What ones do you remember as being absolute corkers?

Please dont say Katrina and The Waves or Nena as I shall have to leave the thread.

Thank you

One of the all time greats, can't remember whether it's 80s or not but I don't care.

Slightly pre-80s but a corker nonetheless.

Got to have Siouxsie in there.
