This is my least favourite period for music, but there have been some crackers from the 'hangover' decade. I make no apologies for omitting 'New Romantics', such as Duran Duran, OMD, The Cure blah blah...

1) The bitterest pill - The Jam
2) Let love rule - Lenny Kravitz
3) Tempted - Squeeze
4) Town called malice - The Jam
5) Somebody Else's Guy - Jocelyn Brown
6) Everday I write the books - Elvis Costello
7) Wishing well - Terence trent D'arby
8) Oblivious - Aztec Camera
9) Fields of Fire - Big Country
10) Cuddly Toy - Roachford

Blancmange - Living on the Ceiling, gutted their 12" has been pulled from RSD2014. Only one I can think of at the moment but I don't really think in terms of singles so it's an odd one for me to bring to mind, especially as I wasn't buying records at that time.

I only ever bought 12" singles in the 80's, so my Top 10 is based on 12" singles. This covers a cross section of what I was listening to at the time, and its a shame I couldn't include a couple already mentioned (Tempted and Living On The Ceiling)

Herbie Hancock - Rockit

Animal Magnet - Welcome To The Monkey House

Level 42 - How Water

New Order - Blue Monday

Grandmaster Melle Mel & The Furious Five - White Lines

Simple Minds - Don't You

Cameo - Word Up!

Dynamix II Ft. Too Touh Tee - Just Give The DJ A Break

Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer

Talking Heads - Once In A Lifetime
