They did. I used to think twin shadow / bears in heaven et al were biting off of roxy music, now I know it was this

Fantastic deep album cut from DD - channeling Berlin era Bowie and early Human League. Much more avant garde than the vast bulk of their pop tracks.

THE DRONING ENGINE THROBS IN TIME WITH YOUR BEATING HEARRRRT. Yeah, England in the eighties was a bit austere and bedroomy.

I recently saw a friend of mine do this at karaoke, backed up by the original video; she did all the dance moves perfectly. It was amazing.

Ah, their finest hour. I remember playing this the first time I got a girl back to my bedroom, thinking it would persuade her I had hidden depths and sensitivity. Sadly, my clumsy fumbling spoke louder than Nick Rhodes' mournful synth lines ever could.

in my memory this song is in a higher bpm. great tune though.

yeah @solveigo the low bass and everything feels like it plods and could be sped up, but i love the speed of it. i assume there are dozens of half hearted covers by thrash metal groups, but i can't be bothered to be disappointed now
