24. “I Melt with You,” Modern English (1982)
This English band put out several albums, but it never enjoyed nearly as much success with any single that it did here. “I Melt with You” was an 80s’ new wave/early alternative favorite that made grade school and high school girls swoon. As with many songs on this list, heavy MTV love helped out. So did its inclusion in the Nicholas Cage-vehicle Valley Girl.
