Founded in 1977, the Romantics were generally considered too pop to be punk, so they got tagged with the New Wave label. The band achieved the greatest success in 1983 with the single, "Talking in Your Sleep".

From 1980, here is "What I like About You", which went on to be featured in major TV ad campaigns. While the song only peeked at 49 on the Billboard charts when it was first released, it has become their most memorable song.
