Easiest choice was Dancing in the Dark over Like a Virgin, but I have a feeling that's an unpopular opinion here.

Prince - When Doves Cry
a-ha - Take on Me
Bruce Springsteen - Born in the U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen - Dancing in the Dark
Prince - Purple Rain
Echo & the Bunnymen - The Killing Moon
The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?
