I liked a song by them around 1985 called "Appetite", but other than that it didn't seem like they got a lot of airplay in this area...Denver was too busy playing "hair bands".

First of all, Prefab Sprouts "Two Wheels Good" has been called "The Pet Sounds of the 80's" for good reason. Secondly Paddy McAloon if regularly cited as one of the great singer/songwriter geniuses ever. They never hit it big in the U.S., which hurts their chances for the RNR HOF, naturally, but imagine if the Hall of Fame decided they have enough big hair and leather-outfitted heavy rock bands and wanted something more subtle and sophisticated just to show they can think outside of the box.
