    I had to go with "I Ran (So Far Away)" by A Flock Of Seagulls. After all, I do consider it one of my favorite 80s songs of all time.

    Looks like we have a three-way tie between It's My Life by Talk Talk, I Ran by Flock of Seagulls and Planet Earth by D2, with Depeche Mode's I Just Can't Get Enough closing in...

    Re: Favorite 80s New Wave Song:

    I really did like Look of Love by ABC. They were what i thought to be the greatest band of the 80's. They didn't have as many singles or albums as alot of other artists, but they did leave a lasting impression.

    Plus, they were a british band who had constant success in both Canada and the USA, which was not an easy thing to do in those days

    I went for "Planet Earth", by Duran Duran. I love almost every song on that list, but I can never ever get sick of Planet Earth!

    Re: Favorite 80s New Wave Song:

    Although it's not on the list, I'm casting my vote for 'Space Age Love Song' by A Flock of Seagulls.

    Brian Wilson once described the Beach Boys song 'Wouldn't It Be Nice' as a "teen-aged symphony to God". When I listen to Space Age Love Song, I'm left with the same feeling. For me, the song evokes a powerful flood of positive emotions and endorphins unparalleled by any other song (except maybe "Wouldn't It Be Nice").

    I'm not sure why I respond so positively to the song, but for me, Space Age Love Song is my anthem of the 1980s, and a reminder of everything I loved so much about the decade.

    Re: Favorite 80s New Wave Song:

    This was a hard one, but I'll have to choose "I Melt With You" followed by "I Just Can't Get Enough". While "I Melt With You" was a bit commercial for a Mod type band like Modern English but I still like the song. And I loved it being in "Valley Girl" and what that movie stood for.

    Re: Favorite 80s New Wave Song:

    It would be better to list any Alphaville or Bronski beat at the list...

    but my vote goes to Talk Talk as usual...
