I vote for ”When the Love Breaks Down” for the second time in a tiebreaker.

Also vote for ”The Smiths”.

Not sure about Wham/Cohen. I’ll listen tomorrow if the match is still undecided.

If the Wham/Cohen match is still undecided I, with some hesitation, vote for ”Make It Big”. It’s very uneven but ultimately more fun than it’s competitor.
