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.

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

Even OMD Love?


I based my choice on what I listened to in the eighties. Not much of OMD was played on the radio here, or available in the stores, so I wasn't as exposed to OMD then.

Now with internet it's much easier to find and complete your collection of any artist  , so I'm constantly on the lookout for 80's acts that I only heard a couple of songs of, when I was young.

In the 80`s I prefered Boomtown Rats... but from this list it was Depeche Mode.... even tho I loved Enola Gay since I first heard it, OMD was`nt my #1 then.

So are we voting for what we loved in the 80`s or what we love now from this list? Just in case it`s the latter.... Im going with OMD

The list could have been endless if you think about it Mark, that's why there are the main choices and then you can post your faves to let us know. It works because now we know you liked The Human League.

I ignored OMD, because everybody knows they are great. Went for Duran - seen them loads of times and each one was better than the last!

My favorite act? The Police (although they ran out of steam by the mid-1980's). For the entire decade? Depeche Mode. OMD is in the top 5 of my list.

Now that was a hard one. I LOVE LOTS of 80's bands, especially some of those. Queen, Duran Duran (My 2nd favourite band), The Police, OMD (My 1st favourite band), Erasure and Bananarama....those are the ones a like out of that list, but...I went for OMD in the end...The thought of last year, the fantastic music, the great videos, the really good-looking Paul Humphreys, etc, etc. So, thats why I went for them.

OMD Rock!
