What other song was the greatest 80's one-hit wonder?

The 80's are number one...hit wonder! Last month VH-1 highlighted the 100 greatest one-hit wonders, and we dominated with 41 of the best, with 5 in the top ten. VH-1 did a pretty good job, but we can't help but feel a lot of good 80's choices were snubbed. Rather than the usual poll of choosing the best of their best, help us figure out the other best 80's one-hit wonder. There were lots of choices, but we chose a short list of ten to vote on.
