was kind of strange, but you can't help but love the video where Thomas Dolby is hanging out in what appears to be an insane asylum and there's a guy with a white lab coat who keeps repeated "science!" Ah, the 80s.

Chains of Love - Erasure Report Abuse
Erasure's brand of super upbeat pop is infectious, and Chains of Love is probably one of their most popular songs, although they have plenty of great hits to choose from.
