Thompson Twins – “Hold Me Now” – (1984)

The Thompson Twins weren’t quite a one-hit wonder – but this song was much bigger than their others. This is one of those great new wave grooves that the 80s pumped out seemingly endlessly and an iPod Must Have for any true fan of 80s music. And I feel that I have to respect, for whatever reason, any song that manages to successfully incorporate a xylophone. It hit #3 in the U.S. and #4 in the U.K.
