  1. I was very much influenced by this music in the early 80ies. Still miss those days, the revolution with synths and pop tunes…

  3. wow Ghosts by Japan is incredible IMO, that noise at the start sounds bit crushed, although I presume its just a very old sampler being used or something, and I never heard that Spandau Ballet song they show (the one with the speech at the start), that has a real energetic synth line imo, almost ravey in spirit) :)

    Boy George O’Dowd can be a bit of a pain though eheh, funny at times though in an extremely bitchy kinda way :p

  4. Nice find sir. My favorite era of music bar none. Quiet Life by Japan is probably my favorite song from that genre. I wouldn’t have necessarily said that ABC or Culture Club were part of the new romantic movement though but an excellent video nonetheless.
