For while we wait, the songs already guessed:

1. Only You: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgDKtLPp46s (No instruments were used, it's purely vocal harmonies)

2. Hong Kong Garden: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-l9GQJRl9Y (Timelessly cool, even has a mic drop)

3. No Particular Place to Go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaT5JplqDbk (I'm sure he's related to Jim Carrey)

4. Let's Dance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNLXxDMxe18 (The ultimate dance-floor-filler anthem of it's day)

5. Let There Be Drums: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zC9okWm8A6o (I still consider this the most hardcore track ever made)

6. My Brave Face: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ty8NTNj6JI (I still had faith in McCartney even as his 80s comeback began to fade rather dramatically as we approached the 90s, you can kinda see why here)

7. A Taste of Honey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ3ClvUD7uE (The Beatles changed their version of this song in reverence to this instrumental version which was currently charting, Bilk was an uber cool clarinettist and sometimes singer)

8. Pictures of Matchstick Men: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAkcSd5l9Qg (Remember when all the indy bands had a violinist!)

9. For Her Light: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Foc_VyAFRA (There's nothing else like this, though I did prefer their other single from this album, Summerland, as did the general public)

10. Throwback - Bankstatement (Iranu)

Bankstatement was a one-off band and album of the same name spearheaded by Tony Banks of Genesis.

And here it is in all it's glory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvRJIS1eAKE (I don't remember this at all, I think I played the B side a few times)

Reg with the 3 point win! Congratumalations!
