Obscure 80's one-hit wonders (plus a couple from 1979)

This my first ever post in this community, so I thought I could share some lost and obscure 80's that have hit the Top 40, and even those that charted within the Hot 100 only one time.

Nolan Thomas - "Yo Little Brother" (1984, #57) http://www.sendspace.com/file/1gnqfe

Tycoon - "Such A Woman" (1979, #26) http://www.sendspace.com/file/dqgj53

Vandenberg - "Burning Heart" (1983, #39) http://www.sendspace.com/file/iik279

Andy Taylor - "Take It Easy" (1987, #24) http://www.sendspace.com/file/qdoh69

Charlie - "It's Inevitable" (1983, #37) http://www.sendspace.com/file/uneg9h

Benjamin Orr - "Stay The Night" (1986, #24) http://www.sendspace.com/file/ica0w5

Diesel - "Sausalito Summernight" (1981, #25) http://www.sendspace.com/file/dftpjn

Face To Face - "10-9-8" (1982, #38) http://www.sendspace.com/file/vdb065

The Kings - "Switchin' To Glide/This Beat Goes On" (1980, #43) http://www.sendspace.com/file/wqkh5n

Blue Mercedes - "I Want To Be Your Property" (1988, #66) http://www.sendspace.com/file/ocurip

Saga - "On The Loose" (1983, #26) http://www.sendspace.com/file/kj0myr

Agnetha Faltskog (Anni-Frid of ABBA) - "Can't Shake Loose" (1983, #29) http://www.sendspace.com/file/xi8pgp

Balance - "Breaking Away" (1981, #22) http://www.sendspace.com/file/ldfeon

Device - "Hanging On A Heart Attack" (1986, #35) http://www.sendspace.com/file/sa01y0

Scarlett & Black - "You Don't Know" (1988, #20) http://www.sendspace.com/file/3fn2px

JoBoxers - "Just Got Lucky" (1983, #36) http://www.sendspace.com/file/o2tm72

Honeymoon Suite - "Feel It Again"* (1986, #34) http://www.sendspace.com/file/4scs59

* Although Honeymoon Suite charted 3 times in the Hot 100 with "New Girl Now" (1984, #54), "What Does It Take" (1986, #52), and "Love Changes Everything" (1988, #91), "Feel It Again" was the only song to hit the Top 40, so as far as US Top 40 hits go, Honeymoon Suite would be considered technically a one-hit wonder.

Thank you, Wikipedia!!
