Making Plans for Nigel, crap lyrics.

Out of those it's "Don't you want me" - Human League

Should have had some Thompson Twins stuff on there though.

was listening to the Twins on the way home tonight actually...

Enjoy the Silence.   Anton Corbijn is good at his stuff.  (The video, that is)

Electric Dreams

I didn't know 'Making Plans For Nigel' was an Electro song.  I thought I knew what Electro was, but I guess I don't  :-\

To me, Electro would be songs like 'Rockit' (Herbie Hancock), 'Street Dance' (Break Machine), 'Hey DJ' (World Famous Supreme Team), et al

they are not electro songs by my definition of electro...synethiser songs maybe (although xtc isnt really)

electro would be Hashim, Captain rock, Newcleus, B Boys etc....

I went for HL Don't You Want Me... I loved everything about the Human League... even Rik's joke about them on the Young Ones!


Phil Oakey's voice was fantastic, and played well with the hot female singer who played the 'girl' part, and I loved the film clip for this as well... close ups of faces with emotionless mouths and heaps of lipstick...and that was Phil!!!
Don't read this, read my review for Lesbian Vampire Killers!!
