Best Brit/Euro 80s Band

By chance I came across a bunch of Dr. Robert/Blow Monkey clips on YouTube. Man, how many catchy songs did they produce? I'm counting what should have been six #1s. At the very least.

Blow Monkeys "It Doesn't Have To Be That Way"

Most of the comments people have left seem to be in regards to Dr Roberts perfect teeth.

Good call Mike, i have that CD, Blow Monkeys were one of the best of that era, anyone remember Hipsway?? 'the honeythief' ?i think they were scottish, they did a great CD, like the BW's very catchy and commercial.

Thank god for Youtube.

Another good one Lee. Forgotten talent.

Speaking of YouTube greatness, there are 2 reasons to watch this footage of Amy Winehouse and Paul Weller do “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” on Jools. You will see reason 1 at about the 00:03 mark:

Once again, Weller is just crackers live.

I will happily admit to a strong liking for Lloyd Cole and the Commotions. Apparently, they had a hard job getting a producer for their third album, "Mainstream" because they were regarded as sounding a bit samey. If true, that's bonkers. The whole point of a producer is to do something about that. A lot of fine songs they put together.

Listening to the Commotions now I hear a lot Tom Petty/Crowded House coming through in them.
