Go West – King Of Wishful Thinking

English pop due Go West exploded onto the scene in 1982, turning out hit after hit with songs like 'We Close Our Eyes', 'Call Me' and our favourite - 'King of Wishful Thinking', which you might recognise from the Pretty Woman soundtrack! 

Katrina & The Waves – Walking On Sunshine

'Walking on Sunshine' was the 1985 breakout hit for Katrina & The Waves, and we think it's the ultimate feel good tune. Did you know - the song was originally meant to be recorded as a ballad, but Katrina decided to belt it out!
