Nu Shooz – “I Can’t Wait” – (1986)

If you like synth-heavy 80s tunes, this track is for you. It’s a dance song all the way, hitting #1 on the Hot Dance Singles chart while only managing #3 on the Hot 100. If you asked me to name a song to play at an 1980s dance club, I would either say this or a particular song by Chaka Khan. As 80s as this song sounds, the music video is 80s-horrid and very bizarre. It was Nu Shooz’s first charting single and by far their biggest.
