There are lots of songs from 1982 which I love, but I think my favourite is "Never Been in Love" by Randy Meisner

Another one I really liked was "I Did it For Love" by Harlequin http://www.geocities.com/godeltsihw/canada.PNG (Canadian only hit)

Yeah, that was the song I would've voted for, if given the chance. I voted for Rosanna by Toto. But, I'd pick CC over Toto.

My favorite 82 hit comes from the other poll. It was "Heat of the moment" by Asia.

It's actually a 1982 song.  In the UK, it peaked in the charts in November of 1982 :)

Good choice!  I was going to say "Space Age Love Song" myself.

I'm in the mood to go for:

Ultravox: Reap the Wild Wind

From the list, I voted for

Human League: Don't You Want Me
