who sang the song our house in the middle of our street?

The hit 1980s song Our House was from the band Madness.

Winning the Best Song award in the Ivor Novello Awards in 1983, it was the band's only Top 10 hit in the U.S.

The British ska/pop band formed in 1973 in Camden Town, London, originally as The North London Invaders.

They later changed the name to Madness, after several lineup changes, as a tribute to one of their favorite ska/reggae artists, Prince Buster who had a song titled Madness.

In 1982 they released their fourth album, The Rise and Fall, which featured the Our House single.

The band's staying power remains right into the 21st century; they played on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in 2009.
