Generation X. New Wave. Darkwave. Post-Punk. New Romantic. The good, the bad, and the best of the 1980s.
Great song! I had the record (or LP?), which I recently donated to the local library's book sale. It's always fun to try and name all the artists as they sing their parts (c'mon...you all know you do that).Anyway, didn't Bob Geldof recently say he hates the song? Bummer.
Loved this song when I was in high school. I was a little bummed that Sting didn't have a stronger part. He seemed kind of drowned out for some reason. Only a devoted 80s freak would recognize half the Brit-stars in this line up. Several of these artists didn't really hit in the U.S. (i.e. Marilyn). It's also interesting to spot a few Americans in the chorus...Kool and the Gang, Jody Watley.
