    A few more I can think of;

    Bonnie Tyler - Total eclipse Of The Heart
    T'Pau - China In Your Hand
    Tiffany - I think We're Alone Now (though I guess Girls Alouds' version does run it close and gains more coverage as a result)
    Culture Club - Carma Carmelon
    Westside - Sonic Boom Boy ( a great song no doubts)
    Take my Breath Away - Berlin
    Ice Ice Baby (original version - though I can't recall who sang it first)

    I've got a few of those in my collection.

    Just last week I was looking & found Brother Louie by Modern Talking on Youtube after it popped into my mind that it was a song I hadn't heard for 25+ years.

    Sonic Boom Boy was a similar song suggeted by YT, I remember it being used on an episode of Howard's Way.

    Ice Ice Baby was by Vanilla Ice, though it samples Queen & David Bowie's Under Pressure.

    Sad Cafe - I'm Gonna Keep On Loving You (or whatever it was called)

    Kim Wilde - Cambodia (my favourite KW song, still listen to it)

    Bronski Beat - Hit That Perfect Beat

    Kate Bush - Cloudbusting

    You know, there may be a valid reason why many of these songs don't make it on to radio much these days.

    Jungle life by Tarzan boy. I've never managed to own it so it still sounds really good on the rare times I hear it. Such a feel good song.

    "Sang" is stretching it a bit!

    I never hear Cinderella on the radio.
    One of those glam rock bands I used to like. There was something about guys with long permed hair....

    If you listen out for Tarzan Boy by Baltimora you may hear it
    The only thing to look forward to is the past
