    Everybody Wants to Rule the World. The band Tears for Fears had top 40's in the UK but this was the one hit in the US that was really big: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everybody_ … _the_World

    Also, Wipe Out.

    My favorite would be "In a Big Country" by Big Country. They have a cult following in Europe but just that one song made the charts in the U.S.

    It was "Eves Crush", "O'Town", and "Da Band". If you never heard of these bands, thats my point exactly. (One hit wonders) All were from "MTV's making the band" series.

    I think it was A-ha - "Take On Me". It's one of those songs that you can't help singing along to, even if you can or can't hit the high note. LOL.
