This week's New Wave fave comes from Johnny Hates Jazz. Honestly, "Shattered Dreams" is only a so-so song, but I just love the name of the band. Here's some background info from Wikipedia:

"Shattered Dreams" is a hit pop song by British pop group Johnny Hates Jazz. Written by the band's lead singer Clark Datchler, the band's major-label debut single was a worldwide hit.
"Shattered Dreams" entered the UK Singles Chart in March 1987 at a lowly #92 but gained popularity through extensive radio play and video rotation on MTV and the song quickly climbed the charts and peaked at #5 in May 1987, spending three weeks at the top and a total of 16 weeks in the chart. It went on to become a top five hit throughout Europe and Asia, reaching #2 in Japan.
