    So many great tunes in these lists. Just proves that the 80s wasn't that bad - Simple Minds, Cure, Smiths, New Order...The list goes on...It's really hard to choose but here's mine:

    Simple Minds - Someone, Somewhere (in Summertime) - the true magnificence of this band's early years is finally getting the right attention these years.
    New Order - Blue Monday - the 12" instrumental went on heavy rotation night after night in my teens.
    The Cult - She Sells santuary - Goth going pop!
    The Cure - A forest - just great.
    Fields of the nephilim - Moonchild - this band emerged after the first wave of Goth bands and remained one of the best.
    The Mission - Tower of strenght - The build up of the tune is Zeppelin worthy
    U2 - Pride - people hate them these days, but The unforgettable fire was seminal.
    The Smiths - This charming man - The Beatles of my generation!
