Definitely Duran Duran. And a little bit of KISS, but i'm not sure how 80's they were.

My Dear Friends,

My wife and I joke about our still being children of the 80's. If I started listing everything from the 80's that I listened to (and still do listen to) I would be here all day. :p

Don't forget Adam Ant.

Crowded House hit big in '89 (as I recall) with their first album so they count. Or, just go back to Split Enz.

Yep, first album appeared in 86/87 but they morphed out of the ashes of Split Enz.

i'm a big fan of some of the more ridiculous euro 80s stuff... and "italo." check out some ZYX italo compilations, and see 80s synth dance music being 1000x more epic and outlandish than in the US!

also like lots of the factory records and factory benelux stuff... and the C86 genre.
