A girl named Claire (or a variant of) from an 80's band

30 years ago, next week, my daughter was born. I need a soundtrack for an early life slideshow I have made.

We named her after (I'm pretty sure it was the lead singer of a band) who had a hit single at the time. My daughter has asked why we named her so, and we have just said 'we liked the name of this singer and that we liked this song', but have forgotten the details. This was in Australia but it could have been an international hit too. I have searched the charts high and low and come up with nothing. If we can get a comprehensive list (not just the top 100) of Australian and international singles that were in the charts from say 1981 to 1982 (allowing for conception, birth and fanaticism), I'm pretty sure we could suss out who it was.
Bonus points for anyone that can provide a list of active bands from 1981 to 1982 that had a member with any variant of the name 'Claire'.
