What are the most memorable 80s New Wave songs that you know?
Flock of Seagulls "I Ran"
also to add to the gayest band pic bit
Gotta be the TEARSSSSS fer FEARSSSSS!
My fav of the time:
Gay, yes, but not as gay as this...
Scandal with Patty Smyth when she used to look hot.
Here's some early stuff from one of my favorite bands, Depeche Mode.
Here's something more recent.
That is exactly my thought.
I was never a true New Wave fan, but an underground fan, I liked (still do) New Order (Joy Division), The Smiths, The Clash, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Depeche Mode.
I lived in Virginia where we only received the mainstream bullshit. Any underground radio that came into town was forced out.
If I had to pick a catchy New Wave tune it prolly would be "Everybody Wants to Rule the World".
Radio Head by The Talking Heads
88 Lines About 44 Women by The Nails
Gleaming Spires - The Sex Girls.
Bow Wow Wow featuring a jail bait Annabella Lwin. I loved this video when I was a teenager.
Forgot about that one, brb......
I melt with you
XTC-Making Plans for Nigel
covered by Primus at a later date.
I was into a bit of this stuff when I was younger, so there's a lot of memorable ones I guess.
Savethewave always had a great playlist of this stuff.
Kon Kan - I beg your pardon
Pet Shop Boys - It's a sin
Erasure - A little Respect/Breath of Love(a jam to this day)
New Order - Subculture
omd- if you leave
real life - send me an angel
Tapps - Burning with fire
Berlin... hot chick, her voice gave me a boner.
The Cure(especially from 87) isn't new wave.
Sorry. . . got a little carried-away. . . trapsed-over into the "Alternative" a little bit. I apologize profusely.
Eh, just tired and cranky. Kind of meant that more as New Wave was pretty dead by about 85ish it'd seem
Fun Fact: he is now a test pilot and races planes
