1980s Top 40 Wildcard Round

In the final Ultimate Top 40 (scheduled for late July), 41 classic tracks will be eligible. We've already crowned certain winners which peaked at No.21 - No.40, while those which won the No.11 - No.20 rates still have one more obstacle to face before they can guarantee their place in the final. But which tracks undeservedly failed to reach the UK Top 40 at all during the 80s?

For this round, nominate (as many or as few as you like) singles which peaked outside the Top 40 (41-75) during the decade. You'll have a little over two weeks for this. After that, the Wildcard Rate will take place, and we'll throw in another contender for the Ultimate 80s Top 40.

The only rule is that your nominated tracks must have reached the Top 75. So no album tracks please. (If a track didn't chart in its own right but appeared on an EP which did, then please specify)

Good luck.

I'll post my nominations (if no one else has nominated them) at the end.

Only the one that didn't chart, John. But I certainly approve of these choices!:
