    There was as much radio and MTV drek as there was in the 70s (only radio drek) but also a lot of excellence.

    C'mon. The Smiths. Everything they ever did should be on a "Best Songs" list, but "How Soon is Now" is perhaps one of the greatest songs ever written! No foolin'.

    Squeeze wrote some great poppy stuff, but lyrically they are interesting and somewhat deep.

    Joy Division. Fantastic stuff. Try listening to Young Marble Giants. Clock DVA. Great dark stuff out there, but you just have to hunt. It isn't all the GoGos. :-) Although in that vein, Tracy Ullman wasn't that bad.

    Paul Simon's Graceland came out in the 80s and it has some wonderful tunes on it.
