I love The Fixx. Their Reach the Beach album is a perfect slice of 80s New Wave pop.

Great band! I like Tin Drum the most. Some of David Sylvian's solo stuff is also well worth checking out.

How'd I miss this thread? I love fruit-cake shit like this. I'll skip whats already been posted. I don't think I saw these ... but maybe they were mentioned??? Sorry if they were .. Specifically avoiding anything death rock / goth / darkwave / post-industrial and trying to stick to 80's sound specifically here ..

BERLIN (fucking BERLIN .. how'd no one get this one yet?)
Echo and the Bunnymen (first 5 LPs .. essential 80's)
Kate Bush (more or less any .. esp hounds of love)
Camouflage (the first LP is timeless)
Avenue (powerful italo disco)
Helen (obscure and great italo disco)
Antony (great italo disco)
Ken Laszlo (italo disco god)
Valerie Dore (obscure italo-disco godess. amazing. get anything)
Giorgio Moroder (good call on the scarface sound track .. the metropolis re-mastered sound track is amazing)
Kraftwerk (duh)
New Order (duh)
Pet Shop Boys (please and introspective are the best .. rest actually kinda suck except a few tracks)
Real Life (send me an angel was their 'hit')
Sugarcubes (duh)

x100000 @ the cocteau twins suggestions
x100000 @ strawberry switchblade and anything rose mcdowell touches

there are endless other obscurities for sure, just tossing in some good basics not yet mentioned. I'm also kinda going with reeks of 80s stuff here, though there was certainly endless amounts of music that is non metal coming out in the 80s

They had an (undeserved) career in the 70ies and (luckily) split up in 1982.
