I'm surprised this hasn't been polled yet, so lets see how you vote.

I went for the self titled track VISAGE. Though I do like several of the others. (have 3 albums on cassette, all because of Night Train)



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

Had to go for Fade To Grey as it was the track that really started it for them in 1980. Also liked Mind Of A Toy a lot as well.

I did Fade to Grey, not as it was a hit single, but just for the into to the song. Have Visage LP, up in the attic, and Steve Strange was so good for this period of time. Off the top of my head, can't remember the name of the album..

Fade to grey is a standout classic and beats all the other songs.

Enola Gay and Fade to grey are the two classics I would like to label as pioneering synth hits.
And when you go one step ahead: Pop muzik by M, Video killed the radio star by Buggles
and ofcourse Tubeway Army's Are friends electric paved the path of 80s synth pop.

And now I'm almost forgetting Airport by the Motors which is another excellent late 70s synth hit.

Fade to Grey for me. I really liked the first album and parts of the second, but Night Train was the begining of the end. Once Midge had left that was it really.

Can't say that I remember hearing anything other than Fade to Grey, but that's such an awesome track - and as Dazzler says a classic.  

There's a song by Human League that always makes me break into Fade to Grey. but at the moment I can't remember which one it is! Still, that shows which sticks in my mind more! So, another vote for Fade to Grey here!


Today I have been mostly listening to:

Almost never heard of Visage, but Fade To Grey (I think) I've heard. Must've not made a big impact here.

Dammit, went to vote for Damned Don't Cry and hit Night Train instead.

Funny story on my (true) choice.  I lived in Germany at the time of the release and me and a friend went to a local German record shop every week with a rather nice German girl behind the counter.  I gave her the 12" single and asked her to play so I could listen to it.  When it had finished, my friend said "So, what was it like?" and I'm like "Yeah, that's brilliant, I'm definitely having that" for the counter girl to suddenly pipe up with "oh, I'm sorry, I had that on 33rpm"...
