The Community's Rock Band: Pop - Day 5! Pick your favorite 80's One-Hit Wonder!

RedBaron45RedBaron45 Road Warrior
edited April 2009 in Your Ultimate Setlist
Congrajulations to "The Monkees - I'm a Believer" which won the last thread.

Please pick your favorite 80's One-Hit Wonder.

Starting today, theme threads will be very common.

----------------------------------------------

The Selist:

The Monkees - I'm a Believer
The Police - King of Pain

----------------------------------------------


Important Things!:
This is NOT exclusive to modern pop. For example, a vote for Elton John or a vote for Paramore are both exceptable votes. Try to vote for songs that would be heard on the radio, as opposed to a b-side or a more obscure song. Pop is an indefinate genre and I plan on being pretty leanient.

Voting rules are here.

Don't pick any songs from other setlists. Try to vote for more popular songs by the band.

You may not vote for:
Anything already on the setlist

    A-Ha actually had two top 40 hits, I forget what the other was called though. So I don't know if they count. But, obviously, they are best known for Take on Me.

    They had 18 top 40 hits in the UK :p, with Sun Always Shines On TV as their only number 1.

    I still think they should stay in the list though, mainly because it's the song everyone knows by them.

    Wow, I didn't realize they were so succsessful in the UK. Anyway, the Sun Always Shines on TV was the second US hit I was thinking of.

    Would I be allowed to vote for "The final countdown"?

    Not sure whether it falls under pop or not.

    This song should be unavailable in regular World Tour mode, but instead can only be unlocked after playing it as the last song in the Endless Setlist. That would be sooo epic.

    lol at how many of these threads were made.

    Oh and Europe was most definitely not a 1-hit wonder. Neither was Rick Astley.

    You have a point there.

    Together Forever is just as much a hit as Never Gonna Give You Up~
