    Cool

    Out of those, gotta go with 'I Can't Wait' They're also somewhat in the Freestyle category with some of their music, so gotta represent

    I went for Nu Shooz - I Can't Wait.

    I didn't realise that they were Europop, I always seemed to think they were Canadian for some reason.

    Nu Shooz.....I can't wait. It reminds me of Tuesday nights down at "Jerry's".......25cent drafts.....$1.50 pitchers. They had the best sound system.....especially for the 80's. Later on in the evening...everyone would be totally plastered and they would get up on the tables to The Bird by......Morris Day and the Time (?) (Hope I'm right on that one) Right after that....we'd get crazy with Billy Idol's MONY MONY (C'mon...get laid get ******) I'll just censor myself if you don't mind.

    I went with 'I Can't Wait' by Nu Shooz. I thought 'Tarzan Boy' was a funny song, though. Are you sure the other three were released in the states?

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?

    I voted for Baltimora's "Tarzan Boy". We used to try and sing that song in school. It was a favorite on the bus to games too! Ahhh, the memories!!

    I voted for "Tarzan Boy" as well. I only recognized that song and "I Can't Wait". The others do not ring a bell to me. Maybe if I heard them.

    Hmm, Pop Muzik by M - I've never really thought of that as 'Europop' before.

    I was kinda thinking more like the song that you used to hear on holiday in Europe and then bought when you got back home.

    Hiya Prefab, thanks for the input!

    I agree with you on 'Dolce Vita' by Ryan Paris - it got my vote too.

    Not sure that 'Goombay Dance Band' is really Europop, more of a slow samba song?

    And the reason why I didn't include Opus was because I loathe it......how about you?
