I am sure there are many individuals here on this site that are good with music, and know a lot about it. I am one of those guys who pretty much listen to everything, and the one song I listed below is one of my all time favorites. I understand that the genre of this song is "New Wave" but to me it sounds a little like Reggie. Can anyone help me find more songs with this type of rhythm and beat to it? ( Sorry if the thread title is a little misleading, I was not sure how to word this question).

What can I say? It's a classic!
As for other similar songs, The Safety Dance by Men Without Hats ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcOZ6xFxJqg ) is always played right after this song on my iTunes. They're relatively similar (in the 80's kind of style).
But if you are looking into the reggae influenced stuff, I think you'd be interested in Ska. Bands like The Specials, The Beat (or English Beat in the US), and Madness ('our House' song). I suspect you may even enjoy bands like Cornershop.
