Yah, Devomaniac/Justin was too funny, I guess if you go by their "big" Top 40 hits we'll miss out on a great sounding influential band... speaking of "Don't You," also (not) funny how John Hughes films were the "death" sentence [xx(] for so many New Wave bands... OMD, The Furs, Thompson Twins, etc.

In no order:
Promised You a Miracle
Speed Your Love
Someone Somewhere in Summertime
Glittering Prize (or is it See the Lights? I get the two confused...)
I Travel
Alive & Kicking
New Gold Dream
Sanctify Yourself
Kick Inside of Me
Book of Brilliant Things
