Sorry to bring up and 'old' thread but I've been listening to "The Vox" a fair but lately and so i put my vote in .. All Stood Still" although my fave is Sleepwalk as it was one of my famous 'jaw droppers' from TOTP performance,( like OMD Messages. or Human league Rock n Roll) .
I always thought Vienna worked well in the album context but didn't think of it as a single .. how wrong can you be eh readers?
"Also ich habe eine Ausbildung gemacht als Industriekaufsmann, und wurde nach der Ausbildung...."
I'm off to see ol' Midge in October - he is coming over here to do a gig. Have been listening to the "best of" and another cd which has both Ultravox and solo stuff from the main man over the last few days. One track which keeps being played is "Call of the Wild", I just can't get enough of that tune.
Love Ultravox, joint favorites with Alphaville as best ever band.
Of those there, Reap The Wild Wind is my choice for three reasons:
1. It's an ace track 2. The video was great and everyone was talking about it in the school playground the morning after TOTP 3. It's the only melody I can play off by heart on a keyboard (I can also do the Mode's Just Can't Get Enough, but normally mess it up a few times first...)
BTW, I always have to attempt both in any shop where there are keyboards on display...
