Modern English

Ask anyone if they've heard the song "I Melt with You" by Modern English and they will not only nod aggressively but they'll also be able to sing the entire chorus for you. Then ask them to name any other Modern English song or any of their four albums, and they will blankly stare at you.

Sure Modern English was a one-hit-wonder but to their credit, "I Melt with You" stands firmly as a sparkling icon of the New Wave 80's. That song would always end mix tapes that I made for friends and you absolutely could not go to a party from 1982-1986 without hearing it... probably twice.
