    I would buy Everybody Have fun tonight in a heartbeat!

    A few suggestions:
    Tainted Love - Soft Cell (it would, however, be incredibly easy song)
    Take on Me - A-Ha

    OP...definatly enjoyed your list! Those songs would be fun to play, especially with a party theme or something.

    I would be shelling out money for every single song on that list if they ever came out as DLC.

    Well done.
