Friday 1st March - can you believe it? My youngest bro Little G has been home from France this week and appears to have brought some decent weather back with him (not sure how long it will last but anyway!) - it's been so nice to have sunshine and a sibling around!
Anyway - today's track is such an old (and I mean old!) favourite of mine ...
The Human League - The Sound of the Crowd...
Released in 1981 - Sheffield has produced some pretty good sounds over the years and this synthpop sound was all the rage with myself and my (school) friends. I bought this as an AA single (youngsters you won't have a clue what I'm talking about!) with Empire State Human (I think) on the other side - it's still somewhere at my mum and dads!
Yes - we used to dance like Suzanne and Joanne (the backing singers). Yes I can still do the moves now - even sober! The best bit is during the wailing in the chorus - arms still want/need to waft around in the air - automatic reflex! And yes - I did try out one of those early eighties angled haircuts (although nowhere near as severe as old Phil Oakey's barnett!) but it just looked like a complete pig's ear on me - lesson learned!
Now I really feel like 'getting around town and adding my voice to the sound of the crowd'!
