Erasure – She Won’t Be Home

Look, we can argue about whether this is technically a hit or not until the cows come home but it might just be THE GREATEST CHRISTMAS RECORD EVER. So, um, there.

Cyndi Lauper – Change of Heart

Amazing pop stars at the top of their game in not-disappointing-in-the-slightest collaboration shocker! It can only be Cyndi Lauper and the Bangles.

Prince – D.M.S.R.

"DanceMusicSexRomance" - it's Dan's go-to Prince tune (and also his to-do list for Saturday nights).

Fruits of Passion – Kiss Me Now

In the scramble for limited chart spaces someone always gets left behind - so while their contemporaries raced ahead, Fruits of Passion never really got off the starting blocks. Which is, as we shall see, a massive shame.

Kylie Minogue – Turn it Into Love

Fun fact! This was probably the song that started off the whole Into the Popvoid concept. I've been bitter about Turn it Into Love's non-single status for 28 years.

Talk Talk – My Foolish Friend

They may have been label-mates with Duran Duran, but while Le Bon and co. jetted off to tropical climes for their videos, Talk Talk got a Super Saver to Halifax. Amazing.
