    Voted for "Planet Earth" by Duran Duran. But to be honest, I prefer the early songs of Spandau Ballet.

    Seems Planet Earth appears on both Part I and Part II of this poll, for some reason.

    Well, Friese-Greene and the guys from Talk Talk swayed it for me again.

    Great poll!

    I voted for Planet Earth, although i would classify this song as New Romantic, as opposed to New Wave. But great idea for a poll! Someone mentioned Soft Cell's Tainted Love, w/c for me, is one of the best new wave songs ever!

    Well you know Timbo, Lifes what you make it

    Actually I feel that Spandau Ballet should be on that poll as well given their output during the 80's. Their early hits definitely qualify for this poll!

    Modern English was a great band. I love that song Melt with you. It was beautiful song. It was over played for me when I was dating Duncan my x... He was nuts with that song. But I still love it none the less.

    Had to go with with kim wilde on this one... Another one of my faves is her "you keep me hanging on." I love the synth at the beginning and the band hits especially....

    I voted for "I Ran (So Far Away" by A Flock of Seagulls. Definitely a good tune. "The Look of Love" by ABC comes in a very close second.

    From these choices, I voted for Yaz. Although I liked their songs "Situation" & "Don't Go" better than "Only You".

    I will need to have the terms new wave and new romantic defined, sometimes i get them mixed up, but I really liked all of the songs on the poll and was not really sure if the go-gos were considered new wave as before they became really popular, they were a punk band. I am willing to have my eyes unclouded to see the light..please some one enlighten me..
