I want to know what is, in your opinion, the biggest and greatest Synth Pop masterpiece of the 80s.
Here is my Top 5:

1. Daryl Hall & John Oates - Out Of Touch

2. Foreigner - Waiting For A Girl Like You

3. YES - Owner of a Lonely Heart

4. Paul Young - Come Back and Stay

5. Icehouse - Hey Little Girl

Damn I was gonna reply to this when I got home... 4 days ago...

Anyway! I dont really listen to synthpop all that often but when I do I go on youtube and tune in the GTA Vice City Flash FM Radio! it is mixed with pop Rock aswell but to me it never gets old to me. But on of the song that does stand out to me is Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder - Together in Electric Dreams

I have no idea why, but these guys put out one single album and then the group broke up. Some of them went on with their individual projects, but none of them had such a cool sound Device had.
I've found this band the old school way, by digging through the vinyl discs on the market and buying several which I've liked the cover of. Boy, was I in for a treat. I didn't expect this:


Yes, I've posted the whole album, because the whole album is that good. It is an impossible one off of a record, IMO, and I have no idea why it is so obscure and has never been featured in any game I know of.
But, well, moving on. Let me introduce to you next: one of the best cantopop songs ever. This is the kind of music that moves me, that inpires me. The music that makes my heart beat and the blood in my veins run.


And here's an example of the same kind of music, but on english:


And one more... Ugh, these songs are so good, damn it.


Finally, I want to finish with something unusual. So I pick a song, which is, technically, not from the 80's, but Blondie is straight out of that decade, and I think this is one of her best "comeback" songs, which mixes now and yesterday just right:
