    Default 80's songs you never hear on the radio these days

    As an extension of an excellent previous post I thought I would post my contribution as I get so fed up with certain radio stations who have a "Haven't heard it lately" slot and then they go and play a song that is frequently heard on the air-waves.....makes me seeth!! The following were all Top 20 hits and in my opinion excellent tunes but you never hear them these days and some are not available on Spotify/I-Tunes:

    "Something in my house" Dead or Alive 1987
    "Murphy's Law" Cheri 1982
    "Drowning in Berlin" Mobiles 1982

    "The Walk" The Cure 1983
    "The Freeze" Spandau Ballet 1981
    "Strange Little Girl" The Stranglers 1982
    "Money Go Round" Style Council 1983

    "Don't Mess with Doctor Dream" Thompson Twins 1985
    "Could've Been" Tiffany 1988
    "Twist in my Sobriety" Tanita Tikaram 1988

    "I've been losing you" A-HA 1986
    "Where were you hiding when the storm broke?" The Alarm 1984
    "Just a Feeling" Bad Manners 1981
    "Do they know it's Christmas?" Band Aid II 1989
    "Chance" Big Country 1983
    "Hit that Perfect Beat" Bronski Beat 1985
    "Army Dreamers" Kate Bush 1980
    "Christian" China Crisis 1983
    "Is it a dream?" Classix Nouveaux 1982
    "My own Way" Duran Duran 1981
