top man either that or Journey - Faithfully, one band that never really made it in England but were massive in the States, saw them just before they broke up in Boston -- Fantastic

i don't get why alot of things did'nt make it in the U.K... YET ! - heaps of classics were overridden by stuff that was only 1/2 as good !

can anybody answer this one !  :knuppel2:

personally, i think it's because in the UK, tastes are more eclectic and less MOR than in the US...hence the success of such diverse acts as say Spice Girls and at the other end of the spectrum, say, Nirvana (obviously just examples)...

also, because the US is so big, the musical tastes vary so wildly from region to region, an example the early punk scene that emerged in NYC area (Ramones, Stooges, Blondie etc) was, although crap compared to UK scene, 10x more likely  to be heard in London than in Nashville...

I can't argue with that analysis.

The list of US acts that were big in the UK before their homreland caught on to them is huge and includes Jimi Hendrix; the Doors; Blondie; Pixies; Nirvana and in recent years the Scissors Sisters.

From the list I'd go for Careless Wisper, (although I'm almost sick of this song having listened to it about a trillion times). . .  But IT IS a classic and a landmark.

My minimum compilation would include:
Careless Wisper - George Michael
Madonna - Live to Tell
Martika - Toy Soldiers
Cindy Lauper - True Colours
Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
Power of Love - Laura Branigan
Forever Young - Alphaville
I Want to Know What Love Is - Foreigner
Eternal Flame - The Bangles
A Different Corner - Wham!
I Should Have Known Better - Jim Diamond
It Must Have Been Love - Roxette
Show Me Heaven - Maria McKee

. . . its impossible to stop.  The list of beautiful love songs we had the honour to listen and dance to during the 80's is hudge.

Everybody will have there own favorites but i think it depends if you were a teenager in this decade for me  1982 i was 16 years old and without a doubt the best love song from that year and probably from the decade
was ABC - ALL OF MY HEART  :)

Of that list I picked Carless Whisper (with Slave to Love a close second) but if I had to chose my fav love song from the greatest decade, it would be Hunting High and Low by A-ha... Harkets vocal tones on that song are outstanding!!
