7 The best 12" extended versions from the 80's

Please help me compile a list of the best 12" extended versions from the 80's, that really added something extra to the original song.

PS: Any artist can be added, not just Alphaville

Blue Monday 12" by New Order. Was the anthem of 1983 back in the UK.

Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

you probably don't know this, but it's a killer.
(the band later changed their name to underworld, and went on as a rock band, today rick and karl do electronic music, still named UNDERWORLD):
there are 2 12" mixes of riders in the night, the dub mix and the american club mix. can't decide which one is better. you can check the album version here, probably with the help of

ps. you might know their song "doot-doot", surprisingly featured Vanilla Sky
