Although it was released in summer 1979, Gary Numan's "Cars" feels like a 1980s song, as it pioneered electro music.

The entire catalog of Stevie Nicks, the Police and U2; plus a lot of Cyndi Lauper (especially her album She's So Unusual) and the Go-Gos, but at the top of my list:  everything written or sung by Kate Bush.
