Re: song recomendations please, 80's
I'd say buy 'Duran Duran - Greatest' cos, the Durannies are going to be huge in '04! just like '84 my man!
You'd like 'The Smiths' me thinks, maybe look at the bands that R.E.M and The Smiths influenced, like Ride, or The Sundays, or James.
If you want the essential 80's experience though, I'd start with....
A Flock Of Seagulls
Lotus Eaters (Actually they kind of have a R.E.M. ish' thing going I suppose)
Tears For Fears
The Thompson Twins
All have done atleast 1 cool track, and most only the 1.... heheheh!, also you'll need 1 luminous Yellow sock, and 1 luminous Green, big rule of the 80's... never wear matching luminous socks.

The 80's weren't really my thing, and I lived through all of them. So most of the following is my friend's words and list:
Yes the 80's were before your time. Most of the recommendations you've recieved are fine. But here is some additional required listening:
Soft Cell: Tainted Love
Pet Shop Boys
Tears for Fears
Aha: Take Me On
Huey Lewis and the News
Men without Hats
Echo and the Bunnymen
Men at Work
The Buggles: Video Killed the Radio Star
Edit: Remembered another - UB40

Some of the best albums of the 1980's:
"Horse Rotorvator" by Coil
"Closer" by Joy Division
"Computer World" by Kraftwerk
"Black Celebration" by Depeche Mode
"Daydream Nation" by Sonic Youth
"Isn't Anything" by My Bloody Valentine"
"Power, Corruption, and Lies" by New Order (although be sure to listen to the original UK tracklisting, WITHOUT "Blue Monday", which was only released as a single, and was never supposed to be part of the album)
"Doolittle" by The Pixies
"The Head on the Door" by The Cure
There ya go! Now you can WIN!

Crowded House - Crowded House
Temple Of Low Men - Crowded House
Temple is available on iTMS, but only 2 tracks from CH are. If you're looking for their biggest hit, "Don't Dream It's Over" (a.k.a. the "Hey Now, Hey Now" song), there's a live version from Neil Finn (the now-solo lead singer) from his 7 Worlds Collide CD on iTMS.

Duff-Man says....the Stranglers "Aural Sculpture" and "Feline" are great early 80's disks.....and also Killing Joke's "Nightime" and "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns"......oh yeah!
Duff-Man computes with...Mac Pro 3.2GHz 8 core 18GB RAM + MacBook Pro 2.5GHz C2D + 16GB iPod Nano + iPhone 4S 32GB...Oh Yeah!

Visage were mucho underrated IMHO, especially the 'Anvil' album... that was laced with some serious synths and guitar work... but what do you expect from the Uvox and Magazine main men! Visage started it all....
I'd also add Midge Ure to my original '80's list, 'The Gift', and 'Answers' are 2 storming solo albums. and the guy is a genius guitar player

some lesser known and big bands from the end of 70s/early 80s:
Red Rider/Tom Cochrane
Guns N Roses
AC/DC...cant forget that
k that's old -> 800Mhz iBook G3, White iPhone 3G, Canon SD1000 Digital Camera and a 24 of beer!
It's better to burn out than fade away
