'down under' by Men at Work.

I didn't post a link so you'd know which song I was talking about. I know you all know it. Posted the link because you should never miss an opportunity to listen to it.

More classic 80's but on the lighter electro side:

Tainted love - Soft Cell
Fade to Grey - Visage
Being Boiled - The Human League
Smalltown boy - Bronski beat
The Race - Yellow
Just can't get enough - Depeche mode
Pale Shelter - Tears for Fears
Temptation - New Order
Only you - Yazoo
Wonderful life - Black (I think the chorus is currently the backing track to a Emirates/Dubai Inc. ad)
