"Stainsby Girls" by Chris Rea.
"Fools Parade" by Michael Stanley Band

And they're both on itunes.

I picked them up on vinyl singles as a kid at a jumble sale. And now we are re-united. :)

'I'm Not Scared' by Eighth Wonder (starring Patsy Kensit).

And this one's really shameful: 'Each Time You Break My Heart' by Nick Kamen.

LOL and I thought I was bad .... we have similar tastes Muzza

Over & Over by Madge - 7" Vinyl - the 1st Madonna's record I bought - recently found out was only printed in Italy and it's worth 500 quid YIPPIEEE

Sex over the Phone by Village People - believe it or not my dad bought it for me when I was 10yo - knowing is ignorance in pop music I think the shop assistant was taking the mikey - though is sooooo funny now

Stella Stai - Umberto Tozzi (tacky but loved it)

Superman + Olympic Games by Miguel Bose'
Gipsy Hill Rocks!!!

These shameful tracks are something I would never normally talk about. I only have the courage to fess up here due to the anonymity of the internet! (Although I did drop 'I'm Not Scared' during a DJ set earlier this year and surprisingly it went down well with the kids...)

Crikey. Where to start?

Driving home for Christmas - Chris Rea. Actually, if you dig deep, Chris Rea crops up quite a lot - in fact, he's almost, dare I say it, not really fit for this thread at all... :ph34r:

The entire back catalogue of Adam and the Ants, natch.

Um... must be admitted that one of the very first albums I ever bought (and hence still have a sneaking liking for) was Bonnie Tyler's 'Secret Dreams and Forbidden Fire'...

Camouflage by Stan Ridgway was the second record I ever bought.... :o

I soon graduated to hip-hop, drum and bass, indie and rock. Thank god.

...I...just...don't...know...

I thought Wham! had earned pop legend status by way of Georgey-Porgey. God, what am I saying?

That Camouflage track is an absolute classic, it has to be said. Very popular in my office.

Human Racing by Nik Kershaw...another pop legend though, surely? :blink:

Oh yeah and I like The Seekers and I'm not scared.

St Etienne "He's On The Phone" i like that as well. And I really like pre-Beatles British pop music.

Yes -What are you saying - When did pastel shirts and trousers and espadrills become the stuff of pop legend

To be fair, I was thinking more along musical than sartorial lines. I'm no big fan of pop but I think much of their output in the eighties had a reasonable degree of artistic merit...
