    Hmmmmm, it was a tough choice for me between "Tarzan Boy" and "Catch Me I'm falling" but like Chopper said TaRZAN boy is fun to dance to(though I've never been drunk dancing to it) so Tarzan Boy would have to be my pick.

    Tarzan Boy! It's really different, and it has a great beat. And I used to love all my friends trying to sing along when they were drunk.

    I picked Nena, but it was tough because I really loved "Der Komissar" by After The Fire.

    Wow, now all of the songs on the list have at least one vote, except for Dream Academy's "Life in a Northern Town". Ah, c'mon, someone's just got to vote this one as their favorite one hit wonder song of the 80s...

    A quality song indeed Sarg, and that is the exact piece of the song that is played over the loudspeakers during the day/night Cricket matches in England when someone makes a big play!

    I think its funny that whenever people talk about the song "Tarzan Boy", they always mention the fact that they really enjoy dancing to the song when they are drunk! I guess it just has that beat that makes you want to stagger about!!!

    one hit wonders of the 80s

    I picked der kommissar, its really good and the video is like really weird. after the fires version i have to say is better than falcos. mattew wilders song is really good also and i would probably have voted for safety dance if it was up there.

    I chose Dream Academy's "Life In A Northern Town" - for personal reasons. *wry smile* It's both dear and sad to me.

    I picked When In Rome's "The Promise", because that's such a sweet song.

    I'm happy that someone finally picked Dream Academy's "Life In a Northern Town", as it was the only one that hadn't received a vote yet!!!

    I had to go with Puttin on the Ritz by Taco. I remember watching pop-up video on VH-1 that Taco is actually his real name and not a stage name. I thought that bit of info interesting.

    I Promise by When In Rome would come in as a close second.

    Had to go w/ Baltimora. At the time the song was popular, it was a really fun time in my life. I always look at songs from the point of view of where I was at in my life at the time it came out.

    My vote went to When In Rome's The Promise. *sigh* What a great song. I can't believe how many people have voted and how close a race it is! Wow!
