10cc - I'm not in love Not really familiar with the other one.

Madness - One Step Beyond Something very cheeky about it.

The Knack - My Sharona Just a bit mental.

The Carpenters - Please Mr Postman Reminds me of working in Eddie Rockets

Looks like it

Had to go check because it's one of my nominations here and I thought that maybe I'd got the date wrong.
