New Wave Wednesday: "Our House", by Madness (music video)

Via Wikipedia: "Our House" is a single by English ska/pop band Madness, from their UK album The Rise & Fall and their US  compilation Madness. Released in November 1982, it peaked at #5 in the UK singles chart and was their biggest hit in the United States, reaching #7 in the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983.

Though Madness produced many successful singles over a period of twenty years especially in their native United Kingdom, the enormous American popularity of "Our House" means that they are often regarded as one hit wonders in the USA (though technically they are two hit wonders in America, as their version of "It Must Be Love" also subsequently entered the US top 40).
