And also semi-related to Madonna, The Breakfast Club's "Right on Track." I guess it's not that obscure, with over 255,000 views. But I definitely had forgotten about it & the crazy Pee-Wee's Playhouse-esque video.

Until his recent controversial appearance on Celebrity Big Bother, I hadn't thought about Alexander O'Neal in years.
I liked his duets with Cherrelle, but his single "Criticize" was one of my favorite records.

It's fun to listen to the 80s channel on Sirius and realize that you honestly have not heard a song on more than 30 years. I had that experience recently when they played "It's Not Over (Til It's Over)" by Starship which is an awful, awful song and shouldn't have even been played in 1987. There's a very good reason why it has been forgotten.
Anyway, a forgotten jem that I love is "Twist My Arm" by The Pointer Sisters

Wendy & Lisa, "Waterfall". It was somewhat of a big hit for them but I think it's largely forgotten now, even though it's a lovely song. They did it in concert when I saw in the late 1980s / early 1990s in a more stripped-down version and it was so great.

"Ah, Leah!" by Donnie Iris, 1980. I NEVER hear this song on any broadcast radio stations, during '80s flashback weekends or One-Hit Wonder weekends. However, it was in semi-regular rotation on both the "80 Hits" channel & "Classic Rock Workout" channel (satellite radio) at my job, for a couple years.
I love this song! I think it's very 1980. Sorta reminds of Foreigner, .38 Special's "Hold On Loosely" (has some of those same soaring qualities)....or The Cars? I just remember thinking that Donnie Iris wasn't at all what I expected, the first time I saw this video (having heard the song on the radio).

I hear you, R268... dual Canada/U.S. citizen here but born and raised in the Great White North (and came of age in the early '80s, surprise, surprise!), and it's always been a mystery to me why although some of Canada's Greatest Hits of the time managed to make a big splash south of the border, others languished in seeming obscurity. "Kiss You (When It's Dangerous)" was a beautifully-crafted and superbly-executed piece of '80s art which absolutely deserved better than to be "only appreciated in Canada" (and there are many more examples)... but hey, maybe this thread on DataLounge will contribute to a revival of sorts?! Anyway, speaking of the Great White North... hehehe, here's our Greatest Ever Export (tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek), Canadian supergroup Rush's lead singer Geddy Lee's unforgettable masterpiece "Take Off" (1982), featuring Bob and Doug McKenzie, of SCTV fame). Yeah, yeah, I know the youngsters won't get it, but... well, this was considered fucking hilarious in 1982...

Kitschy, ironic, alt-country-New Wave pop band Rubber Rodeo defies convention and easy classification.

Most know The Waitresses for "I Know What Boys Like" and "Christmas Wrapping", which are great.....but this was the first Waitresses song I ever heard on the radio. Still my favorite.
"I don't want to be an alarmist, panic's not really my style......."

The fabulousness of CHERI - Murphy's Law:
"Murphy's Law," was the name of a number 1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart single by the Montreal, Quebec-based American female dance duo Chéri. It reached the top spot in May 1982 and stayed there for three weeks. The single also reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it peaked at number 39 that same year. Written and produced by Geraldine Hunt and Freddie James, the mother and brother of Chéri singer Rosalind Hunt, the song is based on the sayings of Murphy's Law, in which they told a boyfriend that his good luck had just run out and everything he had owned were being taken away from him. When he realizes what has happened and thought that it wouldn't happen to him , the ladies reply by telling him "got it all together, don't cha baby..." The track is also best known for featuring squeaky sped-up vocals and laughs throughout the song and in its chorus.
Today the song is considered both a Club and an Old School classic by many fans. It would also be a One-hit wonder and a novelty hit for the duo, even though they did have a few minor hits on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart: "Give It To Me Baby"/"Star Struck" (#57, 1982), "Working Girl" (#27, 1983), and "small town lover" (1983). Recently, the song has been featured on Canadian band Chromeo's DJ-Kicks compilation.
