Alice by the Sisters of Mercy
Another vote for The Drowners, that whole era with shoegazing and early Stereolab was a great time for music.

I was going to put Alice but then remembered it was their second release. The Damage Done was first.

Probably qualifies as one of the best ever 'one hit wonders' too.

Still sounds great.

in reality Zuit suit was their first single (also a great tune) as the Hugh Numbers

Pedantry abounds with Who admirers. Originally they were The Detours (pre-Moon), then became The Who before a new manager changed their name to The High Numbers. After Zoot Suit bombed they went back to being called The Who.

This video of OMD performing Electricity live at Drury Lane in 1981 is worth watching - not so much or the performance but the clips of the crowd dancing, which come in after about 1min. Literally, the most '80's thing' you will ever see. As someone who spent much of this period at concerts like this, I can really appreciate the awful moves and the awful clothes
