469 I'll Wait - Van Halen
470 Mad About You - Belinda Carlisle
471 Gold - Spandau Ballet
472 Do You Really Want to Hurt Me - Culture Club

Love this song, it has good and catchy lyrics and the music video for it is amazing as well. and I also love the reggae in the background in the song. Boy George was such a good singer in that song.

473 The Look of Love - ABC
474 Working for the Weekend - Loverboy V 1 Comment
475 A Groovy Kind of Love - Phil Collins
476 Turning Japanese - The Vapors
477 Don't You Want Me - The Human League

Such a huge hit in the early '80s. The intro tune is especially addictive. However, the lyrics bring out a slightly creepy feel about it "...You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry". Still, one of my favourites.

One of the best songs of the 80s no way it should be so low on the list the synth in this song is amazing

478 The Cutter - Echo & the Bunnymen
479 Call Me - Spagna
480 Do They Know It's Christmas? - Band Aid
