    Again very tough choices because I love them all! I went with "Kids In America" by Kim Wilde. That is one of those songs I could just listen to over and over again.

    It was difficult for me to decide which one to vote for, as I love all of these songs!!! I finally decided on "It's My Life" by Talk Talk. I could hear that song a million times and never grow tired of it!!!

    Cool

    Can't say it's my absolute fave NW tune, but out of these I went with 'It's my Life' as well...was a toss up between that and ABC's 'Look of Love'

    Depeche Mode for me...what else?

    "Just Canīt Get Enough" is one of the New Wave prototype tracks for me...

    Exactly! Me too Trixter. Course now I pretty much love the whole cd. I thought I was going to have a hard time picking a fav til I saw Yaz on the list. They take it hands down.

    Of this list, I selected "Only You" by Yaz; I actually like the Flying Pickets version slightly more, but the song is lovely and holds a few special memories, regardless the group performing it.

    My true NW fave track? Very difficult to answer that; there were so many great tunes and equally great memories attached to them! Hmm. Possibly something from Depeche Mode (but obviously not "Just Can't Get Enough" which I always found too saccharine and terribly uninspired when compared with the rest of DM's oeuvre). Likely "But Not Tonight".

    "It's my life"... if I have to choose one. "Planet earth" was also a great option. Most of my own favorites were not in the list, that's normal... anyway, I agree with Tvdiva: Depeche Mode has LOTS of songs better than this super-commercial "just can't get enough" (the whole album "music for the masses", for instance...).

    No offense, but none of those on the list...although I like a lot of them very much...

    How 'About some of these???

    --B-Movie: Nowhere Girl
    --Payola's: Eyes of a Stranger
    --The Damned: Alone Again Or
    --The Bolshoi: Please and Away
    --Real Life: Send Me an Angel
    --Icicle Works: Birds Fly
    --Soft Cell: Tainted Love
    --Duran Duran: Girls on Film
    --Yazoo: State Farm

    Just some thoughts, although my list is not strictly "new wave"...

    It looks like I'll have to do a second New Wave favorite poll to please everyone!!! Of course, there are so many fantastic New Wave songs and it's not possible to poll them all. I just chose the songs that are the most popular and identifiable to people!!!

    80's Trivia...

    I Hear YOU! I know there are so many, and those were great choices...not a slight of your choices in the least...I understand you only can list so many in a poll and you pick ones most are familiar with...

    But Planet Earth and It's My Life would be the choices from the list...

    Have a great day Triv! Happy Valentines!

    80's Trivia...

    Can you say Happy Valentine's Day again with that cute southern drawl...? Please ???

    (My sister lives in NC, but being a NY transplant, she doesn't have the whole thing drawl thing down yet! LOL)

    Thanks for considering my suggestions...check out my 80's New Wave MP3 library listing page (although I still have 1,500 uncatalogued in there....may give you some more ideas!) http://javajanesworld.com/library.htm.

    LOL, Jane! Now, I do not have an overly pronounced Southern drawl. I actually grew up in Northern Kentucky, but spent several years living in Mexico and Spain, so the hick drawl never had time to take effect!!!

    I will definitely be checking out your New Wave library, which sounds awesome! Thanks for posting the link, Jane!!!

    Triv,

    Where in Spain did you live? Do tell! (or point me to the thread where you did tell) I did a semester at the University of Valencia in 1983 and absolutely fell in love with Spain, and those cute spanish boys (hence Guancho being a brother-in-arms!) Gosh, the 80's music scene was great in Europe at that time too!

    Kentucky, SC...you can still say it again...for a New Yawka anyone south of Jersey has a cute southern accent! LOL!

    The music scene in Europe during the 80s was primo, Jane. I studied at the University of Salamanca for a semester as well! Fell in love with Spain and going to the discos in Madrid every weekend. Boy, that was fun. Then heading to Barcelona for a bit, before taking the ferry out to Majorca and Ibiza! Oh, what fun!!! Those were the days!
