Need 80's Mix Help

This is what I have so far...

Disk 1

Blind Mellon - No Rain
Bruce Hornsby - Just the Way It Is
Don Henely - Boys of Summer
Extreme - More Than Words
Forienger - I Want to Know What Love Is
Guns and Roses - November Rain
Jesus Jones - Right Here, Right Now
Mr. Mister - Broken Wing
Poison - Every Rose Has Its Thorns
Police - Every Breath You Take
Scorpions - Winds of Change
Smashing Pumpkins - Landslide
Talking Heads - Once In a Lifetime
Tears for Fears - I Want to Rule the World
U2 - WIth or Without You

Disk 2

Billy Idol - Eyes Without a Face
Cars - Drive
Chris Issak - Don't Wanna Fall In Love
Cutting Crew - Died in Your Arms Tonight
Don Henely & Bruce Hornsby - End of Innosence
Foreigner - Waiting For a Girl Like You
Genesis - In the Air Tonight
Guns and Roses - Sweet Child of Mine
Police - Message in a Bottle
Simple Minds - Don't You Forget About Me
Talking Heads - Take Me To the River
Tears for Fears - Shoot

Disk 1 has been done for awhile, but Disk 2 still has some room for improvement (and more songs). I realize that some of these songs are 80's, but the 80's sound is there. More into the whole ballad thing, as you can see, but there is a wide variety of music on there. Please post some suggestions for songs. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I have a lot of downloading to do today.

Burnt Alive - Thanks for the title corrections. As I mentioned in the orriginal post I realize that some of the songs weren't put out in the 80, but they were made my 80's bands and do have that 80's sound. The only acceptions would be Blind Mellon (cause I just love that song and needed it on a CD) and Smashing Pumpkins (a cover of a Fleetwood Mac song put out in 1975, but I didn't hear til the 80's).

No 80's compilation is complete without "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby or "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors.
