The Police - Message In A Bottle
Hate this band and hate Sting.
Depeche Mode - Strange Love
They have some real masterpieces. I don't remember this one though.
Michael Jackson - Beat It
Hard to think about it without remembering Weird Al Yankovic's "Eat It." If I were to pick an MJ song, it would be "Billy Jean"
Van Halen - Jump
I remember buying this album and then selling it to a used records shop, I hated it so much. The only song I liked from it was "Hot for Teacher," and that's mainly for a great music video.
Billy Idol - White Wedding
A legitimate masterpice.
Men At Work - Land Down Under
Good one.
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams
If I never hear it again, it would be too soon. There are only two songs I am sick of hearing more than this one: "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Hotel California."
Tears For Fears - Shout
This one's alright.
Billy Joel - We Didn't Start The Fire
Good one, but I am a big BJ fan.
U2 - New Year's Day
This is their only good song.

All the others I haven't heard.

I was in the USSR in the 80s. My list would have some Euro favorites, like Modern Talking and Sandra, plus Soviet pop hits.
