It is a hard one this one, but ultimately OMD had to be No1.

Pretty obvious really, OMD, but there were several great acts in the 80s.



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

U2, Police and Depeche Mode are all very close to OMD.
But I think U2 would be my favourite one, because they had the message.

Although OMD had Messages and the Police had one in a bottle too ...  

I would classify Queen as a 70s act.

Dazzler, i wondered about putting Queen in the 70's, but ultimately their most productive decade was the 80's.

Someone voted for Bananarama...  

Yes, they were fun, and the first "girl band" - but the best 80s act????

Hey that was me  

I went with how many songs I knew and liked from these bands, and they came out on top.

Most of the other bands has only one or two songs I like
