Hmm well I wouldn't label them as 80s as such, the majority of their catalogue was written, released, and performed in the late 70s after all, but couldn't resist giving them the vote because of the sheer beauty one can extrapolate from some of music's most melancholy moments. - mjgass
Despite only their pneuma is still with us in the form of New Order, this band has to be one of my biggest influences and sure is for many other. Radiant guitars, powerful beats and the poetic ingenious of Ian Curtis was the cry for change that inspired the 80s.
Can still hear their influence in today's dance music. How were they left off this list this long?V 1 Comment
Seriously how could you have forgotten them? You are the best thing, my ever changing mood, Paris match with Everything but the girl singer's... And, Everything but the girl is the next one I am adding yuk!
Another gray band that is missing from you list. Missing, is the best song probably (and yes it was released early nineties) but the first truly famous song when all is well, was released in the eighties
Tracy Thorn -- amazing
I love EBTG, and yes, they formed in 1982. But they weren't able to make it big until the 90s.
Nena is not the "99 luftbaloons" only. Nena is much more than that and still going strong (2014). Just a small example - "Willst du mit mir gehn" from 2005. Beautiful album! But this is about the 80's. And she did begin in the 80's with of course 99 baloons. I was a kid back then and I had the first two albums on cassette which I was listening all the time. And still do from time to time.
Awesome band. Reshaped the 80s.

Sal Solo had one of the most unique voices in pop. Is it a Dream still resonates even now...
Ooh I Love em... and I think that I was the only one who did among my friends...
Would shed my skin for you...
If the tragic live concert shooting had never happened these would have without doubt been the best 80's band ever.
Their early career spans the 80's and although labelled controversial by some they're saying it how it is really. Still loving their folk rock melodies.
