Johnny Hates Jazz – “Shattered Dreams” – (1988)

Whoa, how did this not make our best songs of the 80s list? It should have. This catchy synthpop tune was a top five hit in the U.S. Johnny Hates Jazz (which is a pretty 80s name for a new wave band) were from London and this is the song they’re known for (they had a few other minor hits). Oh, and if you watch the music video I’ve linked to above, check out the bass player because he looks just like Jerry Seinfeld circa 1990.
