David Bowie – "Starman" (1972)
"There's a starman waiting in the sky He'd like to come and meet us But he thinks he'd blow our minds There's a starman waiting in the sky He's told us not to blow it 'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile He told me Let the children lose it Let the children use it Let all the children boogie La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la"
Bobby Brown – "Every Little Step" (1988)
"I can't think too straight, I'm all confused You must've put a thing on me Because there aren't no words that can explain I'm livin' in ecstasy And you can best believe, I got ya back You never have to feel no pain 'Cause I'd dedicate my life to you You'll never look for love again No matter what your friends try to tell ya We were made to fall in love And we will be together, any kind of weather It's like that, it's like that Every little step I take You will be there Every little step I make We'll be together"

Trans-X – "Living On Video" (1983)

Alphaville – "Sounds Like A Melody" (1984)
"It's the definite show Our shadows resting in the moonlight It's so clear and bright in your eyes It's the touch of your sighs My lips are resting on your shoulder When we're moving so soft and slow We need the ecstasy, the jealousy The comedy of love Like the Cary Grants and Kellys once before Give me more tragedy, more harmony And fantasy, my dear And set it alight, just starting that satellite Set it alight The ringing of your laughter It sounds like a melody To once forbidden places We'll go for a while"
Howard Jones – "Things Can Only Get Better" (1985)
"Treating today as though it was The last, the final show Get to sixty and feel no regret It may take a little time A lonely path, an uphill climb Success or failure will not alter it And do you feel scared, I do And I won't stop and falter And if we threw it all away Things can only get better Whoa whoa whoa-oh-oh whoa-whoa whoa-oh-oh"
Men Without Hats – "The Safety Dance" (1982)
"Say, we can go where we want to A place where they will never find And we can act like we come from out of this world Leave the real one far behind And we can dance Or sing!"
