I was never a true New Wave fan, but an underground fan, I liked (still do) New Order (Joy Division), The Smiths, The Clash, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Depeche Mode.

I lived in Virginia where we only received the mainstream bullshit. Any underground radio that came into town was forced out.

If I had to pick a catchy New Wave tune it prolly would be "Everybody Wants to Rule the World".

Bow Wow Wow featuring a jail bait Annabella Lwin. I loved this video when I was a teenager.

I was into a bit of this stuff when I was younger, so there's a lot of memorable ones I guess.
Savethewave always had a great playlist of this stuff.

Kon Kan - I beg your pardon
Pet Shop Boys - It's a sin
Erasure - A little Respect/Breath of Love(a jam to this day)
New Order - Subculture
omd- if you leave
real life - send me an angel
Tapps - Burning with fire

The Cure(especially from 87) isn't new wave.

Eh, just tired and cranky. Kind of meant that more as New Wave was pretty dead by about 85ish it'd seem
