Kim Wilde – A Miracle’s Coming
In which necessity is the mother of re-invention.
Frazier Chorus – Typical
Don't bore us, get to the Frazier Chorus.
Kirsty MacColl – Terry
It's one of Kirsty MacColl's greatest songs. Terry's ALL GOLD.
Jody Watley – I’m the One You Need
Category is: dancefloor eleganza. Yes, it's the Morales-booster that is "I'm the One You Need".
Étienne Daho – Week-end à Rome
In which familiarité breeds contentement.
Bright Light Bright Light – Little Bit
Ooh-aah, just a Little Bit: the greatest pop moment of 2016.
Eg and Alice – Indian
1991: the year that wanted to sex you up. Possibly one of the reasons why Eg and Alice never troubled the charts.
Milla Jovovich – Gentleman Who Fell
Film star in Moomin-pop-courtly-love-quite-good-album shocker!
Randy Newman – Falling in Love
Probably the best record ever made about the fuzziness of falling in love.

You're a mid-tempo, mid-eighties filth-fest, I'm a downtown, downbeat guy.

Yes, it is that Running Up That Hill.
Tracey Thorn – Joy
Christmas. It's for the grown-ups really, isn't it?
Billie Piper – Misfocusing
The entire pop career experience squeezed into a little under two years: it's the one and only Billie Piper!
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.
Carly Simon – Share the End
Because nothing says "feel good" like a dose of Apocalypse Pop.
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.
Laura Branigan – Spanish Eddie
Who's for some Vick's and lemon gin?
Belinda Carlisle – Valentine (Remix Edit)
Oh my darling, look my way.
Claudia Brücken – Absolut[e]
Where do Brücken hearts go? The bargain bin, sadly.
Scarlet – Love Hangover
Not that Love Hangover. The other Love Hangover.
