Blimey, how long are these pages? I just would'nt be able to list them all. However i think i will give this one a lot of thought and try and come up with a few [ apart from OMD of course ].

It's too hard to have a single favourite - BUT if I had to pin one down to sum up the 80s I'd probably say Blue Monday by New Order!

It's not (musically) a great song really, but it always reminds me of 1983: my first serious girlfriend, going to a youth club in Kirkby-in-Ashfield on Friday nights, leaving school, a long hot summer.

Great, carefree times......

By the way, does anyone else remember these obscure little gems?

The safety dance - Men without hats
The last film - Kissing the pink
Just got lucky - The Jo-Boxers
Don't tell me - Blancmange
King in a catholic style - China crisis
No-one driving - John Foxx
Dancing tight - Galaxy

These ones aren't by any means favourites, but they're pretty worthy. I'm listening to most of them at the mo!

ok, i'm going to start with Lament by Ultravox. I saw them live in Leicester on their final tour and they were amazing. Lament just seemed to stand out from the rest - so atmospheric and sort of spooky as well, a real spine tingler.

Safety Dance was one of the first 12" singles I bought (Blue Monday was the first I think).
