So it's basically like any compilation of 80s music that we've heard thousands of times? Then I would suggest something like this .. Most of these guys had more than just one hit in the 80s, so you can choose something else from them.

Alphaville - Forever Young
Sandra - Maria Magdalena
Bon Jovi - Livin' on a prayer
Madonna - La isla bonita
Talk Talk - It's My Life
Nik Kershaw - The Riddle
Cutting Crew - (I just) Died in your arms
Yes - Owner of a Lonely Heart
Men at work - Land down under
Falco - Der Kommisar
The Clash - Rock the Casbah
The Bangles - Walk like an egyptian
Billy Idol - White Wedding
Lenny Kravitz - It ain't over 'til it's over
David Bowie - Let's Dance
Wham! (Or George Michael) - Careless Whisper
Foreigner - I want to know what love is
Kenny Loggins - Danger Zone
The Pointer Sisters - I'm So Excited
Sabrina - Boys
Tears for fears - Everybody wants to rule the world
Nena - 99 Luftballoons
Toto - Africa
Whitesnake - Is this love
Kylie Minogue - Locomotion
Limahl - Neverending Story
Frankie goes to Hollywood - Relax
Kim Wilde - You keep me hanging on
Run-DMC - It's Tricky
Whitney Houston - How Will I Know
Midnight Oil - Beds are burning
Rockwell - Somebody's watching me
Grandmaster Flash and the furious five - The Message


I could suggest stuff like Dio's Holy Diver, but it's too good for such a list. Or - you could just get a "hits from the 80s" CD.

OK. This is where I risk what little street cred I have left and list what's in my 80' Pop music folder:

Haircut 100 - Love Plus One
Billy Ocean - Carribean Quean
Icehouse - Hey Little Girl
Pet Shop Boys - West End Girls
Cutting Crew - I Just Died (In Your Arms Tonight)
Madness - Embarassment
Rufus & Chaka Khan - Aint Nobody
Bananarama - Cruel Summer
Joe Jackson - It's Different For Girls
Junior - Mama Used To Say
Johnny Hates Jazz - Shattered Dreams
Duran Duran - Planet Earth
Roxy Music - Same Old Scene
Mr Mister - Broken Wings
The Vapors - Turning Japanese
Living In A Box - Living In A box
AHA- The Sun Always Shines on T.V
Raf - Self Control
Belouis Some - Imagination
Orange 'Juice' Jones - Walking in The Rain
Sophie B Hawkins - Right Beside You (maybe 1990 this one?)
Wet Wet Wet - Wishing I Was Lucky
Kim Wilde - You Keep Me (Hanging On)
Robert Palmer - I Did'nt Mean To Turn You On
The Passions - I'm In Love (With A German Film star)
Nu-Shooz - I Can't Wait
The Knack - My Sharona

and I love every single one Especially The Passions track which is quite possibly in my top 3 all time!
