Default There was Talking Heads and the Police and there was everything else.

The two most important bands of that era. All other new wave bands paled in comparison. Yes even Devo, Blondie, and the Cars. Are there any better songwriters from that era than Sting and David Byrne?

Who? I imagine people here are going to say Robert Smith and Morissey and Partridge of XTC and maybe even Ian from Echo and Bunnymen. And none of them have put out anything as good as Remain In Light or Regatta De Blanc or Synchronicity for that matter.
