The Vapors - Turning Japanese
Gary Neuman - Cars
Toni Basil - Mickey
Soft Cell - Tainted Love
After the Fire - Der Kommisar
Thomas Dolby - She Blinded Me with Science
Jack Wagner - All I Need
Nena - 99 Luftballons
The Firm - Radioactive
Mountain - Mississippi Queen (a personal fav)
those are some of my faves but also Rock the Casbah is cool and Night Ranger only had a few hits.
Thomas Dolby is great, Aliens At my Buick and Astronauts and Heretics
are two FANTASTIC albums...gah, radio sucks, they determine what will be a one hit wonder...tsk tsk, such great music goes unheard
So true, really the whole industry does this (radio stations most always play the songs that have been officially released). I always wonder why may favorite songs off CDs don't get released and played.
